An MBA may be a fit for those aiming to switch fields or move into managerial positions. But there are other online learning options for those who want basic business knowledge or concrete skills.  Online certificates may be either noncredit or for credit. A for-credit program may be structured so that the certificate is actually a portion of an MBA curriculum, allowing students to transfer credits if they decide to eventually pursue the MBA, says Vickie Cook, executive director of the Center for Online Learning, Research and Service at the University of Illinois—Springfield. “It allows students to really focus where at that particular time, to answer a direct need, and then if they have additional needs later on, they can move in that direction,” Cook says.
