Accelerated Online MBA

Recently I have been undergoing chemotherapy. I am only one-fourth of the way through my treatment and cannot do much. I am basically bedridden. I work on my blogs, but the creative spark in me has been blunted by drugs and illness. I am so sick, but I am so bored.

I have toyed with the idea of attending college online for my MBA. I feel that if I was learning something new, I could engage my brain again. I think if I had something to occupy my mind, like learning, I would be able to overlook the pain. There are many online MBA programs but I would be interested in completing an MBA in Non-Profit Management.

Marylhurst’s accelerated online MBA coursework includes eight core courses, three concentration courses, and one Capstone course. That is only 12 hours, I believe, and I think I could finish that before I am well again. Is that too Type-A? Feeling that laying around healing is wasting time?

The cost is a little high: $444 tuition per credit hour, with a student services fee of $11 per credit hour, and a $50 application fee. That is total of $5510 for 12 hours. I already have high speed Internet, so I would be ready to go. It would be great to have an MBA and to volunteer for an environmental or animal rights foundation when I am well again.

Dreams are sustaining me now. This is just the latest. Wish me luck.

I’m sorry to hear you are ill. I hope you’ll be better sooner. An online MBA program is more flexible than any other because you can customize your class schedule. Distance-learning programs do not require face-to-face interviews, but other application procedures are very similar to traditional MBA programs.
