Students are increasingly questioning the value of a traditional business school degree. Meanwhile, online learning is booming as costs come down and the technology improves. But will advances in online learning disrupt the MBA? By some metrics, the MBA is already falling out of fashion.

Conversely, the number of distance learning students is up by 3.9% year-over-year, says the Online Learning Consortium. Nearly six million students are going viral.

Biz students are using stackable certificates to create customized online degrees.
