Top Online MBA Programs in New York City

Online MBA Programs

It used to be that online schooling was less useful and well respected than on-campus learning. It was thought that online students took the easy path to their education, but no longer. Now, for many graduate programs, their online MBAs are just as exceptional as their on-campus counterparts. Students take the same classes with the same professors and the same benefits.

So, considering all of that, what graduate business schools in New York City have the best online MBA programs? We’ve compiled a list of the top online programs in the city.

Zarb School of Business – Hofstra University

The Online MBA program at Zarb School of Business is perfect for those candidates who’ve always wanted to get MBA but could never attend a traditional program due to life and work constraints. At Zarb, the Online MBA offers two concentrations either in Strategic Business Management or Strategic Healthcare Management. And Zarb professors teach every course, the same faculty who teach in their on-campus MBA program.

As for the unique features of Zarb’s Online MBA, there are quite a few. Students can join the cohort plan and switch between online and on-campus studying as needed for the ultimate in flexibility. Plus, the cohort option allows students to complete their Online MBA in just two years. Finally, at Zarb, Online MBAs still get to participate in an international experience through the Global Practicum on Strategy.

Lubin School of Business – Pace University

At the Lubin School, their Executive MBA program is a mix of online study and on-campus, weekend courses. It’s a highly flexible program that allows students to receive an exceptional education with only 34 days on campus spread out over 20 months. For the online portion of the program, students use Blackboard to communicate with their classmates and faculty on a regular basis. It’s a team environment that encourages learning through collaboration on projects and more.

For the on-campus portion, MBAs attend three-day weekends every other month. The weekend residencies take place Friday through Sunday and include exams, presentations and team activities.

Stevens Institute of Technology School of Business

The Stevens’ Online MBA program allows students to take part in live lectures and download program content from wherever they happen to be whether that’s at home, in the office, or overseas. The program offers the same courses with the same faculty no matter if students take the program online or on-campus. And the best part of the MBA program at Stevens is that students can be full-time, part-time and online while working or a combination of the two.

The Stevens Institute provides all the necessary tools and experiences so that even if MBAs decide to complete their coursework entirely online, they still receive the best experience. And for students that prefer on-campus learning, on occasion, the Stevens location is in near many corporate offices.

Rutgers Business School, Newark and New Brunswick

For students in the Part-Time MBA program at Rutgers, online classes add increased flexibility. While not all courses are offered online, there are select offerings that make things easier. And the good news is that the same faculty and staff that teach on-campus teach those online courses. And even better, the Rutgers part-time MBA was ranked 9th in the mid-Atlantic region by Bloomberg Businessweek.

And if you find that online isn’t for you, Rutgers also offers satellite class locations in Jersey City and Madison for your convenience. These locations bring the part-time MBA program closer to you. Courses are offered year round, in the evenings, and on weekends.

Lehigh University College of Business and Economics

The Flex MBA at Lehigh University is the perfect blend of online and on-campus learning. It was designed to address today’s business challenges conveniently and dynamically without sacrificing career opportunities or time. Students can choose between on-campus study and distance education. Even better, they can mix and match their learning modes as much or as little as they want. The Lehigh Flex MBA fits into a student’s lifestyle, not the other way around.

No matter if students attend classes full-time, part-time or online they take the same great classes with the same exceptional faculty. The Lehigh MBA is unique compared to other programs because students can seamlessly move from part-time to full-time, on-campus to online and vice versa. There’s no deadline to make the change and no limit to what students’ can do.

And the timeline for graduation is based on each student’s requirements. Some students finish in just under two years, while others take a full six years to graduate. It’s completely up to each individual.
