​​Is Online Learning Right For Me?

​​​Despite the advantages available to students in an online-learning program, there are also significant demands.  The pace of this program is much faster than that of the on​site program.  Moreover, students participating in the online program must also learn to manage their time and to take initiative when help is needed.

​​​​Orientation Course​

Students who have completed the application process and been accepted into the Online Human Resource Management ​program will be required to successfully complete a mandatory Online Orientation Course.
