Program description


Online MBA

The Online MBA is identical to our on-campus MBA - same high-tech curriculum, same courses, same faculty, same expectations and admission requirements, same credential. You work virtually, teaming up with other online students as well as on-campus students. You may complete all or part of your MBA program online. There is no on-campus residency requirement.

WPI offers the nation's only AACSB-accredited, fully online MBA with a singular focus in high-tech. The quality shows - WPI is ranked in the Best Online MBA programs and in the Top 55 National Universities in U.S. News and World Report.

We were one of the first universities in the United States to deliver an MBA via distance learning - we've been doing it since 1979. And we're good at it.

A correspondence program this is not. Online MBA students fully participate in all aspects of each course, including case discussions, team projects and project presentations. Using the Blackboard course management and communication tool, course materials are delivered online and students interact with their professors and fellow students via chat rooms, shared whiteboards and discussion forums.

The Online MBA is asynchronous - you decide when to do your course work each week - but courses are structured within a semester timeframe. This model provides you with both the flexibility and the structure to garner the maximum benefit from your MBA experience.

And just like the on-campus MBA, Online MBA students decide for themselves which courses to take each semester. On average, completing the Online MBA program takes about three years.

"I did my course work 100% online... The skills that I received... in marketing, in logistics, in project management, are the same kinds of skills we're trying to transfer to the local communities we work with in Africa to improve conservation efforts."
