  1. After getting BA degree I have passed COL MBA from AIOU and I want to get admit ion in MS Marketing, am I eligible for that ?

  2. There should be a guide, or maybe even videos, on how to use the online system to
    turn in your work. This is also an advantage because you can complete more courses in a semester
    than at a traditional college. The classes at Benedictine University for adult learning are designed for adults who have not yet completed
    their bachelor.
