If you are debating about going back to school online, it is important to understand what to expect. Online learning is here to stay and will likely become part of the normal educational progression for the tech-savvy students of tomorrow. For professionals with financial and family obligations, online or distance education is often the only option. However, if you have not taken an online class (or don’t love spending your days and nights on the computer) it can be daunting.
Whether you are pursuing a new career path in business or are a newly minted college graduate looking to break into your dream career in a multinational corporation, you will likely consider graduate school as a way to reach your goal.
If you are like many early- or mid-career professionals, you have contemplated earning an advanced degree. The Master of Jurisprudence (MJ), also known as a Master of Legal Studies (MLS) or Juris Master (JM), is an increasingly popular option and will provide you with the working knowledge of the law that you need to progress in your career and industry. If your long-term goal does not include becoming an attorney but does require you to get a master’s degree, this is a fantastic option.
