UoPeople has shown the world that an accredited bachelor’s degree can be accessible, affordable and have the right quality. Now we are determined to show the same can be achieved for an MBA. We realized that for many, a bachelor’s degree is not enough and there is great demand in the job market for candidates with an MBA. The cost of an MBA today is so expensive, that many people who are qualified to achieve it, cannot afford it.
UoPeople was set up to open the gates to higher education and to give an opportunity to those who don’t have it. Launching the world’s most cost-effective MBA was a natural progression for the university, and hopefully, it will pave the way for other universities to follow.
Dr. Russell S. Winer, William H. Joyce Professor of Marketing at the Stern School of Business, New York University (NYU), is UoPeople’s Dean of Business Administration and heads the new MBA program. Dr. Winer has led a stellar team to develop this groundbreaking MBA program over the past few years, and it would not have been possible without the amazing work of esteemed volunteers, such as Dr. Gabriel Hawawini of INSEAD and Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, Stephan Chambers of Oxford Saïd Business School, and Dr. Alex Tuzhilin of NYU Stern School of Business, who have all helped envision and contribute to the world class standard of this exciting MBA.
