Westminster College Adds Online MBA Program

NEW WILMINGTON, Pa. — The Westminster College Graduate School is now offering an online master of business administration degree program, which will benefit not only the working professional, but also current Westminster undergraduates interested in fast-tracking their way to an MBA.

Beginning in this fall, Westminster will begin offering MBA concentrations in general management, health-care management and business analytics.

Through the Westminster 4+1 MBA program, undergraduate students in any discipline will have the opportunity to earn a bachelor’s degree and an MBA in as little as five years. The 4+1 MBA program will offer the existing bachelor’s degree requirements for a four-year graduation timeline followed by a seamless transition into the graduate program.

Senior students during the 2019-2020 academic year interested in pursuing an MBA have the option to take one three-credit MBA course in the last semester of their senior year, the college said.

Full-time professionals can earn a Westminster MBA in as few as 12 months by taking four summer courses, three fall courses and three spring courses, or over the course of two years, with classes broken out into eight-week courses.

“We are very excited about the MBA program, especially the 4+1 program,” said Jeffrey Coker, vice president for academic affairs and dean of the Westminster College. “The MBA will provide opportunities for our current undergraduates, alumni, industry partners and other students.”

Enrollment to the MBA program is now open for the fall 2019 semester.
