My experience as BU online student was better than I expected.
I feel connected with the school and the classmates all the time, no matter where they are.
I had the opportunity to meet people from many different locations from US and other countries around the world, sharing experiences and learning from all of them.

The best of being an online student is that we virtually study much more time than if we were a regular on campus student. We participate more and have more study hours per class than if we were in a formal class.

I participated in the implementation of a telework pilot program in my company, and after one year we compared the results. This is interesting that as such as in an online class, the telework employees also presented better results than the regular ones that work at the office.

Having the freedom to organize time according to your needs and lifestyle, gives flexibility, reducing stress and improving productivity. It is valid for school and work (when it is possible).

I really like Boston University online programs and I would recommend them for all.

It was such a pleasure to meet members of the BU ODE department. Having completed graduate programs in this environment, I have never felt more attached and a part of any program, including a couple of traditional programs.
Living between NY and Atlanta, I get plenty of opportunity to get to Boston and see professors as well as those who make the program hum like Meredith and Liz. They always make time to speak and share encouraging words and energy even though I know they are reading at least a thousand emails with “emergency” in the subject line.
The classes are relevant and exciting. Not to mention having some of the coolest and diverse students in your class really makes you feel like you are on campus everyday.
There is no higher recommendation I could make for BU and the ODE.
Thanks ALL
