King University News :: Online Degrees Popular Option for Working Professionals

Beginning in the summer of 2009, King College offered a few classes in an online format.  Increasing popularity of online programs led to an expansion of the program.  In May 2011, King began offering what would be the first of many online degree programs.  In just over a year, King has expanded its online degree programs from the Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) and Master of Business Administration (MBA) to a total of eight programs. 

King College online degree programs allow working professionals, while maintaining a full-time job and juggling other commitments, to earn their degree.  Distance learners can log into their courses anytime, anywhere to complete assignments, projects, and tests. The online learning platform allows students to choose their class time according to their busy schedules.

April Carter first received her BBA degree in 2010 through King’s GPS program and loved the program so much so that she enrolled in the new online MBA program, with an expected graduation date in fall 2012.  “The online program gave me the opportunity to work on my assignments at my own pace.  Knowing what is expected of you beforehand allows you to be able to work school around other events in your life. Being able to access my class online from anywhere ensures that I don’t get behind on class assignments; I am still am able to meet other obligations.”

Although accelerated, online courses mirror their counterpart taught in a traditional format on site. The fast-tracked format allows students to earn their degree faster while acquiring a quality education.  King guarantees the quality of its online curriculum to ensure graduates are prepared with the latest industry knowledge and skill sets enabling them to compete in an aggressive job market and succeed in advanced careers.  

“I am very fortunate to be able to obtain my master’s degree at a young age,” continued Carter.  “This program has given me the tools needed to perform my current job exceedingly well.  It will also prepare me for future career opportunities. 

Students have the option to choose from an Associate of Arts, BBA, Bachelor of Science in Communication, Bachelor of Science in Psychology , Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice, Bachelor of Information Technology , Bachelor of Science in Nursing for Registered Nurses , and MBA.
