A: It is recommended that you log in to your online classroom on a daily basis. Most students log in to the course site at least three times per week.
Q: Do I have to log in to work on my MBA courses at specific times of the day?

A: Students can take two courses at a time to be considered a full-time student or one course at a time to be considered a part-time student in our Standard Online MBA.

Students with prior business experience may also be eligible for our 10-Month Online MBA and can complete their degree sooner.

A: Yes, you are able to take time off from your program. Simply do not register for courses that term and resume your enrollment the following term.
