As online education continues to grow and mature, the opportunities to complete an MBA become richer and more viable. In years prior to this technological advancement, your only choice was to travel to Arizona just to attend the W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State, in Tempe, for instance. You can still do this, of course.
However, the cost of a traditional MBA is often higher than its online cousin, and you will learn the same material. Traditional programs also require that you uproot from your home or your job, since an 8am class will probably interfere with your morning meetings. With an online education, you can meet all of your obligations while advancing your academic credentials. Further, if you work and study concurrently, each will inform the other.
