Course Syllabi For Online Students
This website is designed to give you an overview of the courses in the online MBA program and provide you with information about format and features used in the online courses and sample syllabus from classes.
Below is the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Student Accounts refund policy as it applies to eight-week courses:
|Refund %||% of calendar days passed|
|100%||0.000% - 7.408%|
|75%||7.409% - 10.256%|
|50%||10.257% - 16.239%|
|25%||16.240% - 22.222%|
|0%||22.223% - 100%|
The refund policy is calculated based on the percentage of calendar days that have passed since the first day of class. This percentage is based on the number of calendar days in the term and this total will vary by term. When you try to drop, the MyRED system will tell you the exact refund you will receive.
Register For Classes
Students will use MyRED to register and pay for classes each term.
Registration will open 30 days prior to the start of the term. The August and October terms are both considered part of the fall semester. The January and March terms are both considered part of the spring semester.
Online MBA class numbers are hidden in MyRED – they will not show up in a class search. Class numbers needed for registration will be emailed out from the MBA office 30 days prior to the start of the term.
Students will use MyRed to register and pay for classes each term.
The registration system is based on the traditional on-campus semester schedule. Because our GRBA classes run on unique, eight-week terms, students who plan to enroll in more than one eight-week term per semester must register for both terms before the start of the traditional semester.
ADDITIONAL BENEFITS FOR ALL MBA STUDENTS
MBA Mentoring Program
The purpose of the MBA Mentorship Program is to cultivate relationships between current graduate students and alumni or friends of the university. MBA students must apply for the program, and the mentors and mentees meet once a month from September through April. The MBA mentees gain insight to businesses and organizations, get career advice and expand their network.
Beyond B School
Beyond B School is a career management resource for all business graduate students. It covers job searching topics such as resumes, interviewing and cover letters. Beyond B School differentiates between other career management resources by thinking about how to market oneself as an experienced professional and highlighting the value the MBA brings.
Other Beyond B School resources address career change and salary negotiation to leverage the MBA in new careers. Especially helpful in this work-from-home time, Beyond B School has resources about virtual interviewing and networking. In particular, there are a number of resources around the use of LinkedIn and other social media to develop and maintain professional connections. The site is organized by topic area as well as action items – assess goals, career path and personal branding; target resumes, research and network; and launch through communication, interviewing and negotiation.
Redesigned Core Courses and Electives
All of the MBA@Nebraska core courses and many of the electives have been completely redesigned in Canvas. Feedback from our current students indicate that they value the intuitive and easy-to-access format of our new courses. We are continuing to update more electives this year.
