Why Study Business in an Online Program?

Online certificate and MBA degree programs are attractive to a diverse student body for a wide variety of reasons. Consider these benefits to receiving your graduate business education online from one of the two exciting programs offered by the KU School of Business.

There’s No Need to Relocate.

You don't have to move out of state or find a home close to campus if you want to study at the highly regarded KU School of Business.

Eliminate a Commute.

Don't sit in traffic or rearrange your schedule to drive to class. Study from the comfort of wherever you are.

Work as You Learn.

Many online business students at the KU School of Business continue to work part time or even full time as they study. This allows them to keep earning an income as they pursue a degree that has the potential to raise their salary.

Create a Better Study-Life Balance.
