  • Great Reasons to Get Your Business Degree Online

    Barry Lenson

    In just the last month, I’ve seen more and more magazine ads for online business programs.  I’ve seen ads on websites too. Heck, I even saw a flashy big billboard by a highway in New Jersey that pitched an online MBA program. There’s no doubt about it.

  • The Difference between Having a Good Idea and Changing the World

    Jeffrey Simons

    The Social Entrepreneurship Certificate Program at StraighterLine By Jeffrey Simons Let’s face it: good ideas are a dime a dozen. Everybody gets them all the time. Especially when it comes to the “save the world” kind of good ideas. Does this sound familiar? You and a bunch of your friends are hanging out and someone brings up some recent news story that just sucks. Like the fact that there’s a giant swirling vortex of garbage in the Pacific Ocean that is hundreds of thousands, and maybe millions, of square miles in size.
