The Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) program provides training in business for students interested in understanding the working nature of business in a competitive environment. Courses in the M.B.A. program integrate information and theories from various disciplines, including accounting, economics, finance, marketing, production operations, and strategic management.
The objective of this program is to develop students into broadly educated business managers and executives who understand the nature of business as a whole, with the tools and techniques applicable to a wide variety of business situations.
The capstone for the M.B.A. program gives students the chance to bring together all of the theories, skills, and tools studied during the program and integrate them into a learning experience that highlights the nature of competition and the kind of strategic maneuvering that must be done in order to succeed. Additionally, the M.B.A. core curriculum is aligned with the content areas that are specified for the new Certified M.B.A. (CMBA) examination.

Academic policies or exceptions to policies applicable to M.B.A. students are noted under their respective general academic policies.
Areas of Emphasis
Requirements for an area of emphasis in the M.B.A. program are identical to requirements for a major in the master of arts (M.A.) program and are outlined in the Graduate Degree Options section of the Webster Graduate Catalog.
Areas of emphasis for the M.B.A. degree are
- Human Resources Management
- International Business
- International Relations
The student should consult the Locations and the M.A. and M.B.A. Majors/Emphasis and Course Descriptions sections of the Webster Graduate Catalog for the locations where areas of emphasis are offered. Not all areas of emphasis are offered at every Webster University location.
The M.B.A. requires advancement to candidacy and satisfactory completion of a minimum of 36 credit hours of M.B.A. degree coursework, or 48 credit hours of M.B.A. degree and area of emphasis coursework.
Students who require prerequisite courses may have to complete more than 36 or 48 credit hours to receive the M.B.A.
A student who holds an M.A., M.S., or an equivalent graduate degree from Webster University or from another regionally accredited college or university (or its international equivalent) may earn a sequential M.B.A. from Webster University.
Transfer credit may not be applied toward the sequential M.B.A., except as specified below.
These conditions apply to the student seeking the sequential M.B.A.:
The student must meet the core course requirements of the M.B.A. If the student enrolled in any of the M.B.A. core courses as electives in his or her M.A. program, 6 credit hours of those M.A. courses may be counted toward the 27 credit hours of M.B.A. core courses, thus reducing the M.B.A. core requirements to 21 credit hours. If more than 6 credit hours of the M.B.A. core courses were taken in the M.A. program, then substitutions will have to be made for those courses in order to fulfill the 21 remaining credit hours required for the M.B.A. degree.
Advancement to Candidacy for Sequential M.B.A.
Sequential M.B.A. degree-seeking students who received the M.A. or M.S. from Webster University will be advanced to candidacy with the initial registration.
