When I think about the Online MBA, I think about flexibility, value, and people. I think about value in terms of how our programs are ranked versus how much they cost for tuition. Our total program costs are about $34,000 in tuition for the Online MBA. According to early data that we have, the average salary for our incoming online students is roughly $65,000 per year. When they leave the program, according to exit survey, their salary is about $92,000 a year for an almost instant ROI.
Being able to have the flexibility to watch lectures and do the assignments and do my homework and study, you know, at my leisure whenever was convenient for me was very key. And Auburn provided the opportunity for me to be able to do that. Of course, also, the professors have been great at responding to any questions or helping the online students, but just having fellow classmates that you can reach out to has been extremely helpful.
I've got to juggle family, I've got to juggle my personal life. I've got to juggle my career ambitions, but you'll find time to do it. It's important. You'll see the value. You'll understand why you're doing it as soon as you get started with it. It's absolutely worth the time.
