Live-streamingSince March 2020, nearly all WPMBA courses have been live-streamed as well as recorded for later access. While this was done as an absolute necessity during our time away from campus, these new ways to access our course material have added welcome flexibility for all of our students even as we begin to return to the classroom.

  • We intend to continue live-streaming/recording many of our courses
  • The formal approval process for an online option has begun. Meanwhile, quality coursework will continue to be available online to both new and current students.
  • Flexibility for students outside of Columbus, but also for anyone unable to attend in-person on a given day
  • Our goal with this added flexibility is to help you create a program that fits your needs
