The online Early Advantage MBA program is designed for professionals who are just beginning their careers and seeking advanced education in business fundamentals. Students' experience tends to be at a professional, individual contributor or "analyst" level. Course materials focus on developing early career professionals' critical analysis and decision-making skills.
The MBA degree is awarded by Canada-based Lansbridge University, one of the world's first Internet-based universities and a leader in the rapidly growing world of online education.
The program is for early-career professionals with one or more years of work experience. The Early Advantage MBA program features:
- Ten core courses (60 credits). No electives.
- A 22-week course format allows student to study 1-3 courses at a time and thus complete the program within 2 to 4 years.
- Students interact through real-time Virtual Classroom sessions with faculty and fellow students four times during each course.
Each Early Advantage MBA course has defined start and end dates, but students choose when to work on their assignments, team projects and other course deliverables. Each course requires approximately 16 hours of work per week. There is a longer break in summer and in December.
An online degree program with a difference.
Online education does not have to mean students feel "remote" from faculty, fellow students, staff and resources. The Early Advantage MBA Program is especially designed for Internet delivery and frequent interaction. Each course includes Web-based instructional/ tutorial sections, Virtual Classroom sessions as well as online and offline testing.
Students are assigned to a study group throughout the entire program. Group members work together to complete casework and assignments that complement their self-study. Learning Assistant will respond to students' inquiries within 24 hours.
