Employers want managers they can trust to make informed decisions about their department, taking into consideration how these decisions will impact all other areas of the company.

Dependability and leadership

The executive management team is busy tackling inter-departmental and big picture issues, and they need to know that department heads are able to act in the best interest of the organization and lead their department effectively–without being closely supervised. Therefore, employers seek managers who are:

  • strong leaders
  • critical thinkers
  • problem solvers
  • and knowledgeable in their sector (such as healthcare, IT, marketing, human resources or accounting).

Executives also want managers who are able to see the organization as a whole, and how their department works with all others to provide a valuable product or service to consumers.

Practical knowledge

Work experience is certainly valued by employers; it reflects that the manager has practical knowledge of the field. Industry credentials (when available) validate the manager’s knowledge, and professional organization membership demonstrates a commitment to the industry and awareness of current trends.

Education

A formal education is what binds the manager’s experience and professional affiliations together. It is through earning a post-graduate degree that a professional achieves the level of critical thinking required to combine their academic knowledge, past experience and industry networks/resources in order to apply them to the situation at hand.

Results

Once this critical-thinking process and application takes place, an MBA degree program specifically teaches the professional how the solution to one situation will affect the other operations of the business. With the addition of a management specialty, the employer recognizes the professional is not only an expert in the topic, but also has the propensity to lead, manage and motivate other employees in the organization. This additional skill set is highly desirable because it allows executives to delegate greater responsibility to that individual, further allowing the executive to focus on the most imperative and broad-spectrum concerns.

Course structure

The Herzing University Online MBA degree programs were designed with the busy adult in mind. The school year has three semesters, and each semester is comprised of two 7 ½-week terms. Students have new classes every eight weeks, separated by either a long weekend or the winter or summer break.

Program length

Typically, graduate students can choose to take approximately one class at a time and complete their program in 2 years, or take approximately two courses at a time and finish in 1 year. In addition, students may adjust their schedules as other responsibilities permit, taking a lighter course load some terms and a heavier load in others.

Attendance

Online students should expect to spend a minimum of six (6) hours per week (over a 7½-week period) in their studies for each semester credit hour enrolled. This would include reading, researching, and writing papers, doing projects, completing exercises, studying, and reflecting on the course material as well as the time spent on the computer participating in discussion threads, reviewing online course materials, taking tests, and uploading/ downloading materials. The time devoted to classes scheduled for other than 7½-week periods would adjust proportionately.

Coursework

Students will be required to participate in some group projects, but most assignments are completed on an individual basis. Homework assignments are posted at the beginning of the week and must be completed and submitted by the due date. Typical assignments include a discussion question or two based on the lecture and reading due by mid-week (with replies and comments on classmates’ posts by the end of the week), and a written assignment or test due at the end of the week.

Depending on the course, students may be required to write essays, complete term projects, and/or take exams. Instructional materials differ for each course but often include electronic textbooks, website links, voice-over PowerPoint lectures, journal articles, case studies, and interviews.

Faculty availability

Instructors are available by internal message and telephone. Faculty can be reached for immediate answers during their posted office hours and will respond within 36 hours to any questions received outside of those hours.

Tutoring

Because class sizes are kept small, your instructor is also your tutor. Students and instructors can interact in a chat-like manner that allows for real-time discussion and example exercises. If the instructor’s posted office hours conflict with a student’s schedule, special appointments can be made.

Get started on your master’s degree as an undergraduate!

Students enrolled in a Herzing University bachelor’s degree program who are interested in pursuing a master’s degree can save time and money with the Herzing University MBA!

      • Dual Enrollment – This program allows current bachelor’s degree students the opportunity to exchange four business (BU) or open elective courses for four MBA courses during their senior year.
      • Any MBA Concentration – Those students enrolled in a Herzing University business or management-oriented bachelor’s degree program may enroll in any of the MBA concentrations upon graduation (provided they have successfully met the GPA requirement in their MBA courses while in the Dual Enrollment program and are not applying under "Conditional Acceptance" due to a GPA that falls under the minimum).

Important facts to consider

While this can be great time and money-saver, there are some important facts to consider before applying for the Dual Enrollment program.

        • You must maintain a 3.0 cumulative GPA as a graduate student if admitted into an MBA program upon graduation, and the grades in these classes will count toward that GPA.
        • Graduate-level courses may be more demanding than the undergraduate courses you are used to. Evaluate your schedule and determine if you have additional time and energy to devote to more advanced studies.
        • Graduate courses taken by Dual Enrollment participants will be charged at the undergraduate tuition rate.
        • Your cumulative GPA must be 2.7 or higher at the time you begin the graduate-level course(s).
        • There are a limited number of openings in the graduate courses for Dual Enrollment students, and not all who apply will be selected.
