It’s never too late to learn something new! We think the key to success is learning, so we thought we’d have a look at the best online programs through Capella University’s self-paced FlexPath format.

1. Build a business

What does it take to succeed in the world of business? Knowledge of leadership, law, marketing, sales and human resources to name just a few skills. Luckily the Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration will teach you all of that and more.


2. Develop websites

The internet is the future, but there’s still so much to learn about it. There are so many career paths that branch off from web development skills. The Bachelor’s degree minor in Web Development is one I.T. program you don’t want to miss.

You can learn how to develop databases, websites, web applications, web services and learn languages like JavaScript. With hard work and dedication, this degree could be the foundation of a successful career.

3. Financial success

A fundamental part of any business is accounting. A Bachelor’s in Accounting will help you out if business finances are something you’ve always wanted to be better at. You’ll learn about balancing books, taxes, financial paperwork, financial skills and business knowledge that will make you an invaluable member of any team. Plus, if you’re looking to start your own business you’ll have a much greater confidence in your finances! Woohoo!

4. The ultimate entrepreneur course

The MBA in Entrepreneurship is a degree that can help you be a successful entrepreneur.

It will teach you about building a business or advising new business ventures. Which means you could become a business consultant or start  your own venture after graduating. You learn about financial accounting, global marketing and how to build a successful business. Plus you’ll even have mobile access to the course so you can take it with you wherever you go.

5. Psychology

What makes people tick? The Bachelor’s in General Psychology is a popular program, and there are tons of career paths you could follow such as counseling, criminology, research, and social work. It’s also a really fulfilling line of work as you get to discover the inner workings of the mind, which can be a skill for any line of work within public service, law enforcement, business, sales, market research, healthcare or social services.

    I would love to go back to school. Not only does the routine and nurturing environment really work for me but I think I took the wrong course! I focused on theatre but I am constantly wishing that I had paired it with English for a joint hons! Also, love the new edition of the author’s picture and blurb at the bottom of the article :) (unless I’d missed it before…very likely)
