Online MBA Learning Experience

Our Online MBA will offer you a rich and engaging experience that aligns with our on-campus MBA program. And because our fully online program is asynchronous, you will have the flexibility to complete your course assignments and activities at the time and place that’s best for you.

For example, discussion board question responses can be posted and assignments submitted at a time that is convenient (as long as the activity is completed by the stated due date).

One-on-one access to your faculty is a critical part of the program. Your professors will be available for meetings in-person, or by phone or streaming video. Each semester, your professors will participate in discussion boards, interact with teams and provide feedback on all assignments.

Our full-time faculty and adjunct professors (many of whom are executives with leading area firms) incorporate business problems, cases and scenarios into class. Over the course of your studies, peer-to-peer and faculty interactions will include such activities as:

  • Team projects
  • Presentations
  • Case analyses
  • Professional internships (for interested students)

A dedicated graduate academic coordinator will assist you with all scheduling and registration needs, as well as help you plan your coursework and maintain academic progress based on your goals.

And as a Rider student, you will also have full access to services and resources of the University, including the Office of Career Services and University Library, both of which have online accessibility.

Technical Highlights

  • Rider’s Online MBA learning platform is Canvas, and all course materials are accessible via computers, tablets and mobile devices (PC and Mac).
  • Course design is based on the nationally recognized principles of Quality Matters, which promotes best practice quality standards and procedures.
  • Through our virtual desktop, you will also have access to any special software required.
