Online Hybrid MBA
This pathway is designed with students in both the business and non-business sectors
in mind. The WVU Online Hybrid MBA program will help develop the knowledge
and confidence in those interested in areas such as Management, Leadership, Finance,
Marketing, Strategic Communication, Supply Chain Management, Entrepreneurship,
and Management Information Systems, among others.
One of the great values of the Online Hybrid MBA program is that it allows students
– both veterans and newcomers to a particular area of business – to pursue a graduate
degree while working full-time which allows for continued professional growth and
may give them an advantage in the job market.
This program spans 2 years, 48 credit hours and is cohort based. Additionally, there
are 4 mandatory 3-4 days residency requirements whereby students are required to
be on campus with their cohort to discuss, collaborate and connect with peers on
what they have learned and apply that knowledge to existing issues. Typically,
residencies run from Thursday to Saturday, or Sunday to Tuesday. Residency dates
will be provided 4-6 months in advance for students to make the necessary arrangements.
