THIS TIME, SCHOOL IS DIFFERENT
Whether you call it flexible distance learning, getting an online degree, attending an online university, or simply learning when and how you want to, it all adds up to the freedom and flexibility to fit earning a degree into your busy life.
ONLINE LEARNING AT YOUR PACE
Strayer University offered its first online courses in 1996. In more than two decades since, we’ve continually advanced the art and science of distance learning with a single goal in mind—to create a better student experience. Freed from the constraints of a classroom schedule, you get a practical path to acquiring the real-world skills needed to advance your career with the added convenience of being able to fit class work into your busy schedule at the very times when you’ll be at your best.
CAMPUS LEARNING, TOO
Many of our degrees offer the option of classroom courses in addition to your online experience. Classes are held in the evenings, some even on weekends, and are taught by faculty with real-world experience. Even if you take all your courses online, you may want to take advantage of the campus nearest you to meet with faculty, advisors, or your personal success coach, or simply to have a quiet place to study.
BRINGING ALL YOUR SENSES TO LEARNING ONLINE
Our Strayer Studios initiative is pioneering new ways to learn online. Far more than a recording of a standard lecture, these interactive courses encourage discussion and greater participation. The mandate of the Strayer Studios team is to help break down complex subjects into something far more memorable than facts and processes—stories. We then make those stories an exciting part of an online learning program that leads to a degree.
You’ll read, you’ll watch, you’ll listen—and you’ll want to respond. It is the evolution of learning as a natural response to the vast technological changes we’re all using every single day. Why not use them to advance your skills and prospects?
EARN YOUR MBA AT YOUR OWN PACE
Online learning means you’re in control of your workload. You can take on campus classes as well, or choose the Jack Welch Management Institute EMBA taken entirely online. Whatever you choose, you get all the advantages of the Strayer reputation.
CLASSROOM OPPORTUNITIES, TOO
Strayer University is here to help working adults advance their careers in the most practical, beneficial way possible. That means offering you a range of learning experiences that include on campus classes as well as online learning. Many of our classes in our graduate degree curriculums may be taken on campus, always offered in the evenings, or sometimes on the weekends to fit your schedule.
OPEN MORE DOORS
It used to be that hard work and a little know-how could get you anywhere. The reality is that for many of today’s management jobs, an undergraduate degree is a must-have. Strayer’s online undergraduate degrees equip you with the skills and the knowledge you’ll need to advance in your career. Earn them online, on campus, or a combination of both, with your personal success coach at your side all along the way.
