Two Ways to Learn

In addition to the course-based Master of Business Administration, we offer a competency-based option. With Tempo Learning™ by Walden, you can earn your degree on your own schedule, at your own pace, building on your existing skills, knowledge, and experience. Learn more about the competency-based Master of Business Administration.


Preset course start and end dates help you manage your schedule over time. Knowing these dates makes it easier to plan ahead in completing your program.

The course-based approach exposes you to new material as well as reinforces and updates your knowledge in areas you’ve already mastered.

Your fellow students will be learning the same material at the same time, so if you find yourself struggling, you can connect with them for additional support.



Complete competencies at your own pace, based on your ability to demonstrate understanding of their content. At the beginning of each term, you will map out your learning goals in partnership with your Academic Coach.

You can use what you already know to accelerate your progress, potentially saving you time and money.

If you find materials challenging, you can slow down and spend additional time with them. You can also raise your hand to get support directly from our Faculty Subject Matter Experts.
