Online Bachelor of Commerce

Your Personal Support Team

Being an online MBA student at Athabasca University’s Faculty of Business (AUFB) is an experience like no other.

Once you are accepted into the program, you join a virtual ‘classroom’ of talented managers from  organizations of various shapes and sizes and industries−private, not-for-profit, and government−across the country and beyond.

And you have a strong support network to help you succeed:  core faculty, academic coaches, technical and administrative supports … not to mention your new student peer community. AUFB also has a strong student and alumni relations group that will help you connect to students and graduates of your own and other AU business programs.

Help Desk

We know you want to be able to effectively study, collaborate, and get your work done online without having to become a technical expert on our systems. We want that too. HelpDesk staff provide you the resources and assistance you need to participate effectively in the online learning environment. They work extended hours to help you with your initial setup, with travel issues, or any other technical issue that comes along.

Student Services

All  MBA students are assigned a student services coordinator upon acceptance into the program. Your coordinator becomes your main administrative contact and works with you throughout your program to help you manage your schedule and meet your degree requirements.

When your job demands or other life issues get too big even for an online study schedule, your student services coordinator will help you find the best way through.

Your student services coordinator generally stays the same throughout the life of your program. However, if you defer one or more courses, you may be moved into another student cohort and assigned a new coordinator.
