Widener's AACSB accredited program provides a unique and fully integrative program for aspiring business leaders to gain the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in today's business environment.
Our integrated courses provide you with a skill set that enables you to compete in this global economy. You will learn both leadership and analytical skills. This program is not confined by the barriers of traditional business functions, but is built on the concept of process innovation for performance excellence leading to sustainable growth.
All required courses are developed and taught by a team of full-time faculty and corporate executives selected for their strength in teaching and industry knowledge. As business concepts are introduced, students learn them in view of the business process as a whole. Individual business cases are viewed throughout the program from varying business perspectives.
Within our MBA program, students have the ability to choose a concentration from the following list:
Business Process Management
Students pursuing the MSBPI program specialize in Accounting Information Systems (AIS), Business Process Innovation (BPI), or Management Information Systems (MIS). Widener University is a member of the SAP University Alliance, and students use SAP software in selected courses. Upon completion of at least three SAP related courses, students receive a Certificate of Recognition from SAP.
Enterprise Resource Planning
ERP is the backbone of a company—the infrastructure that makes everything work. Likewise, it's a valuable place to gain a competitive edge. With the ERP concentration, students learn how to select, manage, and get the most from ERP solutions, and they will earn a valuable Certificate of Recognition from SAP, one of the largest providers of ERP systems.
The field of financial planning is complex and requires knowledge of many different areas, including finance, investments, taxation, and insurance. The MBA financial planning concentration program provides the opportunity for students interested in financial planning to work toward the Certified Financial Planner designation.
Human Resource & Organizational Leadership
In this concentration, students develop leadership and human capital management skills. They acquire the competencies needed to measure and improve effectiveness at every level of the business enterprise: individual, group, and organizational.
Health Care Management
Health care is one of the largest and fastest growing industries in the U.S. It accounts for 16 percent of GDP, employs more than 13 million people, and for the next ten years will generate more jobs than any other industry. Our graduates occupy leadership positions in every major health care firm in the Greater Philadelphia region.
This concentration is designed for professionals who are interested in enhancing their knowledge of taxation and related subjects. Students must complete twelve credit hours in taxation, financial planning, or finance.
