Program Details

Penn State’s online MBA program reflects the same level of quality as its on-campus degree.  The program curriculum centers around a teaching methodology using ICE:  Integration, Collaboration and Engagement.  Classes are asynchronous, enabling you to learn at your own pace and on your own schedule.  However, if you enjoy discussion and learning from your peers, there are opportunities for synchronous learning as well.

Throughout Penn State’s online MBA, you will work as part of a team, learn how to lead a team and create business solutions using teamwork.  You will learn how to apply your comprehensive knowledge from all business disciplines to develop these solutions to real-life scenarios.  A key component of the online MBA program at Penn State is a 5-day residency where you will meet members of your team -- your cohort and your professors.
