Pennsylvania's Widener University Launches Online MBA

Concentrations in health care and business process management availalble

Pennsylvania's Widener University has announced that it will launch an online MBA program, beginning this fall.

In the new program, students can choose to pursue a general business track or a concentration in either healthcare management or business process innovation.

The program is flexible, and can be completed in as few as one and a half calendar years.

On-campus residencies are not required in the new online MBA program, although students are welcome to attend career fairs and other on-campus activities. Students who pursue the concentration in healthcare who do not have previous work experience in the industry will be required to complete an internship locally.

Widener University is accredited by AACSB International.

According to the school, the healthcare concentration will prepare students for careers in health care, such as healthcare administrator or director of health information management; the concentration in business process innovation may help students land jobs like process analyst or process owner.

Applications for the online MBA program's fall 2014 are now open. To apply for the program, a GMAT score of at least 450 is required; however, applicants to have more than five years of work experience can request a GMAT waiver.

International applicants must have a TOEFL score of at least 95 for all programs.

Widener's announcement is the latest in a series of American business schools which have launched online MBA programs to diversify their degree offerings. Just this year, New Mexico State, Louisiana Tech, Baylor University, and the University of Utah's Eccles School of Business have all launched online MBA programs.
