You can choose between two tracks in the first year of the MBA program (the Business Core): the On-Campus Track or the Hybrid Track. Both tracks consist of seven modules each. If you choose the On-Campus Track, you will complete all modules on site; if you opt for the Hybrid Track, you will travel to the campus for four modules and take the remaining three as synchronous and asynchronous online sessions.
Choose the On-Campus Track to experience all our campus has to offer as well as a lively on-site exchange with faculty and fellow students at the impressive WU Campus. Alternatively, opt for a mix of classes on site of the WU Campus (4x) and online teaching (3x) in the Hybrid Track, which will let you benefit from mutual exchange and networking on site while simultaneously saving you days off from work and money as three of the modules will not require travel to and from the campus.
