When you need the ultimate in flexibility for your MBA degree, then you want an online MBA. Online courses allow you to complete your education from anywhere in the world. That means that if you have to head out of town for work, you don’t have to stop your MBA. Or if you want to attend an MBA Program that’s not near your home or office, an online MBA is the perfect option.
And if you’re not sure about completing your entire MBA online, there are many flex/hybrid MBA options. These MBAs allow students to spend a minimum amount of time on campus—typically about one weekend a month of four days a quarter—while the rest of the program is delivered in an online format. Hybrid MBAs offer the most flexibility alongside the best learning experience.
So, what if you’re interested in an hybrid or online MBA in Los Angeles? Do you have any options? Yes! You have quite a few, though most are hybrid MBA options.

Anderson School of Management – UCLA
The FEMBA Flex MBA at the Anderson School of Management is ideal for full-time employees because of its hybrid format. Its innovative format offers hybrid scheduling that allows students to blend online and on-campus learning.

Between those visits, all learning takes place online at the MBA’s convenience. The program is specially made for students living outside of LA or for those students who can’t afford to take any time off work. Check out the FEMBA website to learn more.
