Graduate Programs, Business

The art of doing business is changing rapidly.

Technology has created a truly interconnected world, where the distance between markets and consumers seems closer than ever. Business professionals are finding that the practices of yesterday are coming up short.

To meet this challenge, Widener’s School of Business Administration is educating business leaders to adapt to these new real-world challenges. Through flexible programs designed for working professionals, students can complete a master’s degree on a part-time basis. Students may also study full time.
