Distance Learning Program
Berkeley supports each one of its online students with an instructor, classmates, and an academic adviser, all of whom are just an e-mail away.
Berkeley has always taught courses to all generations. With the understanding that many students may need to balance work, family, and social responsibilities with their course work, a Berkeley student may log on to a course from anywhere in the world, anytime he or she wants.
Online learners may use all of Berkeley's services, from libraries to academic advisers. More than 20 Berkeley career service professionals are on the staff to help with students' resumes and interviewing skills. With many connections to professionals in the business world, career service professionals also arrange interviews for students with many of the finest corporations in the New York area.
Berkeley's faculty members are practicing professionals who are as accessible as they are accomplished. Faculty members combine academic credentials and business success in the fields they teach, ensuring that students acquire the most current knowledge and skills.
The Berkeley balance of conceptual and practical education results in 94 percent of their graduates gaining employment in positions related to their course work.
Transfer counselors help students transfer their previously earned credits to Berkeley. Prior learning experiences (including alternatives to classroom instruction) may help students earn credits and complete their programs ahead of schedule.
