West Virginia Wesleyan College launches online Executive MBA

BUCKHANNON, West Virginia – West Virginia Wesleyan College is launching a new online Master’s in Business Administration to meet the unique needs of working professionals who require a flexible, affordable program to advance their careers or excel in their current roles.  

The Executive MBA Program in the Thomas A. Albinson School of Business will offer flexibility, practical relevance, experienced faculty, peer learning, a global perspective, leadership development and networking opportunities. Throughout the program, students will engage in case studies, simulations and projects that directly apply to their professional roles, ensuring immediate applicability of learning.

West Virginia Wesleyan College President Dr. James Moore said, “I’m really excited about the launch of this program and would like to thank Dr. Kim Conrad for her leadership. We’ve heard loud and clear from our industry partners that there is a real need for an executive MBA program that focuses on training the next generation of business leaders to advance North Central West Virginia and beyond. I believe this program will do that and more.”

The EMBA program will cost $500 per credit hour with students needing 36 hours of credit to graduate.  Designed to be flexible with working professionals who balance work study and personal commitments, the program can be completed in as little as 12 months or extended to 18 or 24 months. 

There are two residency requirements – an Orientation and Networking Residency for 2 ½ days prior to the start of the first semester and a 2 ½ day capstone residency to finish out the program. During the residencies, students will network with industry leaders, alumni and professionals in the business world.
