Initially, the thought of completing or working toward a business degree online seems like the fastest, perhaps easiest thing to do. It's definitely more convenient, especially if you (like most people) have to work for a living and aren't able to attend college or university in a classroom setting. However, don't expect to register for online training and be able to complete six or seven courses right off the bat. In fact, you'll be lucky if you can finish more than two courses at a time. Whether you're researching universities online, or browsing through college catalogues, you'll find that most online training restricts application of more than two course credits per any six week period.
Online training involves just as much work, if not more, than the traditional classroom setting. Due to the very nature of online training, more work is required to meet the specified learning outcomes. In addition, students are expected to lead the learning process themselves by actively engaging in student web boards, posting projects, participating in web board discussions, etc. While you may only actually need to be in front of the computer for a short period of time, the hours spent on assignments and projects will be considerable. Limiting students to two courses per six week term prevents students from working too far ahead and limits the academic burden inherent in all degree training.
