“Georgia’s MBA for the New Millennium”

The collaborative, web-based Master of Business Administration (WebMBA) program is offered by six AACSB-accredited business schools in Georgia (Valdosta State University, Columbus State University, Kennesaw State University, Georgia College and State University, Georgia Southern University, and the University of West Georgia). The purpose of this program is to enhance the graduate educational opportunities for working business professionals in Georgia. To view the Georgia WebMBA Consortium Web Site, click here.

All six schools admit students, who participate in a common curriculum. Each WebMBA consortium school provides faculty who are academically or professionally qualified. The faculty members for this program are among the strongest graduate faculty for each school in terms of teaching, research, and business experience.

A new WebMBA cohort is admitted each fall semester. Two WebMBA courses will be offered each semester, including summer terms. A student may complete the entire program in five semesters.
