A few years ago, a New York Times article reported there were 13,000 graduate schools of business around the world. It’s no wonder you might have a hard time deciding where to get your MBA, so we’re going to help you narrow it down. Here are a few things to consider:
- Credentials and rankings. Don’t take your best friend’s brother-in-law’s word for it. Check out a school’s credentials before putting them on your short list. Averett University, for example, is fully accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges. Bonus point: U. S. News & World Report just named us the fourth best Southern Regional College for Best Value.
- Concentration options. Schools with a mile-long list of MBA programs may or may not be that great at any of them. That’s why Averett University’s online degree programs focus on three hot topics with high success potential: marketing, leadership and human resource management. Any of the three will prepare you to take on business challenges in a world that never stops changing.
- You can personalize just about everything these days, from your Spotify playlist to the way your credit card looks. Why not your MBA class schedule and completion time? Averett University offers online MBA programs so you can attend class and study on your own time, map out a course schedule to complete your degree however quickly (or slowly) you want, and start at your choice of five times per year for ultimate juggling with other life priorities.
- Value for the money. Like everything else, MBA programs run the gamut from really cheap to outrageously expensive. The trick is finding the one that gives you the best bang for the buck. Averett University scores high in this category, with outstanding, market-ready curriculum taught by industry-experienced instructors in small classes. If you need help covering tuition, we offer financial aid to those who qualify, including scholarships for veterans and active military.
- Real-life success. It’s hard to beat a thumbs-up from people who’ve been there, done that. More than 5,005 students have graduated with MBAs from Averett University and lots of them can’t wait to tell their stories. “If you’re thinking about returning to school,” said one Averett alum, “I would highly encourage it. It’s a short-term sacrifice for a long-term gain.”
