Completing an MBA program while working is a demanding endeavor. The WU Executive Academy offers flexible options that will enable you to better integrate your studies in your professional and private life.
Blended learning structures optimize knowledge transfer and make for smooth learning journeys. Access to our e-learning platform allows you to finish your assignments in a flexible way – on your way to work, the lunch break, or during a business trip.
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.
From the start of your program, you will become a lifetime member of the WU Executive Club and will enjoy numerous exclusive benefits:
The Professional MBA allowed me to perfect my skills and more importantly hone the systemic approach to projects and daily work, invaluable skills throughout one’s career.
