The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater Online MBA Program allows students from around the world to interact with other students and instructors, as well as experts within the field, in a shared learning environment. Students are able to research, analyze, and communicate with others in their related field online. Our goal is to provide a high-quality educational experience that will professionally prepare students for careers in business using online technology. The Online MBA Program is fully accredited by AACSB International.
At present you can earn an MBA entirely on line with an emphasis in Marketing, Finance, Management, Human Resource Management, International Business, or Technology and Training. We are working on expanding our Online MBA emphasis areas. You may choose to combine traditional classes with online classes to complete an emphasis in Accounting, Decision Support Systems, IT Management, or Operations & Supply Chain Management.
Electronic delivery. Traditional quality.
Whether you're an individual seeking career advancement, or an employer looking for staff development options, the UW-Whitewater Online MBA has the quality and flexibility you need.
UW-Whitewater built its Online MBA in 1998 on a solid foundation. It emphasized quality faculty and top academic standards, not high-tech gimmicks. In fact, the Online MBA has all of the features that make UW-Whitewater’s on-campus program so successful.
- A Ph.D. is required of faculty members who teach in the program, as well as specialized training to meet the challenges of online teaching.
- All credits earned online can be transferred to UW-Whitewater's traditional MBA program, which has the same admissions requirements, classes and instructors.
- UW-Whitewater's program is accredited by Advanced Collegiate Schools of Business International (AACSB), a leading organization with more than 900 member institutions around the world.
- The curriculum and the software promotes interactive learning among students, through group projects and real-life business problem-solving.
Most students can complete the program in two years. Approximately 12 courses are offered each semester. Course tuition is $550 per credit.
LearningSpace Software Platform Used to Deliver Online Courses
LearningSpace is the primary distance education tool used with online courses at UW-Whitewater. You may view a course sample at http://academics.uww.edu/business/onlinemba/samplecourse.html.
Students may log in using a Lotus Notes Client or any internet browser. The Lotus Client allows students to copy the course to their computer hard drive and then only connect when they want to send and receive course updates. This method is particularly suited for people in isolated areas with slower modem access or traveling business persons who want to take their work with them on a laptop computer.
We believe a critical feature of all online courses is the implementation of a layered architecture. Students should be exposed to audio, video, and interactive simulations as well as written communication. The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater provides layered information in part through the use of CD-ROM technology. All CD-ROMs include video/audio files, PowerPoint slides, ETEACH and Camtasia presentations and other lecture notes which correspond with each course module. These files allow the student to view the course lectures/demonstrations as if they were in the classroom.
