Why Choose the WSU MBA?
Weber State University is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU). The John B. Goddard School of Business & Economics is also accredited by AACSB International—The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. AACSB Accreditation is an internationally recognized specialized, professional designation for business and accounting programs at the bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral level. Established in 1916, it is the longest standing and most sought accreditation for higher education in business – a powerful differentiator across the world. AACSB-accredited schools must meet established, challenging, and peer-reviewed standards of quality. Institutions that hold AACSB Accreditation have proven their commitment to quality and continuous improvement through the rigorous and comprehensive review process.
OUR PROGRAM, YOUR LIFE
Designed for the working professional, the Goddard School MBA Program is taught in a flexible hybrid format designed to enable students to tailor the timing and pace of their degree program to their busy schedules. Most classes follow an 8-week format, meeting one weeknight per week (5:30-8:30 p.m.), while the online component of each class enables the continuation of content delivery and discussions throughout the week. MBA courses are offered during fall, spring and summer semesters, each of which contains two 8-week blocks.
MBA students may take one or two classes per 8-week block, or stop out of the program for one or more blocks when their lives or careers need to come first. Since our entering students are not placed in an inflexible cohort, they may take courses in the order that best suits their own schedules, rather than conforming to ours.
FLEXIBLE SCHEDULE, FLEXIBLE CURRICULUM
Our 8-week course blocks are scheduled within the full-length undergraduate semester calendar, so registration and tuition deadlines, holidays and breaks are largely the same. Required courses are typically taught twice per year, and elective and foundations courses once per year. While students should register for both course blocks in advance, they may adjust their second block schedule if needed during the first 8-weeks of the semester. The course schedule is kept as stable as possible from year to year. Below are the currently-available course schedules:
COST + LOCATION = ACCESSIBILITY
The Master of Business Administration is the most sought after graduate degree today. Prohibitive tuition charges can prove to be an effective barrier to the degree for anyone who does not receive employer tuition support. We believe that unaffordable tuition should never create an obstacle to educational opportunity. Compare our tuition here.
