The Pros and Cons of Online Learning

If you're considering completing an bachelors degree in business online, there are some things you should take into consideration. Many well-known colleges and universities offer the option of obtaining certain credits through online learning (part-time), where others offer a complete bachelors degree in business online (full-time). Online learning works best for people who are self-directed learners, highly motivated, able to set and keep deadlines, and/or learn best without the distraction of a busy classroom setting. While online learning does provide some opportunity for email interaction with faculty and other online peers, the majority of the work will be done in solitude. The following are some pros and cons of online learning:


  • No set classroom schedule to follow
  • Study in the comfort of your own home
  • No need to be a computer expert to complete studies online
  • Not intimidated by classroom dynamics

  • Long hours working alone
  • Not always immediate technical help
  • Sense of disconnect from the professor/classmates
  • Unable to benefit from classroom discussion
Unless you've experience online learning before, register for one class and see how it goes. If all goes well, you may just be ready for full-time enrollment in an online setting.
