Q: Is the cost of books included in tuition?
A: Yes. Not only is UNOH’s online MBA program exceptionally affordable, but the costs you incur are even less, as we include the cost of textbooks.
Q: How often do I need to log in to my course each week?
A: It is recommended that you log in to your online classroom on a daily basis. At a minimum, you should log in to your online classroom at least three times per week. If you do not, you risk falling behind.
Q: Do I have to log in at specific times of the day?
A: No. The coursework at University of Northwestern Ohio is 100% asynchronous, meaning that there are no set meeting times unless special arrangements are made with the instructor.
Q: What is the lecture format?
A: There are 10 modules (and 8 modules during summer quarter) with homework, drop boxes, and discussion boards. Many courses have video or audio components. All courses utilize the discussion boards.
Q: Are there group projects involved in the online programs?
A: Yes. In some courses, group projects are required and full details will be made available by your course instructor.
Q: Will I be required to complete a thesis at the end of my program?
A: No. UNOH does not currently require the completion of a thesis at the end of the MBA program, but all students are required to take MBA 690 – Management Capstone.
Q: Why doesn’t UNOH require that I take the GMAT exam to be admitted to the Online MBA program?
A: UNOH chooses not to use this academic measure to exclude individuals who have a wealth of real world business experience and enormous potential for program success.
