School Data

The Wake Forest MBA: What You Need To Know

The Wake Forest School of Business focuses on entrepreneurial approaches to business problems. In 2014, Wake Forest decided to shut down its Full-Time MBA program. In its place, the school began offering three part-time programs. These include the Evening and Saturday MBA programs in Charlotte and the Working Professionals MBA in Winston-Salem. With so many options available, the Wake Forest MBA is designed to fit the schedules of working professionals.

All students follow a lockstep curriculum and complete their MBA in two years. Concentrations in Business Analytics, Strategy & Leadership, and Finance are offered. The school’s career concentrations build on the foundation of functional skills developed during the first year of the program and focus on preparing students for their careers. Students may choose to forgo a concentration and instead pursue a general MBA by choosing electives that fortify their career interests and goals.
