Master of Business Administration

Program Details

WGU created its widely respected Master of Business Administration degree program to give busy professionals an opportunity to gain the necessary credentials to take on leadership positions. WGU’s MBA program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP)—a leading specialized accreditation association for business education. Designed with input from industry experts, this program includes courses on management, economics, leadership, and strategy. Graduate will be prepared to fill leadership roles including owner, president and CEO, executive director, or chief strategic officer.

Online programs allow for unparalleled flexibility, so students can complete coursework whenever and wherever works best for their schedule. Students also benefit from WGU's competency-based learning model, which makes it possible for them to potentially graduate faster by completing courses as quickly as they can prove mastery of the required material. Additionally, Faculty Mentors work one-on-one with WGU students, providing dedicated coaching, guidance, and support from enrollment through graduation.

Requirements

Must have a bachelor’s degree from a regionally or nationally accredited college or university. Must also submit a resume that shows at least three years of professional experience. All applicants to WGU must take a short, three-part online admission test that helps determine the likelihood of success in a WGU program.

Accreditation & Licensing

Western Governors University is the only university to have received simultaneous accreditation by four regional accrediting commissions. Currently, WGU's "home" accrediting commission is the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities, the same organization that accredits such leading institutions as the University of Washington, University of Oregon, University of Utah, Brigham Young University, and other public and private colleges.
