The Online Business Administration program is perfect for students with family obligations, work schedules, or a location that makes it difficult to attend traditional classes on campus. Online classes will allow you to learn the same competencies as a traditional class from the comfort and convenience of your home. You will need a compatible computer, high speed internet, time management and organizational skills, self motivation and the ability to read and follow directions to meet the deadlines.

No face to face time is included in an online program; however your instructors will be available to assist you through a variety of technologies, including e-mail. The online program can be completed in two years by taking classes that may be accelerated over an 8 week period or run the full semester.

Online degrees at Southeast Tech are taught by Southeast Tech faculty who have been specially trained in online teaching methods. All coursework is completed online through a special portal just for online students. Program curriculum is reviewed annually by local industry professionals through Advisory Committees specific to each degree, to ensure that you will receive the freshest knowledge possible.
