四個方向,幫助你申請理想遠距教學碩士
遠距教學碩士學位近年來有成長的趨勢,不過重點必須是要花時間來尋找合適的學校。

近年來遠距教學碩士學位非常的熱門,如果你現在正在考慮要申請遠距教學碩士學位,必須要花些時間來確定哪個課程是最適合您的,以免屆時你申請到學校卻有種種問題出現,如此一來你花金錢和時間都是白費了!也因此在網路上找到ㄧ個符合官方認可的MBA課程及學位,且又可以配合你可以上課的時間和符合你所能支付的費用許可上,種種考慮和選擇的原因,必須要花費一番功夫來做尋找和前置功課。下面提供4個方法,希望能夠幫助你申請學校:
1. 已經確定遠距離碩士學位是你最好的選擇。
你確定你去唸書對這個家是有幫助?
依據你上班和在家的時間安排上,確定你沒辦法上普通的MBA課程,或者是在週末和晚上進行進修?
你能夠在教授的指導下完成學業並拿到學位?
若是以上的問題只要你有1個到三個的肯定回答,那麼遠距離碩士學位可能就是你目前最好的選擇。遠距離碩士教育是一個越來越熱門的上課方式,且也被許多企業接受,會不會因此影響了正統的MBA課程及學位呢?專家們指出,這兩者並不會衝突,畢竟傳統的MBA碩士學位上的課程時數比起遠距離碩士來得多了。
學校的招生處員Stacy Blackman說:『線上課程是非常方便的。』
『但是,在時間上來說,線上課程傾向於較少且健全的課程內容。』

2. 找尋有得到官方認可的線上MBA課程
在尋找線上MBA課程必須要確認是否有官方認證的證明。
根據Grand Canyon University Ken Blanchard College of Business院長W. Kevin Barksdale指出有兩項官方認證可供依據。
這兩項認證分別為,Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP)、Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB)。

3. 檢查貸款利率
根據Brandman University校長Gary Brahm指出,貸款利率和學生償還的速度,跟學生畢業後成功的找到ㄧ個很適合且高薪的職務,對於他們償還畢業前在學校的學費貸款,他們相對會還款較快。
高失業率表示了,大學畢業生在學校畢業後無法如預期中順利找到自己理想的工作。
找到ㄧ個MBA遠程教育計畫和必須注意你自己的財務底限是同樣重要的。
此外,學生必須要關心的不只是過程,還必須自問:這就是我想要的學位?

4. 學校課程是否有彈性
若是你突然要去出差或是去外地,無法上課,那麼學校是不是可以讓你彈性排課?
也因此,你必須找一個線上MBA課程能夠去滿足你的各種需求。
有些學校可能會提供你可以一學期可以有幾次這樣彈性機會。『也因此你必須要了解你有哪些課程是必修,哪些課程是可以等到你有空時再去選修的。』Barksdale說道。
你必須問問自己:假如當你下次修課時,你必須花八個星期去將課程進度追回,你追的回來嗎?

4 Tips to Picking Your Ideal Online M.B.A.
As online M.B.A. offerings grow, it's important to take the time to find the best fit.
If you're considering an online M.B.A., it's important to take the time to determine which program best fits your needs. Given the recent explosion of M.B.A. distance learning, finding an accredited online M.B.A. program that can accommodate your schedule and financial constraints is no simple task. Use these four tips to get a head start:


1. Decide if an online M.B.A. is your best option. Are you able to be productive at home? Can you complete assignments without a professor breathing down your neck? Based on your work or family schedule, is it simply not feasible for you to attend classes at a traditional M.B.A. program, even at nights or on weekends? If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, then an online M.B.A. might be the best option. M.B.A. distance learning is a growing trend and online degrees are increasingly accepted by employers, though experts note they still hold less clout than their traditional counterparts because they've only been in existence for a fraction of the time that traditional M.B.A.'s have. "Online programs are extremely convenient," says Stacy Blackman, author and business school admissions consultant. "[But], at this point in time, online programs tend to be less well regarded and are not as strong résumé builders."

2. Get an accredited online M.B.A. It's imperative that the institution you choose be properly accredited. According to W. Kevin Barksdale, dean of the Grand Canyon University Ken Blanchard College of Business, there are two major accreditations to look for. Schools should be accredited by one or both of the Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) and the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). Accreditation on a regional basis is integral as well, experts say. "The most important accreditation is regional accreditation," says Michael Nastanski, dean of the school of business at St. Leo University, which has an online M.B.A. program. "The regional bodies establish program and learning outcome criteria that are applied across all business schools in their region."

3. Check the loan default rate. According to Gary Brahm, chancellor of Brandman University, part of the West Coast's Chapman University System, the loan default rate—the rate at which students repay their loan debt—is an indicator of the students' success in finding an adequate-paying position after graduation relative to the school's tuition costs and of their ability to find work at all. A high default rate indicates that graduates couldn't land jobs or the school outpriced the typical jobs its graduates land. You can obtain this information on a school-by-school basis from the Department of Education. Finding an M.B.A. distance learning program that cares more about your education than its bottom line is critical. "[For-profit schools] come under fire sometimes," says Barksdale. "It's not just about collecting the money, but can we prepare you? Students need to look at a program and [ask themselves] 'Do they sound like they care about what I'm going to do with this degree?'"

4. Find a school that is flexible. If you think you may ever need to put your studies on hold for several weeks or months, it's important to find an online M.B.A. program that will accommodate your schedule. Some schools might only offer some classes a few times a year, while others may have two or more start dates a month for each class. "It's important to know how many courses are required to complete the program and how frequently are they available," says Barksdale. "[Ask yourself:] 'If I need to take eight weeks off, when is the next time I can slide back in?' Just like in the 'ground' programs, in online programs, that will vary program to program. People's needs change."
