It is designed to fit the schedules of working professionals and can be completed in two years or less through online courses.
“Our online MBA provides a diverse credential for exceptional career flexibility and achievement,” Lee Bailey, dean of graduate business at William Woods University, said. “The skills you develop in our online program — leadership, financial competency, organizational theory, information systems and more — will show your organization that you are ready to take your place among its leaders.”
She added, “Chief among these skills is entrepreneurship, which will help you find new ways to lead and create solutions in a world of constrained resources, environmental challenges and competitive global markets.”
The MBA at William Woods requires the completion of 10 three-credit courses, including a final applied case project where students complete a written business plan and defend it in an oral presentation to an outside panel of business experts.
“Students can expect rigorous coursework with real-world relevance, designed and taught by professionals who have proven their expertise in the corporate world,” Betsy Tutt, WWU vice president of academic affairs and dean of the Graduate College, said. “The online MBA degree’s strong theoretical background is balanced by an emphasis on practice that puts theory to work.”
