I know this was the right program for me. If someone was wondering if Widener was the right place for their MBA, I would just say go for it.

Li Lock presented their findings to Widener peers and faculty.

I knew pretty quickly that I wanted to go to the program at Widener. I’d heard it was a reputable program at an accredited university, and after learning about the range of backgrounds of the faculty and their research interests, I knew this was the place

Whether presenting results or making recommendations, with my experience at Widener, I can speak the language. I don't think I would be as effective at what I do now without that experience.

More Than Just Professors

Close and Personal

At its best, learning is a two-way exchange, an ongoing conversation. Our professors provide constant, continual feedback that helps you improve your writing, thinking, research, and clinical skills. They teach and then they mentor. This investment takes considerable time and energy. Our professors think it's worth it.

Career Building

Deeply Connected

Our size is just right for developing relationships. Big enough to find mentors who share your interests and understand your goals. Small enough for you to find your way into a professor's lab for research collaboration. Relationships matter moving forward. Your Widener professors will be resources for life.

They link you with relevant internships, co-ops, and research opportunities. They put you in touch with Widener alumni in your field, people who are able (and eager) to help you get started.
