8 reasons why you should get a Master of International Business online

If you’re looking to stand out from the crowd as you’re applying for jobs, a specialized master’s degree is a great way to give your resume and skill set a boost. A Master of International Business (MIB) from the University of Florida is the perfect degree for those who have a business major or minor and want to further their understanding of global business.

If you don’t have a business background but want to build business expertise, you can still pursue a degree online in the Master of Science in Management (MSM) program. The UF MSM Online program is specifically designed for those without a business background.

The new Master of International Business Online program makes gaining a global perspective easier than ever. With no required campus visits, you can take classes from anywhere in the world.

Boosting your resume and international business skills without having to come to campus aren’t the only advantages of the UF MIB Online program. Check out the eight other reasons why you should consider earning your Master of International Business online.

  1. Flexibility

Earning your degree has never been easier when you take your studies online. While the MIB Online program is designed to be completed within one year, you can modify your course schedule to take fewer classes within a semester and complete the program over a longer period of time.

  1. No work experience required

While some graduate programs require you to have work experience before pursuing a degree, with the UF MIB Online program, it’s not something you need to have on your resume to apply.

The MIB program is designed for students without prior professional work experience, which allows you to begin your master’s degree soon after you earn your bachelor’s degree. You don’t have to wait until you gain work experience to begin your studies.

  1. Real-world learning opportunities

While the majority of the program courses are taught online, a required Global Immersion Experience brings the classroom to life through a week-long international study trip.

You not only have the opportunity to meet your classmates in person, but also get a hands-on learning experience in countries in Latin America, Europe and Asia.

Online MIB students also have the option to study abroad at one of our foreign partner schools.

  1. Learn from the best

The same world-class faculty that teach as part of the on-campus MIB program lead the classes for the Online program. Their classes are specifically designed for online students using techniques developed through continued use of emerging technology.

  1. Access to on-campus activities

Earning your degree online doesn’t mean you have limited connections to the UF campus. In the MIB Online program, you are welcome to attend career fairs, networking events and other campus events.

  1. Experienced career coaches

An additional campus resource students in the MIB Online program have access to is the support of career coaches in Warrington’s Business Career Services office. The Business Career Services team relies on a strategic approach and has a successful track record preparing students during the job search.

  1. Combined-degree options

If you’re already a student at UF, you can combine your studies, and earn your bachelor’s and master’s degree faster. Why not take the opportunity to boost your knowledge and resume while also saving time and money?

  1. Warrington is a pioneer in online education

The Warrington College of Business has been in the online education space for two decades. It launched its Online MBA program in 1999 and continues to be ranked as one of the top programs in the world.

The same technology that makes the UF MBA Online program one of the most respected in the industry is the foundation of the MIB Online program.
