Discover the benefits of learning online

It's Convenient
Work toward certification any time day or night, whenever it is convenient for you. Whether it is after you tuck the kids into bed, before you hustle off to work or while you are relaxing on the weekends - it is your education, and it is your choice when you earn it.

It's Flexible
Wherever you are around this great globe, an online education at UWM can come to you. Checked into a hotel, sipping lattes at a local coffee shop or snuggled up on your living room sofa, if you can log on, you can learn.

It's Personalized
Your online learning experience provides more individual attention than a traditional classroom setting. Through regular emails and chat room conversations with your instructors, you will gain the one-one-one interaction that fosters true connections and opens the lines of communication.

It's Comprehensive
You can access articles, class notes, lectures, e-books and other course materials that are posted online anytime you need them. Plus, you won't have to go to the brick and mortar library, just find that another student has already checked out the material that you need. When you learn online, you will have direct access to resources you need.

It's Innovative
Bulletin boards, chat rooms, emails, webinars - attending online classes not only earns you a certification in your chosen field, it teaches you how to use critical technological skills that will be essential in the emerging business world.
