            Is An Online MBA Worth The Money?

            More business schools are offering online MBA programs, but do they offer the same value as a traditional, full-time MBA?

            Business schools are taking more of their learning online. In the past five years, the number of AACSB-accredited business schools offering fully-online MBA programs increased by 83%.

            Juliane Iannarelli, chief knowledge officer at AACSB, says COVID-19 could accelerate this trend as many MBA programs have shifted from an in-person to online format in recent months.

            Patrick is one of over 400 students who have enrolled on Birmingham’s online MBA—the first fully-online MBA to be accredited by the...
