See what students say:

It’s easy to understand why many students clamor to earn an online MBA from University of Massachusetts. After all, the program is “cost-effective, highly regarded” and offers “the right mix of academic rigor and flexibility for working professionals.” And since UMass has been at the forefront of online education, “they have ironed out many of the issues that come with a purely online program.” Indeed, “professors are very comfortable with the online format” and students find that “the interfaces are intuitive and never hinder learning.” As one MBA candidate elaborates that the program "has outperformed even my best expectations," with the platform providing "multiple avenues to learn the content and engage with other students and faculty.” A fellow classmate concurs adding, noting "how much effort everyone put[s] in to connect and have discussions with others.” Of course, it also helps when your peers are “professional, motivated [and] hard-working.” Additionally, UMass MBAs benefit by having classmates from “diverse [professional backgrounds] who have significant work experience behind them allowing for interesting perspectives and engaging and informative discussions.”

Academically, UMass's online MBA provides “great business analytics” and "excellent" healthcare administration programs, and “ranks high for physician leaders,” while also providing solid degrees in entrepreneurship, finance, and marketing. Professors “do a great job of mapping out and organizing coursework so that you know what to expect, and everything runs on a predictable schedule.” If anything, students find their teachers to be more available, with multiple respondents pointing to how fast they are to "engage students on the discussion board," and praising how "professors are able to comment on real-life experience instead of just being taken straight from the book." When it comes to providing feedback, professors "go above and beyond" as they are "extremely friendly and genuinely want everyone to succeed." To that end, professors are “usually understanding that most of us work long hours and give enough time to work on projects and study for exams.”
