Online learning is gaining serious momentum with over 6.3 million students enrolling in distance education annually in the US alone, according to the latest Distance Education Enrollment Report.

For those having to deal with busy lifestyles and hectic schedules, pursuing an online master’s program as a flexible alternative to traditional campus-based programs is often the only option for working professionals who are looking to boost their career prospects.

We’ve teamed up with ISDI, the world’s first digital business school, to find out more about the benefits of pursuing an online education.

Better higher education opportunities

With the freedom of the internet, comes the freedom of higher education opportunities for all. You can enroll in any program almost anywhere in the world thanks to modern technology.

One example of this, is the online-only master’s in internet business program (Online MIB) offered by ISDI. This program gives those with extensive work experience the chance to expand their comprehensive knowledge of business, all from the comfort of their own home.

Online learning is much better for 21st century businesses and can help you stay ahead of the professional competition. It can also help you earn another valuable qualification to add to your LinkedIn profile, so it’s definitely an option worth considering.

Complete convenience and full flexibility

Enrolling in an online course offers you complete convenience and full flexibility, not to mention the fact you can still work while you study, leaving you with more control over your lifestyle and more time for family and friends. It’s no wonder so many opt for this learning experience.

Students’ needs are very much at the heart of ISDI’s Online MIB program, offering you the freedom to learn at your own pace via its own virtual campus, including live classes, digital tool workshops and virtual sessions with experts from around the world.

Practical skills for the real world

Given the right learning environment with various activities such as digital workshops, team building exercises and online tutorials, the development of both hard and soft skills can help students reach a new level of academic and employment excellence. Not only will you be able to strengthen and expand your technical skillset, your ability to communicative effectively, develop logical arguments and be able to work well as an individual and with others, are just as well sought-after as hard skills.

Networking with professionals around the world

Nowadays, networking and building professional working relationships with course colleagues and professors for potential career opportunities are just as important as earning your degree.

As part of your professional development, the opportunity to network with individuals from all around the world is one of the main benefits of studying online. It creates a more immersive learning experience, so use it to your advantage in meetings and maintaining the best contacts.

Career opportunities galore

Whether it’s for a new career, climbing up the career ladder, or setting up your own business, an online MIB can open many doors as it provides you with the skills and expertise to further both your personal and professional development.

This should come as no surprise as 68 percent of ISDI’s Online MIB graduates have gone on to enjoy employment in digital professions with some of the world’s largest businesses and organizations, such as Amazon, Facebook and KPMG Digital, while a further 24 percent have gone onto set up their own internet business.

Continuous high quality support wherever you are

Innovative classroom technology means today’s students benefit from webinars, virtual learning environments and an assortment of interactive tools. With the Online MIB at ISID, you’ll have the advantage of 24/7 access to online materials, resources, test papers and more.
