The distinguishing features of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s Kenan-Flagler Business School online MBA@UNC program include flexibility, a strong core curriculum, and talented professors and students. The material covered in the program is “heavily invested in analytical skills” and is “also very big on leadership and management.” Students have the option to earn their MBA with a concentration in entrepreneurship, “which is not offered at most schools.” The format of the program is comprised of both synchronous and asynchronous material, which “holds students accountable,” as it “reinforces learning” and “makes students to engage with each other.” “What the student learns from the material is on the student.” MBA@UNC students enjoy having “the ability to have synchronous sessions with classmates and professors,” as well as the “opportunity to meet classmates every quarter (or more often) in person.” “The rigor of the program is not lost through the use of an online platform”: The “live virtual classroom” gives students the feel of a traditional classroom with the convenience of being able to work from ...

The University of Florida’s Hough Graduate School of Business online MBA program is “the best overall combination of rankings, student feedback, faculty level, and course structure.” It offers a “high-caliber program with flexibility for a chaotic work environment,” “great value for the cost,” and an “accelerated pace.” Students rave about the “challenging, yet very beneficial” program, which includes “real-life business cases,” a “great online platform to deliver materials,” and “quality instructors.” One student marvels about “the program’s ability to take an online education and foster an environment where in two years time I feel like I know all fifty students in my cohort personally and professionally.” That isn’t an easy task, but one of the ways this is accomplished is by “keeping the same groups for half of the program.” Another is by providing the opportunity “to meet every few months on campus, to connect with cohorts and lecturers.” Students voice the general opinion that “the program allows a good balance” between schoolwork and personal life, although “certain terms are more hectic than others.” One ...

Its students see it as a "well-known" and "rigorous" "accelerated program" that delivers 47 credit hours in 17 month of study.

James Madison University offers two AASCB-accredited MBA programs: the Innovation MBA and the Information Security MBA. JMU's information security concentration, particularly, is unique in the field and a "hot topic among industry professionals." Students describe it as the "best degree that combines Infosec and MBA." Students like JMU's instructional format, especially the hybrid format. "The mix of on-line and in-person classes was incredibly valuable. The program was designed to make efficient use of live classroom time." But students still enjoy enough flexibility to accommodate "any career or geographical changes within a several hundred-mile radius" from campus. Students are "also encouraged to meet outside of class often to enhance the learning experience." The university's technology supports this dynamic mode of learning through Blackboard Collaborate, which students describe as "seamless" and "very easy to navigate" while facilitating "great interaction from classmates and professors." The school has also recently rolled out SharePoint online, a platform that allows for real time collaborations, which works well in a learning environment that "stresses collaboration and the importance of teamwork."

The University of Nebraska at Lincoln's Online MBA program holds applicants to competitive expectations—two years of management/leadership experience, a 600 GMAT score, and a 3.0 undergraduate GPA are highly recommended—but students who make the cut are rewarded with an "internationally recognized" program that strikes "the perfect balance of reputation, curriculum quality, flexibility . . . and price." Students in this 100 percent online program may choose one of five academic concentrations (in business analytics, supply chain management, international business, finance, or marketing), and many name "the specialty in business data analytics" as a huge draw. Likewise, students praise the "well-rounded" curriculum with "many elective courses" all "structured into 8-week semesters [which] makes it easy to focus on one course at a time while working full-time." The "tremendously helpful" yet "challenging" professors are also "very accessible." "All the professors use the online setting in their own unique way with different forms of student collaboration and interaction" aided by technology like TechSmith Relay for interactive lecture videos, frequent live online instruction sessions, and a shared repository for ...

Syracuse University is regarded as a “nationally-recognized school” and its Martin J. Whitman School of Management falls nothing short of its parent institution’s esteemed reputation. The online MBA program provides “a solid educational and professional core,” “online interaction with classmates and the professor,” and “flexibility of an online format instead of going part time attending classroom lectures.” The school also offers immersion opportunities “so that online students still have the opportunity to network with their peers.” This makes them feel as though they are “a part of the institution and not just a number.” One student states, “The program has allowed me to look at the business world differently in real time.” The majority of topics cover “current business practices and can be applied to current business problems.” While the amount of work can be “a lot to manage” according to many students, “the way the classes are laid out make it very easy for students to access, since there are many different days and hours students are able to choose from to accommodate their ...
