Top X Reasons to Choose Montclair For Your MBA in Project Management

According to the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business’s (AACSB) 2021 Business School Data Guide, some 250,369 students were enrolled in MBA programs worldwide during the 2020-2021 academic year, with 155,996 enrolled in the United States. Of those enrolled in the United States:

  • 43,740 enrolled full-time
  • 82,322 enrolled part-time
  • 45,038 are online students

These numbers may seem surprising, but they go along with the landscape of the job market. The U.S. Census Bureau found that between 2011 and 2021, the percentage of people age 25 and older who had completed a bachelor’s degree or higher increased from 30.4% to 37.9%. As people become increasingly educated, companies (depending on the industry) are demanding a higher level of education from prospective employees. 

If you’re on the fence about enrolling in an MBA program, then now is the perfect time to make your decision. An online program, such as Montclair University State’s online MBA in Project Management program, provides the flexibility, support, and trusted reputation you need to succeed in your degree and future career endeavors.

And with the PMI reporting that “through 2027, the project management-oriented labor force in seven project-oriented sectors is expected to grow by 33 percent, or nearly 22 million new jobs,” project management is a career path you want to invest in.

Gain Top Flexibility of an Online Education

Since over one-third of those currently enrolled in an MBA program are online students, you can see the draw to online education is not uncommon. One of the advantages of Montclair’s fully online MBA in Project Management includes the maximum flexibility for parents, caregivers, and professionals working full-time who want to earn their graduate degree.

Our self-paced classes allow you to complete weekly lessons and assignments on your own schedule. All project management and core MBA classes are delivered via Canvas, an online learning management system, which hosts course materials and activities, tests/assessments, and communication tools to engage and collaborate with faculty and classmates.       

In the past, employers would be more hesitant of people with an online graduate degree. Not anymore! The growth of online undergraduate and graduate programs offered by accredited schools has steadily increased since 2010, and their graduates are seen as equal to those who graduate from traditional on-campus programs.

Feel Supported Throughout The Program

At Montclair State University, you won’t feel like just another number added to our enrollment total. We take each one of our graduate students’ success seriously.

So much so, we provide Student Success Coaches who are trained on how best to support working adult students. These professionals are available to you throughout the entire MBA experience to help you stay on track, because we know at times juggling rigorous MBA coursework and life will be difficult.  

Our online MBA in project management program allows you to form meaningful connections with professors and peers because of the ease of access to reach them and the size of our school in general. Since the size of graduate cohorts are kept small (compared to some larger schools with 1,000 plus) you’ll have the opportunity throughout the program to build strong relationships and a strong network.

When you graduate from Montclair State University, you’ll join our over 130,000 strong alumni network. These alumni are located globally in over 70 countries, as well as in all 50 states in the U.S. When you connect with fellow Red Hawks, there’s no telling where your career may land.
