The Online Experience

Syracuse University’s online business students participate in live, face-to-face classes hosted via Zoom to promote collaboration and networking. All live classes are recorded for later review and include features such as breakout rooms for group projects, dark mode for night-time studying and adjustable video speed for reviewing lectures.

Self Paced Multi-Media Coursework

On their own schedules, students complete weekly coursework that features high-quality videos, interactive content, quizzes, guest lectures and case studies.

Flexibility for Online Students

Our online business programs are designed for working professionals who travel frequently or can’t commute to class. That’s why we offer classes six days a week, 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. ET, and all coursework and live classes are accessible via our full-service mobile app.

Online Student Experience Support 

Whitman's online MBA program is designed to help you build lasting relationships, learn from the same faculty who teach on campus and apply new skills in real time. Through live online classes offered at flexible times, you will network with diverse professionals while working to solve complex business challenges.

Outside of the classroom, you have access to a support team that includes a student success advisor, academic advisor and career coach — all with the goal of empowering your Orange business career.

See how we provide an engaging and supportive learning experience.

Online Business Curriculum

Syracuse University’s online graduate business programs feature the same curriculum content as the full-time, on-campus programs, and graduates earn the same Syracuse University diploma.

You can choose from our wide range of business electives to create your own individualized course of study or take your electives through other Syracuse University schools and colleges, such as the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications. This increased agility offers you the unique opportunity to take on coursework from other disciplines and build a more diverse network.
