We are continuing to explore

We are continuing to explore an MBA degree and are especially excited about its possibilities since it will offer tracks and hands-on experiences not typically offered in a traditional MBA program. These anticipated tracks are a result of extensive market research. The faculty in our Business, Accounting, and Economics Department are excited about developing the curriculum and sharing their expertise and talents in this new program. Stay tuned.

Is Another MBA program needed?

The thought of Nebraska Wesleyan University offering an MBA is troubling. There are many such programs already in existence, especially at small schools like Wesleyan. The major benefit of an MBA for institution offering such a program is the generation of review. In fact many schools do extremely well with their online programs.

What is Wesleyan's goal here? To claim they are feeling a need seems to be off base since the Omaha and Lincoln markets are already covered with several very good options. Is this new program to be covered by tenure track Wesleyan faculty or adjuncts? These are important questions to ask since the answers have strong implications for the quality of the business and economics education at Wesleyan

The decision by Wesleyan to move into the MBA market raises a lot of questions about the school's ability to continue offering high quality undergraduate education while trying to extend itself into an already competitive market.
