Benefits of an Oshkosh MBA

As an experienced professional or entrepreneur, you know learning isn’t an option - it’s a fact of life in a global marketplace. An MBA gives you an immediate and distinct advantage in any company, any industry and any economy. “MBA” is synonymous with success—at a higher level. Employers know MBA graduates seize strategic opportunities. They drive change across an organization…or halfway around the world. They have the expertise—and the degree—to command more responsibility, opportunity and earning potential. That degree is within your reach. It’s up to you to make it happen. It’s up to us to make it worth your investment - we will!

The Professional and Executive MBA Program Paths

UW Oshkosh offers two program paths – the Executive MBA and the Professional MBA.  Choose the path that fits your level of experience, career goals and time commitment.

Professional MBA:

You have real-world experience. Now it’s time to expand your level of expertise. Earn your degree on a part-time basis, generally within two to four years. With 95% of our MBA students working full-time, you can customize a learning strategy with the following options: 

Classroom: Attend evening courses during the week and network with industry peers in our convenient Oshkosh, Appleton, Green Bay or Stevens Point centers 
Online: Fit class into your life by taking classes anytime, day or night online
Hybrid: Blend the flexibility of online classes with the benefits of in-class discussion on a course-
by-course basis

Executive MBA:

Collaborate with other mid- to senior-level leaders or entrepreneurs in our centrally located UWO Appleton Executive Education Center. Focus on business strategy, leadership and globalization in this accelerated, 16-month program, designed for those with extensive business experience. Take the lessons you learn on a Saturday and apply them to your organization on Monday. The Executive MBA offers the following experiences:

  • Work closely with a group of 25 to 30 colleagues who share similar business challenges
  • Travel internationally on a 10- to 12- day study tour that will include an insider look at companies abroad
