Montana has lost fewer jobs than the national average over the course of the recession, with educated workers employed in numbers higher than those without a high school diploma

Montana has lost fewer jobs than the national average over the course of the recession and more educated workers are employed than those without a high school diploma. For many, an online degree is a first step toward success in many of the state's major industries, which include commercial mining, hospitality, and industrial engineering. Tourism is another major industry, as Montana is home to Glacier National Park, Flathead Lake, and the site of the Battle of Little Bighorn and provides three of five entrances to Yellowstone National Park.

Eleven of the 14 campuses that make up the public Montana University System offer over 700 online courses each semester and nearly 100 degree and certificate programs. Over 8,000 students enroll in Montana University System's distance learning courses each semester. Some of the most popular subjects for distance learning include courses in business, finance and accounting, and computer science.

Several for-profit, private institutions, including Devry University, Kaplan University, and American Intercontinental University, offer online courses and degrees to Montana residents. Private accredited colleges such as Blackfeet Community College, University of Great Falls, and Rocky Mountain College offer distance-learning programs and, depending on the school, online certification or complete degree programs. Both public and private colleges and universities may require on-campus classes with their online programs.
