Welcome to West Chester University's Master of Business Administration Program.
We offer the Master of Business Administration degree and an Entrepreneurship Certificate in both the hybrid classroom and online formats. Our flexible options mean that you may complete the MBA, Certificate, or both at the the same time. You also may choose to complete your degree in our hybrid classroom format, or 100% online, or you may choose to mix and match our format offerings in order to fit your lifestyle and needs.
We are accredited by AACSB International - the premier global accrediting body for business schools.
We provide a graduate business education that exposes students to a wide-range of business issues taught by high quality, real-world focused faculty. Our programs continue to be one of the best educational values in Pennsylvania and throughout the United States. Our hybrid classes are offered at the West Chester University Graduate Center, our state-of-the-art classroom and office facility, located minutes from the Boot Road exit of Route 202, in the heart of one of the nation's leading business regions.
2015-2016 Tuition Rates have been released. Out of state students taking online courses pay just $1,437 in tuition per 3 credit course. Pennsylvania residents pay even less. Apply now and begin courses in October 2015!
On Wednesday October 7 please join us at Sykes Student Union for an Open House from 5:30pm - 7:30pm. Drop in for more information about the MBA and Certificate programs and to see the West Chester University Main Campus. No RSVP is necessary.
New local admitted students must attend an on-site Orientation Program. The entirety of the rest of the program may be completed online or in class. Online only students do not need to attend the Orientation Program and may complete the entire program without coming to our West Chester campus. The next Orientation Program will be offered in January 2016.
Welcome to West Chester University! Our MBA program is a joint effort of four premier departments on campus - the Accounting, Finance and Economics, Marketing and Management departments. It is truly a collaborative environment. The School of Business is accredited by AACSB International - the premier global accrediting body for business schools.
Our program has a healthy balance of non-traditional students who are mid career professionals, including doctors, lawyers, and managers, adults contemplating a second or third career, and traditional students who are just beginning their career. Our faculty all have experience working in the fields that they teach and many continue to work in the private sector while contributing to your education in the classroom and online and conducting relevant research that they apply directly to the classroom experience. The diversity of experience that all of our stakeholders bring to the MBA experience stimulates a dynamic, productive environment.
To learn more about our program, we encourage you to explore this website. We trust that it will prove a useful source of information for you and answer many of your initial questions. In addition, we'd be happy to talk with you at anytime; please contact us.
Thank you for your interest in the MBA and Certificate programs at West Chester University.
