Juggling Classes & a Job Just Got Easier for Alvernia MBA Students
From checking Twitter while eating breakfast to sending emails when in a meeting, multi-tasking has become the new normal. Sometimes, though, it’s easier to concentrate on one thing at a time.
Which is one of the reasons Alvernia’s MBA program now offers classes in a modular format.
With a modular format, classes meet once a week in a condensed eight-week time frame. This lets students concentrate on one subject. After that class ends, the student can enroll in another eight-week class and then earn a total of six credits for one semester.
The MBA program is designed so students can move between the online and on-campus classes with ease. This gives students the flexibility to schedule classes around their work and family life. The MBA courses rotate between online and on-campus so students do not have to wait a few semesters to take a class they need.
“Students seem to really like the mod format because it allows them to take the necessary six credits a semester for financial aid purposes while only having one class at a time,” explains Kelly Burr, Alvernia’s coordinator of graduate admissions and student services.
Busy working professionals are also pleased that the modular classes allow students to move though the program at an accelerated pace.
Alvernia is the first university in the Reading area that offers an MBA degree in modular classes.
