Georgia WebMBA

Program Overview

The online program delivers an AACSB International accredited, accelerated MBA degree with the same quality and service offered on campus.

This online Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree is offered through the Georgia WebMBA®, a consortium of AACSB-accredited schools. Emphasis is placed upon global business, human behavior, organizations, accounting, operations, marketing, finance, management information systems, and their impact on managerial decision making. The program focuses on the practical application of these tools, techniques, and concepts.

The WebMBA is a 30-hour program, requiring a student to complete 10 graduate courses. The program opens three cohorts in fall and spring with students taking two courses each semester for five consecutive semesters. This degree is 100% online.

The program is delivered by seven University System of Georgia schools, all fully accredited by AACSB International.  It was developed by a group of faculty, directors, and deans in the late 1990s to provide access to an MBA for potential students who could not attend campus programs because of driving distance, work schedule, or family obligations. The Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia approved the pilot program in 2000. Permanent status was granted in 2002.

Progression & Graduation Requirements

The Georgia WebMBA graduation requirements mirror the requirements of the home institution.  Therefore, the graduation requirements are the same as those for the Hull MBA face-to-face program at AU.

  • Hull MBA students are to maintain a 2.8 GPA or higher to remain in good academic standing, but will require a 3.0 for graduation.
  • All requirements for the Hull MBA degree must be completed within 5 consecutive years.
  • A grade of C or better required in all courses.

Additional progression requirements are listed under Additional Academic Policies in the WebMBA Student Handbook.

  1. Once students are admitted into one university, they cannot move to another university.
  2. Students in one cohort can take courses only in that cohort. Students admitted into one cohort cannot shift cohorts.
  3. Students who fail a course have options to redo the course, if a faculty member is willing to do a directed study, and if the Home Institution’s MBA Director approves it and the school policy allows it, or if there is another appropriate venue.
  4. Students who cannot continue in the program (current cohort and team) and withdraw, and then seek to be re-admitted, must be re-admitted to the program under the guidelines of his/her Home Institution. Students cannot transfer back into the program after their third consecutive semester; i.e., a student cannot withdraw during or at the end of the fourth semester, then rejoin for the fourth and/or fifth semester. Students rejoining the program must attend the orientation (paying the orientation fee again) and must work with a new team.
