Top five benefits of an Online MBA

1. Waivers for all part-time applicants.

We are temporarily suspending testing requirements for all applicants to our part-time programs for the summer and fall starts this year. This includes our Flexible MBA program, which can be completed fully online.

2. Scholarships for part-time MBA applicants. 

We offer a number of scholarships that are available to our part-time and online MBA applicants. Some we have newly created just for you, like the Baltimore Business Scholarship. Others we have opened up to part-time and online MBA applicants just this year, like our Women in Business Scholarship. The best way to see if you qualify is to reach out to an admissions officer today.

3. Flexible format. 

We understand the needs of working professionals. That’s why we’ve created a format that is as flexible as can be. Courses are offered in short, eight-week terms. This allows you to pick a schedule that works for you. Online, in-person, or both: your business school schedule fits into your life, not the other way around.

4. Return on Investment. 

Fifty-eight percent of our part-time and online MBA students reported receiving a salary increase while studying in the program. An online MBA from Carey starts paying dividends almost right away.
