Pursuing your MBA online can have benefits for your career, but selecting the right program can be difficult.
In this article you will find vital information you need to know to make a decision about our online MBA program.
Flexibility and convenience
At TUW, we understand that you have other obligations, including work and family. Our MBA program is designed to accommodate busy professionals balancing a variety of commitments. To allow you to fulfill those commitments, our online platform enables you to study at a time that works for you. Our faculty is experienced in teaching online, so they are accessible to students studying away from campus, meaning you still get to build meaningful relationships with them and enjoy a rigorous academic experience.
Scholar-practitioner model of study
At TUW, our students learn firsthand from industry experts that bring years of relevant experience to our MBA program. Our instructors impart real-world, practical knowledge that is relevant and applicable.
Your own experience is invaluable to your education. Students are encouraged to share their practical experience to help the entire class grow.
Real-world experience also extends to our capstone project. This portion of the program requires that students apply all of their learned knowledge into a real-world organizational management situation.
You’re never alone at TUW. Our staff is committed to helping our MBA students throughout their entire time in the program. We understand that the nature of online study means students may be completing course work around the clock; we’re ready with 24/7 support.
