What will I gain?

Studies have shown learning outcomes are equal or superior online

According to studies over the past decade conducted by Allen & Seaman (2016), 71.4% of educators have found that learning outcomes are equal or superior online. Kwolaski, Dolph, & Young (2014) also found that the most important motivating factors for choosing online education are convenience and flexibility, both of which are elements that are at the very core of all UFred education.

Online studies can help develop soft-skills, such as delivering presentations

In a study by Butz & Askim-Lovseth (2015) comparing face-to-face and online MBA students, results showed that online and face-to-face students performed equally. Results also demonstrated that online international students actually performed better in presentation skills, which the authors suggest relates to the removal of typical face-to-face pressures that cause students stress.

Online learners repeatedly show strong academic performance

In a large study conducted by Cavanaugh & Jacquemin (2015) of more than 5000 courses and 100 instructors, results showed that online learners had a less than 0.07% GPA difference than those studying face-to-face, which is not considered to be statistically significant, and demonstrates the success of online learners.
