Following the trend of growing offerings in online education, many high-quality accredited business schools offer flexible and easy-to-access distance learning opportunities all over the United States for prospective MBA students. Some distance-based schools have no on-campus requirements (e.g., Boise State). Other online or hybrid programs have in-person requirements for interviews, orientations, immersion experiences, or capstone projects. It should also be noted that some online programs are only available to students living in the same state as the university.

For students interested in online MBA programs located outside of their state of residence, it is crucial to check out the school’s “state authorization” status, which typically is available on program websites (e.g., Arizona State University). For schools that do not have this information, students are encouraged to contact program administrators to ensure eligibility.
