“Taking online courses gave me flexibility. Creating my own schedule allowed me to take care of my many adult responsibilities. I could work on my classes at home or elsewhere. The courses in the business administration program prepare you to be successful in your next step. I got a job immediately following graduation and I have a better understanding of what we do as a business because of what I learned.”
