How Can I Earn a Business Degree Online?

Published: July 3, 2017 | Updated: October 31, 2017

Are you ready to commit to a better career and a better life? Then, it’s time polish up your professional portfolio, fill in a few gaps, and get started on the right path. Start with your education. Today, you can earn a business degree online, so it’s easier than ever to fit lesson, study, and test time into even busy schedules. Here’s what to do:

Choose a program. What you choose will depend on where you start. At Charter College, if you already have appropriate credit hours in business or accounting, you could earn your Associate’s Degree in as little as 5 months. If you already have your Associate’s Degree and sufficient credits, you could earn your Bachelor’s Degree in as little as 12 months. 

Apply and enroll. Once you’ve decided upon the program, you’ll need to apply and enroll. You’ll also want to examine financial aid options that might be available to you. There are Federal, State, and private scholarships, grants, and loans available to students who qualify. There may also be benefits if you or your family member is a Veteran or active-duty member of the U.S. Military Service.

Make a plan. Although online programs are often flexible and convenient, they still require time and dedication for success. Check out the program requirements and look at assignments and due dates. Add them to your personal calendar. Then, decide when and where you’ll do your work. A quiet study place at home is a good idea, but if you need to complete assignments on work breaks and at coffee shops, that’s okay too—as long as you plan for them.

Follow through. Connect with your instructor early-on and communicate when you have questions or concerns. Develop a routine that includes logging in to the school portal every day, and setting aside time to work on assignments. Make sure to complete your work on time—every time. If something trips you up, don’t let it derail you. Contact your instructor and get back on track.
