How to Make the Most of Your Online MBA Experience

No matter where you are in your online MBA journey, put these tips into practice to ensure your success.

You’ve heard the saying, “work smarter, not harder.” So to help in that endeavor, we turned to our JWMI alumni and asked them to share the best online MBA advice for currently enrolled students.

Top Online MBA Advice for JWMI Students

Master Time Management

“While the program is an intense learning experience, with planning & self-organization, you can achieve your dream of being a self-confident MBA graduate. Think ahead and make use of advanced Blackboard access to avoid last-minute submissions. Also, concentrate on learning each concept in-depth, rather than just completing the discussion questions or assignments. I promise that you will enjoy every bit of your online learning experience at the Jack Welch MBA program.”
Raj Kyadiggeri, Director of End User Services, Cetera Financial Group

Be an Active Participant

“My advice is simple, be engaged in your discussions, take the time to read and watch all the materials, don’t be afraid to challenge your classmates to think bigger and broader, and get ready to push yourself beyond what you ever thought was possible!”
Angela Stitcher, Business Development Manager, AngioDynamics

Apply What Your Learn

“JWMI’s mantra of “Learn it on Monday. Apply it on Tuesday.” is verifiable. In one instance, I met with executives in my office and provided information based on research I had done just a few days earlier as part of a JWMI assignment. This information changed the direction of the proposed action plan and saved the company a large sum of money. The ability to make an immediate impact is real and helped me excel in my career.”
Chris Moeller, Program Manager, Lockheed Martin


“CELEBRATE your WINS along the way—soak them up, eat them for breakfast, rinse-and-repeat. There are going to be times when you want to give up or think that you cannot finish. Trust me, you can. It is going to be one of the hardest and most challenging things you will ever do, but the feeling of personal accomplishment at the end of the program is immeasurable.”
Kevin Blanchard, Chief Information Officer at SVP Worldwide
