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.
