The MBA is a 12-course sequence, delivered by a combination of research professors and practitioners who are at the forefront of their field in areas ranging from organizational behavior and behavioral finance to strategic management and leadership.

The innovative curriculum delivery method combines weekly online learning through WorldClassroom (Canvas) with one in-person, three-hour application and discussion session for eight-week terms. Class times are adapted to the cohort of students who are currently enrolled. Common options include two weekday evenings from 6 p.m. or Saturdays from 11 a.m. with special events/networking also built into the terms. Please contact admissions to discuss your preferences.

Webster offers five eight-week terms per year (Fall 1 and Fall 2, Spring 1 and Spring 2, and one Summer term). This allows busy professionals to attend, and for those who may be seeking employment or internships to keep an open daytime schedule.

Alumni Success - ELLISSA KOCH

“I wasn’t a typical business student applicant on paper.”

Ellissa Koch
I have a BA in Rhetoric and had never taken a finance class, but they looked at my practical experience in addition to my schooling and had the faith in me to let me prove myself. Studying in Geneva opened my eyes to looking at problems from a bigger perspective. Having classmates from around the world was truly beneficial because it blended so many different cultures and personalities, and forced you to learn how to work together. My internship at Crescendo Capital helped me to apply the knowledge I had learned in a practical setting and focus on discovering where my skills could be best used, and developing my plans for the future What I will remember most about Webster is learning how to push myself outside of my comfort zone, and helping bring others with me. I studied hard and developed a group of friends that I could bounce around ideas, or study with, or just talk about everyday life.
