The primary advantage of taking business courses online is flexibility. Whether you want to take one business class online or a full semester load of 15 credits or more, you have a distinct advantage over your peers who are attending on-campus lectures.
Since your “virtual” classroom is typically open 24/7, you can work your normal day or even those extra hours that management sometimes wants without missing class time. You can set your own pace, be it aggressive or haphazard because of work and family requirements.
Convincing an on-campus institution that you'd prefer your classes to be held from 11:00 pm to 2:00 am may be a bit challenging. However, should you prefer or need to use this time slot to complete your coursework, many business online classes will give you that flexibility. Even if you're a little less “nocturnal,” you won't have to regularly leave work early or miss dinners with your family to attend your virtual classes.
A secondary, but no less important advantage of taking business classes online is cost. Completing on-campus business courses, even at a passive pace – one or two classes per semester – will involve commutes at pre-scheduled times not of your choosing. In addition to gas and auto wear and tear, you'll face a stress-level cost. Conversely, you can “attend” your business online classes at your preferred times - in your fuzzy slippers if you'd like.
