Can a felon take MBA courses while in prison?

I know they are offered college courses but does that include mba?


Answer by  elb (1105)

Most courses offered in prisons are community college or four year college courses leading to a Bachelors degree. An MBA is a graduate program, requiring a Bachelors degree first. A felon might be able to take correspondence or online courses toward an MBA; prisons would not offer a program.

As long as you can find a program that offers correspondence courses and you are able to satisfy all of the program requirements (complete all the work, take tests on time, etc.) then imprisonment for a felony shouldn't be a problem. Convicted felons are not allowed to vote while in prison, but they are allowed to receive an education.

Yes, a felon can get his MBA while in prison. Online MBA schools do not exclude felons. Like anyone trying to get a Master's degree, the college must accept the student; so if the felon doesn't have decent college grades or didn't do well on the GMAT test, he might not be accepted to an MBA program.

Provided that the student can find an online MBA course program that can be done completely online and as long as there are no requirements which could not be done within the prison, a felon can take the courses while incarcerated.


Answer by  TheAnswerFairy (2345)

Although convicts are not specifically barred from taking MBA courses, it is unlikely that these courses would be available to them. Legitimate MBA programs are typically quite selective, and imprisoned felons would probably not meet their admission requirements. Most prisoners study with community colleges or other institutions where there are no stringent requirements for admission.

There are ex-felons that have their MBA's but the record of them going to prison makes it hard to find even a demeaning job. There is still hope out there. They will find a meaningful job sooner or later.
