Program Options

WKU MBA Online Option

Many people, including many professionals and managers, cannot commit to a degree program where each class is 16 weeks one night a week for 2 ½ hours for as long as 2 or 3 years. If taking your courses in a time-bound and place-bound program will not fit your busy lifestyle the WKU Online MBA may be for you. The WKU Online MBA allows you to study part-time and/or full-time. Earn your degree in as little as 18 months or take up to 5 years.

The Online MBA, like all WKU MBAs, is comprised of 11 core MBA classes. Classes are 100% online. Currently 2 of these 11 include exams that are proctored. We have a service that coordinates with you to arrange a time and place for those exams.

All Online MBA classes are bi-term – about 7 weeks. They are designed using "adult learning theory" - learners focus upon one class at a time. Many students take one course per biterm (the equivalent of 2 per semester). Students who have more time on their hands can take one more course for a total of up to 3 in the 2 bi-terms that make up a semester at WKU.

In a recent exit exam used nationally our Online MBA students scored in the 10% in the nation for learning.
