Engaging Online

As an online MBA student, you have access to all of the resources provided on our Amherst campus. Academic advisors and career coaches are readily available to you by phone, zoom or email. Our courses and programming offer a range of ways to engage with our outstanding faculty and other students through online, real-time office hours and through optional, live online class meetings.  Small class sizes and active group discussions enable you to connect with classmates and develop relationships that persist beyond your degree.

For the past 2.5 years, I have spent a great deal of time reading, reviewing, testing and interacting online with some of the brightest, most diverse group of colleagues I have ever experienced. Our classes had physicians, engineers, company presidents, accountants and members of all branches of the military. The Isenberg experience was both challenging and enriching.
