Business students can obtain their MBA online

Employment of business and financial operations occupations is projected to grow 8 percent by 2024, adding about 632,400 new jobs, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

A bachelor’s degree is required for most of those jobs and Del Mar College has made it easier than ever for students to obtain one, starting with its 100 percent online associate degree in business administration. DMC students now have the opportunity to obtain up to an MBA without ever stepping foot in a classroom.

At DMC, some classes in the degree plan are offered in eight-week schedules, allowing students to take a class when it’s convenient for them. Once a student completes their associate degree it can be transferred to the online Bachelor of Science in business administration degree at Texas A&M University-Commerce. Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi then offers an online MBA for students who have completed their bachelor’s in business administration.

Studying in the comfort of your own home has many benefits, including financial. At minimum, not only will you be able to cut commuting and/or housing costs, you could earn more once you graduate. The Bureau of Labor Statistics states the median annual wage for business and financial occupations was $64,790 in May 2014, which was higher than the median annual wage for all occupations of $35,540.

Students interested in the online programs can reach out to Del Mar College Adviser for Business Administration for A.A. at 361-698- 1372, A&M-Commerce for B.S.B.A. at 903-886- 5664, or Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi for M.B.A. at 877-588-3295.
