Delivery Modes - Working Professional MBA

Multiple class sections offer flexibility

The Working Professional MBA is one cohesive program. As a part-time student, select from two to three sections of each core course taught either in-person, through distance learning (online) or hybrid. The choice is yours Earn the degree in-person, online or a mix of both.

Students enrolling in-person in the Working Professional MBA (WPMBA) will receive the same nationally recognized classroom experience but now have the flexibility to take online classes as needed. Students can select from available class sections (in-person, distance, hybrid) of the desired core class offering to personalize their schedule. Learn more about electives.

Courses available to Online Working Professional MBA students vary in their delivery method. Some sections of courses may be delivered in a hybrid model, with the instructor and in-person students in the classroom, while online students livestream and engage and ask questions just like the students on campus. Other class sections are delivered entirely in a distance learning format, with no physical classroom and all students meeting with the professor online. Online courses include a combination of synchronous and asynchronous content. Fisher values real-time interactions as an important part of your MBA experience. Online students can also take in-person courses if it both fits their schedule and their ability to attend physical classes on-campus.

Program structure and curriculum


Synchronous (live): Virtually attend class sessions at the same time as your instructor and classmates. Recordings are available in most cases.

Asynchronous (self-paced): Learn on your own schedule within a certain timeframe.

Students can expect a mix of courses that are synchronous and asynchronous, which are supported by video modules and recorded class sessions. Self-paced, asynchronous content is accessible 24/7, providing greater flexibility that fits your schedule while keeping you connected to campus.
