What are the advantages of distance learning education?

Post by qunnin » Sat May 17, 2008 6:02 am

Hi all,
I have a plan to do MBA from an online college, but before taking admission I want to know about the advantages of distance learning education so I can see if it’s best for me. I’ve never done it before and it will be a major decision in my life. Please help if you have any information on this. Thanks for your help.

I see long distance education as a last resort because a) you're too busy to attend regular classes, or b) you live too far away to attend a university.

In my experience the interaction with professor and other students is one of the most valuable parts of going to college. I would hate to not have that were I to go back to school.

So I don't know that there are any advantages of distance learning from my point of view except perhaps that you can do your studying whenever you want.

You are absolutely right! before making such a major move, it’s always important to understand what it’s all about, and the pros and cons dealing with it? I don’t have much experience with it but some friends who are doing it referred me to this page advantages of distance learning as a good place to start. It gives much of the information about distance learning education including some good information about MBA colleges and courses.
Hope this helps. Best of luck for your future!!
