William and Mary School of Business

Why W&M MBA?

The rigor of the Mason School’s 2-year Full-Time MBA program will provide you the theoretical knowledge and practical experience you need to pursue leadership positions in any organization. And with the William & Mary name on your résumé, you’ll be recognized as a member of a uniquely talented and committed community.

A Degree Tailored to Your Goals
Your education needs are as unique as your career goals, and Mason’s Full-Time MBA lets you further refine those goals. In our Career Acceleration Modules, you’ll complete two 7-week immersions that allow you to test drive different business specialties. Our Concentrations will help you target a different career. Our newest innovation — the Paths of Distinction — puts you in a highly specialized curriculum in emerging fields: health sector and real estate.

A Global Perspective
Through Juntos, you’ll participate in student-led study and discussion groups to learn about business while exploring the world. You’ll also apply concepts you study in the classroom to current economic and geopolitical issues, and gain meaningful leadership and team-building experience. William & Mary’s Global Business Immersions will take you on international trips to NGOs, banks, technology giants and other institutions to get a deeper understanding of another country’s economy and culture. 

Hands-On Consulting and Investment Experience
Get a deeper understanding of the concepts you learn in the classroom by putting them to work right away. Field Consultancy Projects put you and your classmates to work helping regional companies solve real business problems. As an analyst for the Batten Fund, you’ll research investment opportunities for Mason’s $500,000 student-managed stock portfolio. 

Executive Coaching
The Mason School’s Executive Partners are an energetic network of active and retired business executives from more than 20 different industries. Your Executive Partner will be a sounding board for your ideas, help you hone your leadership skills, and provide advice on what companies look for when they hire MBA program graduates.

World-Class Faculty
Thanks to the quality of their research, the depth of their industry experience and commitment to teaching, the Mason School’s business faculty is consistently ranked among the top 10 in the nation by The Princeton Review and gets an A+ from Businessweek. And because Mason’s Full-Time MBA classes are small compared to other business schools, you’ll have exceptional access to and attention from these leading business thinkers.
