Building a Connected Community of Online Learners

The Center for Online Learning is committed to providing high-quality online educational opportunities that support a connected community of principled leaders in business. Driven by a student-first philosophy, we build on William & Mary's tradition of delivering engaging and applicable real-world experiences. Our faculty are leaders and researchers in their respective fields, and their distinctive and innovative contributions to our programs find them consistently ranked among the top universities in the nation. Our students are intellectually curious and eager to form connections that last a lifetime. We are passionate about delivering them an exceptional online business education and we are proud that our graduates leave their Mason School experience with the knowledge and skills needed to thrive in a rapidly evolving global business environment. The number of students being admitted into our online programs continues to grow as our portfolio expands, and the diversity they bring to the virtual classroom enhances their learning experience immeasurably.

Access to Top-Ranked Business Education

The Center is instrumental in not only providing access to world-class education but delivering an unparalleled experience that is driven by a student-first philosophy. This philosophy is not about taking an on-campus program and reverse engineering it for online delivery. Rather we approach our online degree programs by first considering the needs of online learners who want to excel in business careers. The result is outstanding curriculum, experiences, and learning outcomes you expect from William & Mary.

Full Throttle Efforts

We never take our foot off the gas when it comes to collaborating with faculty on program development, identifying strategic partners, assessing global marketplace needs, and ensuring students and faculty are positioned for success. Our efforts are driven by researching internal and external factors to make informed, conscious decisions that fuel professional growth.
