Ways to Learn

UMass Global offers two learning formats that can work around your busy schedule; competency-based and course-based.

Competency-Based Programs (UMass Global MyPath™)

MyPath programs are 100% online, self-paced. The learning format helps save time and money since prior experience helps students master competencies faster. Unlimited courses and textbooks are also included for one flat tuition fee.

ALL CBE PROGRAMS

Course-Based Programs (Online & Hybrid)

Whether fully online or hybrid, course-based programs follow a more typical class structure. Courses are term-based, taught by faculty and graded traditionally.

If I put more time in it I can get it done faster.  The best part is that you find out what you do know and what you need to know.

The flexibility is 100% my favorite thing. There are no deadlines. It means that if something does get in the way I don't get stressed about that.
Colin G. | MyPath BBA, Management and Organizational Leadership
When comparing the CBE experience to my previous traditional college experience, the CBE program is so much more fitting in allowing me to maintain a full time job and complete my degree.
Current Student | MyPath
In some of the early competencies (Strategies, Marketing, etc.) I sailed through a lot of the coursework because it was material that I already use in my workplace.
