Master of Business Administration (MBA)

The following section was added:

Walker Joint MBA Program

For any undergraduate degree student at Webster University who is considering the Master of Business Administration degree, the Walker Joint MBA enables completion of the MBA in a shorter amount of time.

How it works

Webster undergraduate students are permitted to take up to 6 hours of graduate credit toward their BS or BA degrees. For students considering the MBA, they should take the following two courses during their senior year at Webster:

    • MRKT 5000 Marketing
    • MNGT 5590 Organizational Behavior

These courses will be counted as 6 hours of elective credit toward the BS or BA degree, and also will complete the requirement for those two courses within the MBA degree program. With the completion of these two courses, students will need only 30 hours of graduate coursework to complete the MBA, excluding any necessary pre-requisite coursework, if applicable.*

For further information, please contact Academic Advising, or the MBA Director. 

*PLEASE NOTE: Non-Business majors (BSBA, BA Economics, BS Finance, BS Accounting) and non-BA in Management majors are also encouraged to use undergraduate elective credit during sophomore, junior, or senior years, to take MNGT 2100, ACCT 2010, ACCT 2025, ECON 2020, and ECON 2030 to fulfill the necessary pre-requisite courses for the MBA. Otherwise, any non-applicable majors applying to the MBA will also be required to complete BUSN 5000, BUSN 5600 (Accounting), and BUSN 5620 (Economics) prior to starting the MBA, or to pass qualifying waiver exams for those courses.
