About the WebMBA

Dean's Welcome

Dr. Faye McIntyre

Likely, you are conducting due diligence for an online MBA program that you can trust for quality, that matches your financial capabilities, and that "feels" right. You have come to the right place!

Our Georgia WebMBA program was started in 2001 and we are better than ever today! The program is delivered by a consortium of six public universities in the State of Georgia. Each university is a member of the University System of Georgia, the governing body for all public institutions of higher education in this state.

Each of the consortium universities earned AACSB International accreditation years ago and each of us has earned reaccreditation since the WebMBA program began. In other words, all six universities comply with the highest quality standards in the world, as prescribed by AACSB International, the premier accrediting body for business schools worldwide.

Our cost structure is among the lowest for online MBA programs. We understand that prospective students like you are balancing (at least) three priorities in your life - family, work, and education. Work provides income, but family and education constitute expenses on your personal income statement. Raising the cost of education reduces available funding for you and your family. We have families too, and want to help you achieve career goals without breaking the bank.

Our WebMBA program is filled with success stories. Elsewhere on our web site you will find amazing statistics, such as a retention rate that averages 85 percent, and you will find testimonials from graduates of the program. Finally, upon entering the Georgia WebMBA program, you will discover that you will be treated respectfully as one of our students.

Director Angelia Huggins, the faculty, our MBA program directors and deans will get to know you as you progress through the program. You will receive letters and cards from me on a regular basis; you can email or call your professors; and you can always contact a human voice on campus.

In short, we are extremely proud of our successful WebMBA program. We define success as accepting the best students, delivering an academically rigorous curriculum, and graduating our students after five semesters of coursework.

If you are ready to be challenged and if you seek a student-centered, AACSB accredited, moderately priced, online MBA program, then I invite you to take the next step and contact Angelia, or one of the MBA Program Directors, to help you get started.

Sincerely,

Dr. Faye S. McIntyre, Lead Dean, Georgia WebMBA Program
Dean, Richards College of Business, University of West Georgia
