The Scott College of Business MBA Online is a highly-respected, affordable, and flexible advanced business degree with top accreditation for students seeking an accelerated career track. It is designed to promote a work-life balance while offering the flexibility to graduate in 12 to 24 months.

“Continuing education is important because it provides contemporary learning while helping to retain focus and relevance in our careers,” Bobbie O’Neill said. “We were both fortunate to be able to pursue post-graduate education to enhance our careers in education and banking."

“Our three sons were able to advance their careers as well with continuing their education while employed.  However, we understand that the availability of time and financial resources are limited for our MBA candidates, so we are pleased that the Scott College of Business MBA Online program will address those needs.”
