"For me, online is really the only viable option, and it worked out very well. I looked at several schools. With Southeastern Oklahoma, the flexibility is really great and the price is really good. I never had to be somewhere at any certain time."
—Michael Green, MBA in Entrepreneurship online
"[The finance courses were] the most difficult since I really had no financial background. I was learning stuff constantly. There was a lot of novelty to it. It was difficult, for sure, but I really liked it because it wasn't my background."
—Tim Harris, MBA in Finance online
"Undoubtedly, many employers appreciate and understand the value of getting a master's degree — especially an MBA."
—Mohamed Abdellatif, MBA in Marketing online
"I'm taking two courses at a time. The flexibility and the fact it's totally an online program means I can take care of my coursework wherever I may be."
—Bob Compton, MBA in Finance online
"I was able to immediately put some of the education to work as I was doing the classes in real time. That was enjoyable for me."
—Scott Hampton, MBA in Management online
"I'm Native American myself. I know what the tribe has taught me since I've been here, but I don't know much beyond that. I wanted to know more, like where we come from, sovereignty and all it encompasses. That's really one of the biggest factors—that and cost. Cost is pretty hard to beat when it comes to Southeastern Oklahoma."
—Dr. Zach F. Williams, MBA in Native American Leadership online
"We've talked about a lot of people-management topics that I've used since in different classes, like Supervisory Management."
—Scott Phelps, MBA in Human Resources online
"It's good to be a role model for your children and say, 'You can get a degree at any age. You can go back to school and do it anytime. It doesn't matter how old you are. You should never stop learning. You should continually be trying to make yourself better.'"
—Kristi Radebaugh, MBA in Management online
"You're not going to find a better value for the amount of education and what comes with the degree itself—that is a huge, huge factor. Being in an AACSB-accredited university is a very positive thing, and getting a degree for that much, for less than $12,000, is crazy."
—Ahmad El-Katib, MBA online
"If you just work hard, you can achieve anything. I just don't want anybody to hold back because they don't think they're capable of making it through. I worked as a graduate assistant, I worked at the bank, and I even did a side job. I did three jobs while I was going to school getting my MBA."
—Sarah Roberts, MBA in Management online
"I was working full-time on my dad's ranch; I was an undergrad student and taking online MBA classes; I was working as a graduate assistant for 20 hours a week. I learned pretty quickly how to manage time." Now, at age 23, Emily is an MBA graduate and a small business owner.
—Emily Robinson, MBA in Entrepreneurship online
"I always wanted to earn an MBA -- even after I finished my undergrad. You've got to have a passion when you're going to school to push yourself through it. You've got to find something that is going to push you until the end that you actually want."
—Chauncey Ward, MBA in Entrepreneurship online
"The classes that required the most writing … I dreaded them at the time, but they improved my writing skills. I'm just so thankful now that Dr. C.W. Von Bergen and Dr. Martin Bressler just really pushed and encouraged me, as well. That was pivotal for me, as far as my writing."
—Julia Boyd, MBA in Management online
"Just be diligent and disciplined. That's what you've got to do. It's online, so if you don't do it, it won't get done. You've got to have a significant other or loved one in your life who will get behind you and push you. And you've got to have the right instructors. At Southeastern, I never had a bad instructor. Not one."
—Ronnie Coppedge, MBA in Management online
