  • Overview

    This 10-course online Georgia WebMBA program typically takes five consecutive semesters (about 18 months) to complete. The courses are exclusively online. The learning objectives of the Georgia WebMBA program are the same as the face to face on campus MBA program.

    Top graduate faculty from each school teaches the Georgia WebMBA courses.  A single 2-day orientation held in Atlanta focuses on team building, program course-ware use, and interaction with program directors, administrators and graduates.

    Upon completion of the program, students receive the University of West Georgia diploma, similar to the campus-based programs.

    We are fully accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB – International), the premier accrediting body for business degree programs.

  • Cost

    This program is offered entirely online. Though a student may choose to sign-up for a face-to-face elective or core course, one can earn this degree completely online.

    Save money

    UWG is often ranked as one of the most affordable accredited university of its kind, regardless of the method of delivery chosen. In addition, online courses and programs can mean a huge cost-savings in many non-evident ways: No more high gas charges. No childcare needed. The flexibility can allow one to maintain a job while attending school. Regardless of state residency, out-of-state non-resident students are not charged non-resident tuition for online course credit hours.

    Details

    • Total tuition costs and fees may vary, depending on the instructional method of the courses in which the student chooses to enroll.
    • The more courses a student takes in a single term, the more they will typically save in fees and total cost.
    • Face-to-Face or partially online courses are charged at the general tuition rate and all mandatory campus fees, based on the student's residency (non-residents are charged at a higher rate).
    • Fully or entirely online courses are charged at the general tuition rate plus an eTuition rate BUT with fewer fees and no extra charges to non-Residents.
    • Together this means that GA residents pay about the same if they take all face-to-face or partially online courses as they do if they take only fully online courses exclusively; while non-residents save money by taking fully online courses.
    • One word of caution: If a student takes a combination of face-to-face and online courses in a single term, they will pay both all mandatory campus fees and the higher eTuition rate.
