The Weekend MBA is offered in a blended format; one Saturday a month in class, the rest conveniently delivered online. It’s the best of both worlds — the richness of face-to-face interactions coupled with the convenience of online education. Now you can balance your work and family demands while you pursue your MBA.
The WMBA is the same robust, integrated curriculum as our evening program, but with a focus on the healthcare industry. Electives feature healthcare industry topics, and core courses incorporate healthcare topics throughout the curriculum via class examples, assignments, case studies, and more. Although a focus is placed on the healthcare industry, those employed in other industries are also encouraged to apply. Students find this variety of experience adds an invaluable element of diversity in perspective and insights.
Network, network, network
Students have the chance to develop a powerful network of healthcare professionals through our cohort-based approach. All students start and end the program together and work on team-based projects. This approach gives students the opportunity to develop close relationships with fellow students while honing their teamwork skills.
Excellent value proposition
The WMBA program cost is $25,000, all-inclusive, and payments are spread across all semesters students are in the program. There are no hidden fees and no additional costs – tuition, all fees, books, even meals on class days are included. Compare this to other programs and you will see that when quality, price and convenience are considered, the WMBA program may be the best educational value you will find.
Professors use a variety of instructional methods depending on the course. Case studies, group projects, research, and their own business experience provide the basis for rich lectures and discussion. Team projects and presentations, along with class discussions, allow students to share their own expertise as they learn from one another.
