More About Our MBA

The MBA is a 12-course sequence, delivered by a combination of research professors and practitioners who are at the forefront of their field in areas ranging from organizational behavior and behavioral finance to strategic management and leadership.

Students can choose to attend with one of two options: Live Virtual (Off-campus) or Face to Face (On-Campus)

The innovative curriculum delivery methods combine online learning weekly through WorldClassroom (Canvas) with three-hour live application and discussion sessions, either face-to-face or virtually for 8 week terms. Class times are adapted to the cohort of students who are currently enrolled. Common options include two weekday evenings from 6pm or Saturdays from 11am with special events/networking also built into the terms. Please contact admissions to discuss your preferences.

Webster offers five such terms per year (Fall 1 and Fall 2, Spring 1 and Spring 2 and one 8-week Summer term).

This allows busy professionals to attend, and for those who may be seeking employment or internships to keep an open daytime schedule.

Academic Performance & Need Based Scholarships are available. More details can be found on our Graduate Admissions Pages.

“I wasn’t a typical business student applicant on paper.”

Ellissa Koch
I have a BA in Rhetoric and had never taken a finance class, but they looked at my practical experience in addition to my schooling and had the faith in me to let me prove myself. Studying in Geneva opened my eyes to looking at problems from a bigger perspective. Having classmates from around the world was truly beneficial because it blended so many different cultures and personalities, and forced you to learn how to work together. My internship at Crescendo Capital helped me to apply the knowledge I had learned in a practical setting and focus on discovering where my skills could be best used, and developing my plans for the future What I will remember most about Webster is learning how to push myself outside of my comfort zone, and helping bring others with me. I studied hard and developed a group of friends that I could bounce around ideas, or study with, or just talk about everyday life.
