The University’s many flexible paths allow students to maintain their current lifestyle while moving towards their educational goals. In-person residencies, virtual field experiences, and discussions with faculty and peers around the world are just a few of the ways that students can extend their learning beyond the virtual classroom. All programs have multiple start dates throughout the year, and many can be completed completely at your own pace through the innovative TEMPO Learning format.
The online MBA at Walden carries ACBSP accreditation and includes three distinct completion options. The Course-Based MBA follows a 20-month timeline with a predetermined schedule.
