Taking courses at Husson through the Online Division has been super helpful because it allowed me to find that balance between work and school. I would plan out each week for my classes. The discussion posts each week made it feel like we were in person. The professors were super helpful and responded very quickly to emails whenever I had a question about a specific assignment.

How Do Online MBA Programs Work?

Husson offers its classes in convenient seven-week terms, so students can flexibly pace their classes to work around their own schedule. We deliver our classes in Canvas, a learning management system. Our classes are designed to be asynchronous; we never ask all students to be in class at a particular time or be logged in together. You access the class when it fits your schedule.

Each class is carefully designed to let students know what they are supposed to be doing and why they are being asked to do it! Assignments are carefully created to be applicable, real world projects and instruction is clear and concise so that you get right to the point. You can apply your learning in your professional life right away.

Along the way, you will work with a student success advisor who will be available to assist you in navigating the curriculum and planning classes. They will check in with you regularly to assist you in your success.

How Hard Is an Online MBA?

Husson’s online MBA is challenging, and it requires a time commitment from students. We have tailored the courses and sequencing to work with your schedule and needs. Students can expect to spend between 15 to 20 hours of work per week on their MBA class. The seven-week courses also allow students to focus closely on each class while making rapid progress.

How Long Does It Take To Get an MBA Online?

Husson’s online MBA programs are flexible and work with your schedule. You can earn your Husson MBA in a little as one year. Some students elect to take more time to complete their degree at a pace that fits their schedule.
