Adult Education Online
Capella doesn't have a physical campus. It's a completely online university. It's also fully accredited, offering multiple degree programs at both the graduate and bachelors levels. It has a student enrollment of nearly 18,000 and continues to grow.
Part of its success is attributable to its flexibility and "virtual campus", but part of the reason Capella is doing so well relates to its faculty. Take Professor Sara Orem, for instance. The professional coach and management expert has worked with large corporations and governments. She owns and operates here own firm. She's recently published a new book on the topic of appreciative coaching. She's also part of the Capella faculty. With adjunct professors like Orem, it's no surprise that those who are looking for a way to "go back to school" are flocking to Capella.
