Advance your business skills to develop and implement value-creating ideas and solutions in today's worldwide economy. The innovative MBA program at Webster University is designed for professionals who want to shape their own career, upgrade credentials, and be strategic players in the world of business.
Personalize Your Learning Experience
Flexible schedules are designed to fit your lifestyle, with small classes, personal attention, and a real-world approach. Choose between two convenient formats: a hybrid "flipped classroom" that combines online content with two hours per week of in-class learning or fully online coursework.
In the "flipped classroom" option, course content is provided online prior to class meetings. This allows class time to be reduced to two hours per week, and students have more time to focus on collaborative assignments and hands-on activities. This model reinforces the skills needed for success in today's economy, while also providing increased flexibility for students' busy lives.
Shape Your Career
Walker Global Hybrid courses provide students with a unique international experience through a focused online course plus a one-week international trip to locations such as Brazil, China and Greece.
