U of R School of Business taps its experience to offer additional online courses during COVID-19 outbreak

We are living in an unprecedented time as we work through the COVID-19 outbreak. For the University of Redlands School of Business, this has meant adjusting its program offerings to ensure that students can begin or continue to pursue their business degrees in the safest possible manner.

Specifically, in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, the School of Business has moved all of its undergraduate and graduate classes typically held at our eight campuses to online formats in order to practice safe social distancing and adhere to the California-wide “stay at home” executive order.

“Online education is not new to the School of Business,” says Senecal Endowed Dean Tom Horan. “We have successfully educated students for several years with our online MBA. Now we are offering online courses for our undergraduate and graduate courses that would have been held on the ground. To do so, we are utilizing our robust online platform that features a range of collaboration tools, information-sharing features, and live/pre-recorded lectures that allow for students to learn from the comfort and safety of their homes.

Horan added, “Although we understand this unusual time has created anxiety for us all, we also think it might be a unique time for professionals to advance their business knowledge, skills, and career trajectory. We are committed to offering our educational programs in an uninterrupted manner and providing the necessary student support to ensure that the online experience is very positive.” 

The U of R School of Business degree programs include a Master of Business Administration, Master of Science in Organizational Leadership, and Bachelor of Science in Business.

Students who enter a program now can get a jumpstart on their future earning power and career mobility within the comfort and safety of their homes, and then be able to transition to on-ground courses once our state and national authorities advise that it is safe to do so.

The application process is easy. Learn more about the degree programs, courses, application process, tuition fees, and more.
