If you are often on-the-go, travel frequently or face constantly changing work commitments you may find the rigors of classwork impossible to manage. You can travel freely, relocate, or live in remote areas without interrupting your MBA studies. The online learning format suits students ‘ability to juggle the competing demands of work, family, and study.
