Welcome to Kettering University Online

Thank you for choosing Kettering University to continue your graduate studies! As our University begins our next 100 years, it is important to note that Kettering University Online will continue the legacy of providing quality education by extending our brand to the nation and the world. We have been privileged to share in the education and advancement of our learners who currently reside in twenty-seven states and six countries!

KUO currently offers 7 programs and 6 certificates through the School of Management and the College of Engineering. Our online offerings afford you the opportunity to earn a prestigious master’s degree in a way that fits your busy personal and professional life. Classes are 100% online and offered in seven, nine and twelve-week formats with up to 8 term starts per year, allowing you to select the terms which best fit your busy lifestyle.

Unlike other online graduate degree programs which are largely composed of lengthy video-based lectures, which is a passive way to learn, KUO courses employ the latest research and best practices of online education and instructional design by including short, focused videos or learning modules highlighting both theory and application. Providing academic content in this manner allows you to hone your ability to critically analyze and synthesize material which are essential skills for graduate learning.

Additional benefits of enrolling in KUO courses include learning from, and working with, esteemed academic and industry professionals with degrees from some of the finest institutions in the world. KUO instructors know the value of both theory and practice which provides maximum benefit to learners; they are accessible, approachable, and available to support and guide you through course content as well as professional challenges and career aspirations.

KUO’s philosophy is “Learn Today-Use Tomorrow”. As you progress through your program this motto becomes apparent. In every course, through assignments and discussion forums, you have the opportunity to use your professional experiences and/or workplace environment as context. In addition, assignments and discussions offer an authentic assessment of your skills and learning as a far superior way to internalize, synthesize and apply knowledge. This method also ensures development of your skills and mastery of academic content over time.

KUO learners bring the “Learn Today- Use Tomorrow” philosophy to life. For example, learners in our Lean Manufacturing program often describe how they use the tools and techniques of Lean to 5s their garages or find a way to get their kids to sleep earlier or reduce stress by saving time in their morning routines. Learners in our MBA program have turned their capstone projects into reality by building community playgrounds and initiating new business endeavors.

Our KUO graduates get promoted, change careers and companies, create new businesses and go on to complete their doctorates. Our programs will challenge your thinking, change the way you communicate, improve your writing and presentation skills and teach you new ways of thinking and tackling the problems you face every day. While these programs are not for everyone, they are for the person seeking to challenge their preconceptions, current thinking and ways to make a difference.
