Graduate program: Business Administration 

Program Admission Requirements:  For graduate studies in the Master of Business Administration (MBA) program, a prospective student must be above the age of 22 and have an undergraduate degree (or equivalent] in any discipline from an accredited university (or from a government approved institution, if outside the United States); a minimum of two years work experience; and meet the university’s English Proficiency Requirements listed below. Upon enrollment, a prospective student must provide a notarized copy of their degree certificate; a short resume and a certified photo identification, for admission to the program. 

Program Objective: The main purpose of Calwest University is to provide affordable high-quality American degrees to students living in all parts of the world who deserve a quality education, but were, until recently, unable to obtain such due to both costs and the tyranny of distance. Calwest proposes to provide a framework for the sequence of courses to be delivered and assessed by the university (a majority using MOOC delivery platforms for supplementary learning), so that students can work towards attaining a recognized degree at a fraction of the costs usually associated with such degree programs. Calwest will also recognize for credit the high-quality education available externally to students (via MOOCs and other learning institutions) provided the assessment of such course have been appropriately proctored.

The Master of Business Administration program’s objective is to provide holders of non-business degrees, an opportunity for a career change into general management, by providing an industry responsive program relevant to both students and the future needs of employers. Students cover the areas of business administration, accounting, finance and marketing; and many specialist electives.

Program Description: The program is geared for graduate level studies in Business Administration. Students must successfully complete 12 courses from the list below to be eligible to be awarded their graduate degree. The ‘value’ courses are compulsory and must be undertaken only via Tubeclasses at Calwest. The balance of Calwest courses in the program may be undertaken by (1) using MOOCs as supplementary course delivery vehicles; (2) undertaking approved courses proctored externally; (3) obtaining credit for recognized prior learning; and (4) challenge examinations assessed internally by Calwest University professors. The course consists of 36 credit hours.
