Project-Based MBA (Online)

You need MBA skills and abilities to achieve your career goals. You also have life and professional commitments that prohibit you from coming to campus on a regular basis to attend classes. Westminster College's Project-based MBA program is designed for you. The MBA project-based online program is designed around building mastery of the skills and abilities executives needs to become a leader in their chosen field.

When you complete your MBA, what you know is important, but what you can DO with what you know is critical to your career success—that is what the Project-based MBA program is all about. Instead of taking courses, you complete cross-disciplinary projects using skills and abilities you've already mastered, along with the learning we provide to you using cutting-edge education technology. While you work on a project, you have a full-time Westminster College faculty member who serves as your coach to help you build and demonstrate your mastery.


The projects you are completing look just like the work executives do on a day-to-day basis, and are real projects you do using real business situations:

  • External firm analysis

  • Segmenting and targeting markets
  • Industry financial analysis
  • Process review and revision
  • Corporate governance and fiduciary responsibility
  • Internal firm analysis
  • Developing and implementing strategy
  • Balanced Scorecard
  • Business Plan for a new product or service (for your firm or for a firm you'd like to start)
  • Financial pro-formae for new products/services

See a complete list of projects here.

Being an executive is not just about business concepts, it's also about managing projects, leading teams, facilitation & negotiation, presentation ability, writing ability, as well as many more. While completing projects in this program, you will be learning and building your skills in these areas.



Our fixed price model means that you know the full price of the program at the beginning. All class materials, fees, and a required 10 day international trip are included in the fixed price. There are no annual tuition increases in the Westminster MBA program. The price is truly fixed.



Many students can complete the program in 18-24 months, depending on your availability, drive, and focus. During the program, you will complete a total of 25 different projects. When you've completed those 25 projects, you'll have demonstrated that you are a master on over 80 different business and executive skills, often multiple times. Since each project is directly connected to a subset of business/executive skills, you'll continue to improve your ability to apply through the program. When you are done, you will have mastered everything a traditional MBA program student knows and far beyond.

Since you are moving at your own speed (within a semester), you may choose to move faster through the projects, if your life permits. No problem, we'll keep you moving forward as you work with your faculty coach.
