School of Business

Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.): DE
Location(s): Online Learning

Program Overview

Program format: Part-time
Total credits: 55.5

Students may begin the program in the Fall, Spring or Summer semesters (August, January, or May). Each semester is comprised of fourteen weeks of coursework and generally students will take two classes per module for a total of four per semester.

All coursework is offered completely online, though students may take classes on-campus if desired. Cutting-edge, digital courses are organized into learning episodes and are comprised of videos, video cases, podcasts, animations, and other pre-recorded content in addition to traditional reading assignments. Students progress within each learning unit at their own pace, but must complete the learning unit by assigned target dates.

Each course offers live online classroom sessions where students participate in lectures, case discussions, and/or group activities. Students register for these live sessions at the beginning of each semester. The live sessions are also recorded and made available to students within the digital platform. These sessions provide participants with real-time contact with faculty and other students. This mix of digital and live sessions maximizes learning and flexibility.

In addition to live classroom discussions, faculty are available to students during online office hours offered through the digital classroom platform. Office hours afford students the opportunity to interact informally with faculty and ask questions about course material and assignment feedback. With the GW Online MBA, students have ultimate flexibility. No concentration is required, but you have the option to choose up to two concentrations by customizing your degree to meet your specific career goals.

Online students are also welcome to pursue a hybrid format, taking traditional on-campus coursework alongside the online options.
