"I really enjoy the curriculum in the Business Division.  It offers courses with various class options with Canvas.  This way, you can see how many assignments are due on the specific dates. I like that the online course allows me to study, learn, and practice at my own pace which I often like to get ahead on assignments if I know I can not do it around the time that it is due."
