The Online MBA Experience
We didn’t take an on-ground program and retrofit. Instead, we built the JWMI MBA experience with online learners in mind, so that they can achieve the best possible outcome in the program and their careers.
The mission of the Jack Welch Management Institute is to transform the lives of our students by providing them with the tools to become better leaders, build great teams and help their organizations win. By teaching the performance- and people-driven management canons of Jack Welch and other renowned business leaders, the Jack Welch Management Institute prepares MBA graduates to revolutionize their companies and careers.
The JWMI Online Classroom Experience—What to Expect
There is often a mix of excitement, nerves, and anticipation that are present as you embark on your first term. For many, a 100% online classroom may be a new experience. Or you may have been out of school for a while. Here’s what you can expect:
Classes are taught 100% online in small sections of 15-20 students.
Blackboard is our online platform; there you will review the weekly assignments, watch video lectures, access course materials, interact with fellow students, receive feedback from your professors, access the online video library and much more.
JWMI students are active learners juggling busy lives from all corners of the world. So, speed and efficiency, no matter where you live, is critical. The Blackboard mobile app allows students to:
Quickly view updates to their courses and content through the activity stream
Access the weekly lecture, readings, and EOP videos
Reply to discussion questions and take assignments and tests
View course grades for discussions and assignments
Interact with your courses while you’re on the go
Weekly Time Commitments
JWMI classes are held online and asynchronously, designed to be done on your own time. Each class can vary for time commitments, but you should estimate 10–15 hours of coursework per class.
Weekly required discussion questions allow for one-on-one interaction with professors and other students about the required reading, lecture notes, or case studies. Each week, students will be required to thoughtfully respond to one discussion question (DQ) within our discussion board. This initial response to the question posed is due every Wednesday by midnight. Also, as part of your participation grade, each student is required to respond to at least two students’ discussion posts by Sunday at midnight (local time)
In addition to your discussion questions, there are usually 2-3 assignments or video presentations due each term. Your professors, advisor, communication coach, or tutor are available for support as you work on your assignments.
