Sunday is Mother’s Day. If you haven’t bought your flowers yet, hurry out to get them now.

If you’re being celebrated as Mom today, Spring Arbor University would like to thank you for all you do and let you know about our online programs that are perfect for busy working and stay-at-home moms.

Convenient and flexible for even the busiest of moms

As a student of one of the online programs below, you can study before the children wake up, while the they do their own homework or after you put the kiddos to bed. Our collaborative and easy-to-use online learning management system makes it easy and convenient for you to access and complete assignments, collaborate with peers, and receive real-time feedback from instructors skilled at online course delivery.

Online Master’s degrees:

If you haven’t yet completed your bachelor’s degree, our online Bachelor of Science in Organizational Management may be the perfect program for you.

Consider the facts.

According to a recent article in Businessweek, completing your master’s degree can add up to more than a half million dollars more in earnings in your lifetime. And, less than 15% of the population has a master’s degree. This equates to a huge competitive advantage for you in the workplace should you pursue a graduate-level education.

Your children will benefit from your degree.

In addition to the added salary and health insurance benefits that come along with earning your degree, children with parents who have earned their degree are more likely to pursue a college degree.*

You will succeed.

As a mother, you have seen, done and achieved more than your younger self ever thought possible. You have a wealth of life experiences to bring to your online graduate degree program. These experiences, coupled with your ability to immediately apply what you’ve learned in life and career, are key predictors that you will succeed as an online student at Spring Arbor University.

In addition, Spring Arbor University understands the importance of having a strong support network when you are completing your graduate degree. In addition to instructors, staff and peers who know exactly what it’s like to be an adult online learner, you will be assigned your own Student Success Advisor who will proactively work to help you find solutions to any challenges you might face as an online student at our university.
