The John Chambers College of Business and Economics at West Virginia University (WVU) has an Online Hybrid MBA Program (OHMBA) that provides a Virtual Orientation, where students can introduce themselves to peers, faculty, and teammates, and two three-day residencies that allow students to work on projects and network. To be admitted to the Chambers OHMBA Program, students must have a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution, and two years of professional work experience.
A typical schedule for this AACSB-accredited program consists of eight credit hours each fall and spring semester and 4-7 credit hours each summer semester. Many courses in the fall and spring semesters are a half semester in length, which results in students taking just 1-2 courses at a time. All coursework for this 37 credit hour program can be complete online, and qualified OHMBA students can add a certificate such as Business Data Analytics, Forensic Accounting and Fraud Examination, and Business Cybersecurity Management.
The Chambers OHMBA also offers an optional Integrated Marketing Communications Emphasis (AOE) consisting of four courses (12 credits): Audience Insight, Emerging Media and the Market, Introduction to Integrated Marketing Communications, and Brand Equity Management.
