Is this a pass/fail program or are there grades?

No, it is not a pass/fail program.

There are grades issued for each course based on the number of points that you earned.

Can I miss a class?

Yes, missing a few classes throughout the program is expected. We understand students have personal and professional commitments that sometimes occur on the weekends. Most students prefer not to miss too many classes but when it is required, that’s when mini-executive teams come in handy. Your team members will be able to share their class notes with you, let you know about anything you’ve missed or that may be due the following week, and can assist you in understanding the classroom materials.

Is the international study tour required?

Yes, it is an important learning experience that the cohort engages in together.

The international study tour spans two countries and typically has 4 business visits in each country as well as cultural experiences.

Are there internship opportunities?

Internships are rare at the graduate level. The majority of our students work full-time while earning the degree, so there isn’t a need to develop a formal internship program for our students. Our students are eligible to work with the UWO Career Services department to explore internships and/or job prospects.

Why does the Executive MBA Program cost more than the MBA Professional program?

The tuition for the Executive MBA Program is competitively priced compared to other Executive offerings, while providing exceptional value for participants and Wisconsin organizations.

The cost was set after extensive research was done by the UW Oshkosh MBA Office with close collaboration of almost 500 executives in Northeast and North Central Wisconsin.
