5 Things to Expect From Your Online MBA Classmates

Though Clara Cedeno is an MBA student at the Syracuse University Whitman School of Management, her classmates aren’t just New York state residents – far from it, in fact.

That’s because the 43-year-old consultant is enrolled in the online MBA@Syracuse program. Students live around the world – from Dubai to Alaska – and work in a range of professions. They interact through discussion boards and videoconferencing, with additional opportunities to connect in person.

“Everybody comes from a different place with a different experience,” says the Fayetteville, New York, resident. “That could actually enhance your own learning.”

Experts say prospective online MBA students should expect geographic and professional diversity among their classmates. Most students already have several years of work experience under their belts and either hope to advance to a management role or switch fields entirely to business.

“Students can cull from a broader range of peer knowledge and experiences,” says Doreen Shanahan, a marketing professor at the Pepperdine University Graziadio School of Business, which offers an online MBA.

Aside from regular virtual interaction during class, here are five things students typically gain from their classmates in an online MBA program.

1. Insight from various professions: Given their different career goals, online MBA students’ typically work across disciplines – including business but also in specialties ranging from health care to information technology.

That professional diversity teaches students to analyze business problems in unique ways, says Matt Bullion, a Graziadio online student and California-based brand marketing manager.

“Myself as a sales and marketing guy – I may have one way of approaching a problem,” he says. “But a medical doctor might come at it from a completely different perspective.”

2. Perspectives from different business cultures: Because online MBA students might live or regularly travel during their program, they provide insight into how businesses function across the country and overseas, experts say.

That’s different from many on-ground programs, where “they’re not actually currently enmeshed in Silicon Valley, or Miami, or the business world of New York, or whatever it may be,” while also pursuing an education far away, says Bob Monroe, director of the hybrid MBA program at the Carnegie Mellon University Tepper School of Business.

Monroe says current part-time, hybrid MBA students in Tepper’s program reside in 25 states with a few living abroad.

“When they’re working in a foreign country, the rules, the regulations are so different, and they’re working under different conditions and situations – that brings a different perspective on how business is conducted in other places,” says Dilip Jain, a physician who earned an MBA partially online from the University of Massachusetts—Amherst Isenberg School of Management.

3. Broad business networking opportunities: The fact that online MBA students live and work worldwide opens up opportunities for networking nationally and internationally – a contrast with the experience of on-ground MBA students, where classmates generally live locally.

Nick Alaga, a Calfornia-based student in the MBA@Syracuse program, says he connected with a classmate about a job opening on the East Coast, for instance.

Given the experience and connections that working online MBA students already have, these programs allow for effective networking across fields within business.

“The folks that we have working in tech jobs in Silicon Valley can actually talk with the people doing finance jobs in Boston and people doing operations jobs in Denver,” says Monroe from Tepper.

4. Chances to build relationships in person: In addition to live course components requiring students to virtually attend class at a specific time, many online MBA programs also have on-campus requirements and opportunities to explore businesses by traveling internationally. These allow online students to interact face to face.

During CMU Tepper’s regular “access weekends” on its main and satellite campuses, online students together attend networking sessions, among other activities. And in the MBA@Syracuse program, Cedeno traveled to Dublin, Ireland for a residency to learn about business in the country.

“You actually get to meet a lot of people you see on camera in person,” Cedeno says. “You really establish a connection.”

5. Experience with virtual collaboration: Experts say many online MBA programs require students to solve larger business problems through virtual group assignments – similar to a workplace environment.

Bullion, the Pepperdine student, says he completed a five-person team project in his corporate finance class on a publicly traded company’s free cash flows. He and his team members communicated via videoconferencing and phone.

“We really do get to know each other,” he says. “I’ve made some great friends in this program already.”

Weigh Whether to Work During College

There was a time when a student could just work a summer job to help pay for college, but today more students are having to work their way through school to offset rising tuition costs.

In fact, the U.S. Census Bureau found that 72 percent of undergraduates work and one-fifth of those students worked full time.

Most part-time jobs that students find while in school pay lower hourly wages, says Anthony P. Carnevale, director of the Georgetown University Center on the Education and the Workforce.

“You can’t make enough working retail to pay for a college degree,” he says. “High school jobs don’t pay enough to get you through college, and these are the types of jobs that college students typically get.”

But despite lower pay, college advising experts say that shouldn’t deter undergrads from pursuing part-time work. There are several positive outcomes, they say, that come from working during school – less in loans and better time management skills, to name a couple.

“I’m a big advocate of working during school,” says Sean Moore, founder of college financial planning service SMART College Funding. “If that means they’re working five, 10 or 15 hours a week, I think that helps build character and pays part of the cost of college.”

For students who are considering or planning to work while in school, here are several points to consider.

1. Work no more than 20 hours: Several studies, including one by the Department of Education, show that students who work fewer than 15 to 20 hours often report a higher GPA than those who don’t work at all.

“There’s kind of a window of one to 15 hours a week and maybe as high as 20 hours a work,” Moore says. “When you’re working more than 20 hours a week, it becomes harder to juggle everything.”

Grades and school completion rates start to drop when a student’s number of hours worked per week is more than 20 hours, experts say.

Moore says students may consider taking out a loan if work starts to affect school performance and other options – such as federal loans – have been exhausted.

2. Consider options other than work-study: When college senior Zach Schneider, 21, started his freshman year at American University, he was offered work-study as part of his financial aid package.

“What I found was the work-study program wasn’t as flexible as I wanted it to be. It wasn’t a really interesting job with what I wanted to do and it didn’t pay well,” the communications major says.

Under work-study, students earn the federal minimum wage – $7.25 – but may earn more, depending on the job.

Schneider says he did only one semester of work-study and found catering and restaurant work to pay better.

“It served two things for me: It was a way for me to make money and a way for me to eat very cheaply – I would get some level of a discount,” says the California native, who estimates his part-time earnings to be around $5,000 annually.

Experts say if a student can make more – rather than $7.25 an hour – then it’s better to take the higher paying job.

“But sometimes the reality is you have to take what you can get,” Moore from SMART College Funding says. “If work-study is available, on campus and you don’t have to commute or search, then that can be a viable option.”

3. Develop a business: Derek Sallmann, a senior at Wisconsin Lutheran College, earns money from his musical performances to cover college expenses.

“It’s good for everyone to have their own independent project whether you start your own business or sell something you hand make or perform or do art,” says the solo musician and biology major, who sings and plays guitar at different venues around Milwaukee. “You also learn business skills and how to operate in the real world.”

 

Sallmann says he earns as little as food for payment to $500 from performing at a gig, but really enjoys the flexibility of creating his own schedule. The 21-year-old says he’s made enough money from his music to offset the need for student loans.

“There’s nothing wrong or bad about taking out student loans; I just always thought it would be better if I could not do that,” he says.

His advice to students: “Find creative ways to make money whether it’s starting a lawn business in the summer or teaching something you’re good at. It’s always good to get creative to cut down on costs.”

BUEX-C534 Simulation and Optimization for Business Analytics (3.00)
In this course, we develop analytical models using simulation and optimization to analyze and recommend sound solutions to complex business problems.  Models are discussed to solve complex problems using various tools on spreadsheets; including Excel solver for linear, integer and genetic programming problems,  probabilistic simulations, and risk analysis including statistical analysis of simulation models.
BUEX-C535 Developing Value through BA Applications (3.00)
This course will introduce students to the art and science of developing quantitative models that can be used to make better decisions. We will show how sophisticated Excel models can be applied to many problems such as those you will face in your internships and ultimate career. In addition to Excel fundamentals, we will learn how optimization tools, as part of the business analytic toolkit, are used to find tools to find the optimal-or near optimal solutions to constrained optimization problems. We also will consider Monte Carlo simulations that allow us to model uncertainty in Excel models. Throughout the course we will show you lots of features of Excel 2013 that will be useful in your career as well as your Kelley classes.
C565 Thinking Strategically: Game Theory and Business Strategy (3.00)
Game Theory has traditionally been a tool of economists, but its use in management situations has been growing rapidly in recent years. This trend is sure to continue. Managerial decisions are not static and cannot be made in isolation. Instead, a manager must account for the reactions of both rival firms, subordinates, and superiors to this directives and proposals. Game theory is a tool to use to examine these interactions. The course extends the analysis of game theory and business strategy that you began in the Managerial Economics portion of the Core. The ultimate aim of the course is to strengthen your ability to think strategically in business situations, rather than to teach you facts or theories. To achieve this aim, we will iterate between theory and practice. We will use both formal case studies and real world examples to sharpen our strategic thinking skills.

10 Colleges With the Highest Acceptance Rates

The U.S. News Short List, separate from our overall rankings, is a regular series that magnifies individual data points in hopes of providing students and parents a way to find which undergraduate or graduate programs excel or have room to grow in specific areas. Be sure to explore The Short List: College, The Short List: Grad School and The Short List: Online Programs to find data that matter to you in your college or graduate school search.

At some colleges, the chances of being admitted are slim. But there are also schools at the opposite end of the spectrum, where applicants don’t need to worry too much about the odds.

Among the 1,255 ranked schools that submitted these data to U.S. News in an annual survey, nine reported acceptance rates of 100 percent in fall 2015. Also on the list is Cameron University in Oklahoma, which admitted 99.7 percent.

Most of the 10 schools on the list are Regional Colleges – which focus on undergraduate education but award fewer than half of their degrees in the liberal arts – or Regional Universities, which offer a range of undergraduate and some master’s degrees, but few doctoral programs.

[Discover three tips to complete college applications on time.]

The University of Pikeville in Kentucky is the lone National Liberal Arts College on the list. These schools emphasize undergraduate education and award at least half their degrees in liberal arts disciplines. The University of Texas—El Paso is the list’s only National University, meaning it has a range of undergraduate, master’s and doctoral programs.

A majority of schools on the list are designated as Rank Not Published, or RNP, meaning that they rank in the bottom one-fourth of their ranking category. In those cases, U.S. News calculates a rank for the school but has decided not to publish it.

An additional 101 ranked schools nearly admitted 100 percent of applicants, reporting acceptance rates of higher than 90 percent to U.S. News for fall 2015, including the University of Toledo in Ohio and Montana State University—Billings.

Meanwhile, schools with the lowest acceptance rates for fall 2015 include Alice Lloyd College, a National Liberal Arts College in Kentucky, at 4.7 percent; Stanford University in California, at 5 percent; and the Ivy League Harvard University, at 5.6 percent.

Below are the 10 colleges that had the highest acceptance rates in fall 2015. Unranked schools, which did not meet certain criteria required by U.S. News to be numerically ranked, were not considered for this report.

10 Colleges Where Applying Early Helps

The U.S. News Short List, separate from our overall rankings, is a regular series that magnifies individual data points in hopes of providing students and parents a way to find which undergraduate or graduate programs excel or have room to grow in specific areas. Be sure to explore The Short List: College, The Short List: Grad School and The Short List: Online Programs to find data that matter to you in your college or graduate school search.

Of all the advantages applying early to college offers, students might find one particularly appealing: a better chance of getting in.

Typically, students can apply to only one school under early decision and must attend if they’re admitted. That’s not the case for the less-restrictive early action and regular decision options, where students can apply to several schools and decisions aren’t binding.

[Learn what happens to students who back out of early decision offers.]

Among the 245 ranked colleges and universities that submitted these data to U.S. News in an annual survey, the average acceptance rate for applicants who applied early decision or early action for fall 2015 was about 63.1 percent, while the average for regular applicants was about 50.2 percent – a difference of 12.9 percentage points.

But among the 10 schools where applying early is most likely to boost applicants’ chances of being admitted, the gap between early and regular acceptance rates was much wider. Those schools admitted an average 83.7 percent of early applicants but just 37.8 percent under regular decision – a difference of 45.9 percentage points.

At the top of the list is American University in the District of Columbia, which accepted 87.2 percent of early applicants and 32.4 percent of regular applicants. Each of the 10 schools on the list saw a difference of at least 41.7 percentage points, with American University’s at 54.8 percentage points.

One school, Meredith College in North Carolina, admitted 100 percent of early applicants compared with 58.3 percent of regular applicants.

Nine of the schools on the list are either National Universities – which offer a range of undergraduate majors plus master’s and doctoral programs – or National Liberal Arts Colleges, which emphasize undergraduate education and award at least half of their degrees in the liberal arts.

Trinity University in Texas is the list’s only Regional University, meaning it has many undergraduate and some master’s programs but few doctoral programs.

[Discover tips to complete college applications on time.]

A few schools, including Presbyterian College in South Carolina, Abilene Christian University in Texas and Georgetown University in the District of Columbia, admitted fewer students from their early applicant pools than under regular decision. For instance, for fall 2015, Georgetown admitted 13.3 percent of early applicants and 19.4 percent of regular applicants.

Below are the 10 schools where at least 10 percent of applicants applied early and early applicants had the strongest chance for admission compared with regular applicants for fall 2015. Unranked schools, which did not meet certain criteria required by U.S. News to be numerically ranked, were not considered for this report.

MBA Program Overview

The U.S. News Short List, separate from our overall rankings, is a regular series that magnifies individual data points in hopes of providing students and parents a way to find which undergraduate or graduate programs excel or have room to grow in specific areas. Be sure to explore The Short List: College, The Short List: Grad School and The Short List: Online Programs to find data that matter to you in your college or graduate school search.

With many families worried about the competition in college admissions, the number of submitted applications has soared in recent years.

A recent report by the Higher Education Research Institute at the University of California—Los Angeles found more than 28 percent of fall 2015 freshmen submitted seven or more applications – more than double the percentage from a decade ago.

[Find out the 10 most and least expensive private colleges.]

But these fees can add up quickly for prospective students – especially with the Common Application, experts say. The Common App makes submitting multiple applications easier since the form is accepted at nearly 700 colleges and universities.

While some universities waive or reduce fees for students who apply online, other schools charge a hefty amount per application.

[Explore the colleges and universities that report meeting full financial need.]

California’s Stanford University charged $90 per application, more than any other university among the 1,028 ranked colleges that reported application fee data to U.S. News in spring 2016.

Among the schools that submitted data to U.S. News, the average application fee was around $42. The most common fee charged was $50.

Of the 45 schools that charged $75 or more for an application, the majority – 38 in total – are National Universities; these institutions offer a full range of undergraduate majors, plus master’s and doctoral programs.

Below is a list of colleges and universities that charged the highest application fees in fall 2015, though all schools listed will waive the fee for students with financial need. Unranked schools, which did not meet certain criteria required by U.S. News to be numerically ranked, were not considered for this report.
