Graduate degree provides tremendous benefits to students

The recently launched MBA program through Touro University Worldwide (TUW) marks its fourth graduate program in the online market. The MBA joins other TUW graduate degrees, including the Master of Arts in Industrial and Organizational Psychology, Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy and Master of Arts in Media and Communications Psychology. Our MBA will provide students with the same high educational standard of quality that has become our trademark.

But, while the MBA is a traditional business credential with tremendous value for graduates, TUW’s online MBA program is more than your typical business degree. Our program offers many unique benefits for today’s students that help set them apart from other brick-and-mortar business programs.

Affordable tuition: Not only does our MBA go toe to toe with other major MBA programs, we offer affordable tuition. Tuition is $500 per semester credit. TUW supports a robust tuition assistance program that includes scholarships, loans and grants that can limit your out-of-pocket expenses for your MBA. Many employers will supplement tuition costs for employees seeking advanced education that will improve their productivity and benefit the company. All students are required to complete the FAFSA form to be considered for federal, state or institutional financial assistance. Many organizations offering scholarships will also ask for FAFSA results to determine need.

A new learning theory: TUW uses the scholar-practitioner model of applied theory for our MBA program, which focuses curriculum on foundational theories that can be applied directly in business. Students become more articulate in business theory and improve problem-solving skills based on this comprehensive understanding.

A learner-centered approach to study: We put our students first and, as such, design programs around the learner. Our learner-centered academic approach to the MBA program has made our business degree distinct. We keep class sizes small to promote more frequent and meaningful interactions with instructors and peers. Our instructors are scholar-practitioners in their field and are selected based on their academic record and experiential credentials. They believe in your academic abilities and strive to be a solid partner in your education.

Specialized MBA program for a targeted degree: As more and more schools add it to their program catalog, the MBA is commonly viewed as a general business degree. Some argue that the saturation of MBA programs in the higher education market has decreased the value of this advanced credential; however, many employers and employees alike still believe in its significance in the job market. TUW takes a new approach to the general MBA—we offer five unique concentrations that give students complete control of their degree outcomes. Our MBA concentrations include the following:

  • Accounting
  • Finance
  • Global management
  • Human resources management
  • Marketing

These concentrations cover major business concepts and provide students with a comprehensive overview of the central ideas for targeted program outcomes. Students will complete nine semester credit hours in their desired concentration.

An accelerated format that puts you on track to graduate faster: TUW understands that your time is valuable, which is why we make it possible for full-time students to earn an MBA in just 12 months. The pace will be swift and the commitment to coursework strict; however, the payoff will be huge. In just 12 months, you could be positioned for greater career opportunities, higher earning potential and greater job security. The MBA is among the most sought credentials by today’s business employers and could be the step between you and your next promotion.

An accredited MBA program: Our MBA program is accredited by the Accrediting Commission for Senior College and Universities of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). This accreditation status ensures the quality and legitimacy of our program so you know you are making a safe and worthwhile investment.

An MBA program offered 100 percent online: TUW’s catalog of degree programs, including the MBA, is offered completely online to  make advanced education through TUW more accessible to more students. Our online delivery method removes two of the most common barriers to higher education— distance and time. Busy professionals can log on to coursework wherever they have an Internet connection and whenever time allows. Because online programs provide maximum convenience and flexibility, there is no need to commute to campus or adjust your schedule to make room for on-ground classes.

TUW’s MBA provides students with unique benefits that distinguish it among a saturated education market. Make our MBA work for your schedule and discover a big payoff.
