Why Earn a Ecommerce Degree Online?

Online learning is the single fastest growing segment in higher education for a number of reasons.  To stay ahead of this trend, colleges across the country are rapidly creating valuable online degree programs to provide value to students and employers in all sectors of the economy.   To simplify this rapidly evolving learning modality, you can easily locate online degrees by using our proprietary online matching portal.  Our search functions allow students to parse programs by degree type, location, school size, and degree level.

Based on student feedback and interviews with colleges around the country, we have assembled a list to help you make sense of online learning.  We have culled the list to the top 6 reasons to consider earning an online degree in ecommerce that include:

  1. Cost Savings – The overall costs associated with earning an electronic commerce degree online will likely be less than classroom-based degrees. Consider the following: a) online learning modalities provide you with the means to work while earning a degree, saving substantive money in lost wages, b) students enrolled in an online college do not live on-campus saving on campus-based costs like parking, transportation, room and board, and c) online students that are enrolled with an accredited school can qualify for federal financial aid.  When rolling the potential cost savings into the mix, earning a college degree online may be an attractive alternative.
  2. Ease of Use – Distance learning allows students to jump online any day, any time. With fewer physical restrictions placed on each student, a qualified student living in NYC can attend USC.  Traditional classroom arrangements require students to physically be present at the same time with the same group of students, which certainly has value in a learning community.  However, it is no longer the only way students learn and not the only way schools offer quality degree programs.
  3. Accreditation – Top colleges and universities earn and retain their accreditation from national and/or regional entities.  Accrediting agencies authorized third-parties recognized by the U.S. Department of Education that audit schools.  An audit may include curriculum, processes, and procedures to arrive at a standard of quality.  Accredited colleges are key to meeting state licensing and employment thresholds.
  4. Curriculum – Online degrees often parallel campus-based degree programs.  Similar examinations, tests, quizzes, projects, and presentations keep students active & engaged while growing their knowledge base.   From small community colleges to massive public universities and from certificate programs through doctorate degrees, higher education is taking online learning quite serious investing tens of millions of dollars in programs each year.
  5. Flexible Scheduling – By matriculating in an online degree program from a college or university, you will be able to utilize your time as you see fit. Being at work when you need to and online learning as your priorities shift.  In a real sense, school can fit your schedule and not vice versa.  This shift is a seismic shift in an industry like higher education where change may not seem to happen with great rapidity.
  6. Completion Time – Online degrees in ecommerce may be designed to be self-paced, thus allowing you to ascertain how much time to invest in your degree. An additional benefit worth noting is that the traditional school year may not apply.  Specifically, many schools start classes every few weeks instead of the strict school year cycle for online learners.
