- Tuesday, October 23rd, 2018
WKU’s Online MBA Program has been ranked as one of the Best MBA Programs for 2019 by OnlineMasters.com. The organization, along with more than 50 industry experts, hiring managers, current students, and alumni, analyzed every online MBA program in the country and ranked them according to academic quality, student success, and affordability.
“We are pleased to be ranked 16th in the nation for our excellent WKU Online MBA program,” said Dr. Bob Hatfield, MBA Program Director. “Our student-friendly, 100% online MBA program uses cutting-edge innovations and features a modern curriculum. Students are taught by the same highly qualified faculty who lead our on-campus students. Students can earn their MBA in as few as 12 months or they may take up to five years, depending upon their personal goals.”
OnlineMasters.com recognized the Online MBA program as one of the best for non-business majors, calling it “a friendly online MBA program that works for a variety of students.”
Non-business majors prepare for the rigors of an MBA curriculum through innovative MBA Foundation Modules. The modules comprise seven on-demand, online course modules that allow students to learn business fundamentals at their own pace.
Cost is always an important consideration when selecting a Master’s program.
“We charge a ‘distance learning’ tuition that allows out-of-state students to save money on their tuition,” Hatfield said.
“The Online MBA program is a great example of the kinds of programming we offer through the Gordon Ford College of Business at WKU,” said Interim Dean Cathy Carey. “Our programs are AACSB-accredited in both Accounting and Business, which provides additional assurance of rigor and quality. We take pride in offering students exceptional value for their tuition dollars.”
