Online student experience

online courses are offered in eight-week terms.

Online courses are offered in eight-week terms with five terms per year. Most students take two courses per term, putting you on track to complete an MBA in under three years and an MS in under two years. You will work with an academic advisor to craft a schedule that meets your needs and may take additional or fewer courses based on your schedule.

Courses feature predominantly asynchronous learning activities, which may be completed at any time. Some courses recommend or require synchronous learning activities, which occur in real time. The asynchronous format allows for students to complete weekly assignments on a schedule that works for them.

Online courses are as rigorous as in-person courses, and online students have access to all of the university resources available to on-site students. These include the Student Success Center, library services, student organizations, and career coaching. Online students also have access to additional specialized services designed for online learning.

Online residency courses

Carey Business School online programs offer opportunity for networking and in-person learning at on-campus residencies. Online courses with residency components bring together online students from across the globe for two to three days of intensive face-to-face educational and social activities. Students engage in traditional course instruction and network with fellow students (both online and in-person), faculty, alumni, and business leaders.

All residencies are held at Carey Business School’s Baltimore campus.

Students taking online sections of the following residencies are required to attend in-person residencies as part of the course curriculum:

Students in the online Flexible MBA are required to attend three in-person residencies, and masters of science students are required to attend one in-person residency.
