A dependable itinerary, so you can plan your course

The business online degree program has a predictable, year-round schedule that is set at the same time throughout the year allowing you to plan your schedule months in advance. Course semesters are typically 15-weeks long, but some are shorter at either 4 or 8 weeks.  Check out our two-year degree completion schedule. It offers our students a clear path to graduation.

Online to fit your busy schedule

The majority of our online courses are delivered asynchronously. This means that you can review course materials and interact with instructors and other students when it works for you. Students enrolled in UMSL Business online courses are expected to participate and fully engage in all academically related activities. Examples of these activities include making submissions to online discussion boards, communicating within the class forums, reviewing prepared instructor lecture videos, submitting assignments and completing exams and quizzes.

Flexible, because there's more than one way to get there

You can earn your bachelor’s degree in business administration by taking courses fully or partially online. Our program offers flexibility, accessibility and a personalized education. For those seeking to expedite their degree completion, business school advisers will create customized schedules to include some face-to-face, weekend and shorter courses. Other students who want to specialize in one of our academic fields (marketing, management, accounting, finance, international business or logistics/operations management) can attend select courses on campus to complete the requirements. You may also want to utilize our internship program and get valuable work experience from companies such as Boeing or Scottrade.

Going online doesn’t mean going it alone

In order to enhance the online educational experience, students can utilize the college’s online support services including online program mentors, off-site testing centers, technical support, Net Tutor and other instructional support.
