Since I wanted to study while doing a full-time job, I choose Point Park University. The procedure for applying online course was easy, No application fee was charged. The course cost me a minimal amount. Besides this, I'll be receiving the same degree as the regular one.
The fully online bachelor's degree in business management offers a diverse curriculum developed by professionals for professionals, with an emphasis on applicable skills for your career. It focuses on a well-rounded education through the core curriculum. The major provides a broad knowledge base that helps us prepare for a variety of positions in the global marketplace.
I chose it because of its location in a Downtown urban area close to many entertainment venues which is where I hope to work after graduating. It one of the only schools in the country to offer the Sports, Arts and Entertainment Management degree and does a great job with doing so.
I think it should be more focused on what you need for your career instead of focus on core topics that aren't relevant to your career and take up extra time. I think you could easily finish a degree in two years if they removed all of the unnecessary curriculum.
