May I transfer credits from another institution?
An MBA student may transfer-in a maximum of nine (9) credit hours or three (3) courses. These courses must be taken at an accredited MBA program. The student must submit course syllabi and other requested documentation as requested by the MBA Program. Requesting and submitting materials is no guarantee that courses may be transferred-in. Finally, transferred courses may only be accepted for core curriculum requirement – and not for track-specific courses.
Who should I contact to answer questions about the MBA program?
Contact Graduate Admissions Counselor Mona McAuliffe at firstname.lastname@example.org or (330) 490-7406.

How long will it take to complete the MBA program?
The Walsh MBA program offers four specialties: Management, Healthcare Management, Entrepreneurship, and Marketing. The Management and Healthcare Management specialties can be completed either online or in-class in about 12 months. The Entrepreneurship and Marketing specialties can be completed via a combination of online and traditional class structure in about 24 months.
Is the MBA Program accredited?
Yes. The MBA Program, like all Walsh University programs, is accredited by the North Central Association. The program is also accredited by the IACBE, International Association of Collegiate Business Education, a specialized accrediting body.
Do I have to have an undergraduate degree in a business related area?
No. An undergraduate business degree is not required. In fact, the MBA Program attracts students from a wide range of educational backgrounds and career experiences including social service agencies, health care facilities, government agencies and educational institutions.
However, if you do not have an undergraduate degree in a business related area, you will need to demonstrate or acquire competency in the functional areas of business (accounting, finance, economics, quantitative analysis and statistics). There are several ways to demonstrate these competencies. The MBA program director works closely with students to determine the best method for demonstrating or acquiring competencies in these areas.
