The iMBA on Coursera: A Top-Ranked Business School Degree That Fits Your Life
We wanted to do something that would democratize education and also make a degree that was available for people to be able to work around their lives so they can continue to work, continue to raise families. Our online I MBA it’s actually the same degree, as any other way of earning an MBA from the University of Illinois. And so you’re a full-fledged member of the community. When you graduate you’re one of our alums and we love all our alums the same. The iMBA basically stood out because the fact that for the cost, the $22,000, the faculty, the flexibility in the program. I don’t think I would be able to have finished any other program because after giving birth it was really super hard and having something that’s based on certificates in a modular structure made the entire difference for me. I was shocked at how much it felt as good or better than when I was sitting in class in my undergraduate days. The professor’s right there looking into the camera. Everyone has their cameras on on their computers. There’s a chat feature. So you can also type in a question and the professor can you know answer your question that way. Office hours are another opportunity to get beyond just sort of information transfer and into more of the coaching aspect. I think the cool thing is that you can truly participate from whatever you are. These systems work on your desktop, on your cell phone, So it’s device agnostic. Getting my MBA makes me feel empowered because I don’t need to stop being myself. I don’t need to stop working I don’t need to stop being a mother. I don’t need to stop having my life and And that is everything.
