Widener's faculty are committed to helping students tailor their MBA curriculum to their career goals. Students have the option to immerse themselves in their comprehensive general business administration track, or concentrate their studies in one of two emerging areas of business leadership: Business Process Innovation or Health Care Management. Students also have the option to pursue a Dual Degree to obtain both a Master of Jurisprudence in Corporate and Business Law and a Master of Business Administration (MJ/MBA).
Widener's online Master in Social Work (MSW) program is accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) and prepares graduates to sit for the Licensed Social Worker (LSW) exam. By pursuing Widener's trauma-focused graduate degree, students will have the option to obtain their trauma certification, as well.

Being ranked among the best in the nation, Widener is committed to connecting students with community partners and open doors to roles where they can create meaningful change throughout their community and profession. Online students will still be part of Widener's community. They have the opportunity to participate in a variety of optional events hosted virtually or on-campus.
