WKU Online MBA

Online MBA

The Online MBA program provides you the flexibility of completing an MBA degree 100% online in as little as 12 months. Courses for the online program are offered as bi-terms (8 weeks) and there are 2 bi-terms in the Spring and Fall semesters. Many students take one course each bi-term (the equivalent of 2 classes per traditional semester), but you can finish in 12 months if you begin the program in the Fall semester and take two courses every bi-term. The program is comprised of 7 3-credit hour core MBA classes and 3 electives. Currently 2 of these 10 courses include exams that are proctored and we have a service that coordinates with you to arrange a time and place in your area for those exams. Visit our class offerings page to learn about what classes are offered and when they are offered.
