Individualized Learning When and Where You Want

Meeting the needs of students — locally and globally — has remained a top priority for Webster University for more than 100 years. Our online programs offer the same high-quality instruction as our traditional on-ground classes, and our online students are an active, diverse and vibrant part of our community.


Earn the same prestigious degree, diploma, and educational foundation you're seeking from anywhere in the world. 


Choose from one of our three online modalities to see how online learning can work for you. Our modalities range from fully asynchronous to fully synchronous, so you can choose the way you prefer to learn. Webster University offers opportunities to fit your lifestyle that will help lead you to a fulfilling and successful career.

WebNet+ is our online program delivery platform that connects you with your peers and professors in a “live” course environment. Your instruction will be fully live through videoconferencing, class will meet at a set time, and your classmates may join either from their homes or from a campus location. WEBNET+

Webster’s new LiveVirtual modality provides students with the best of the online and classroom experience. In LiveVirtual classes, a portion of your work will be completed online, and each week you will have a short class meeting with your professor and classmates, via teleconferencing software. This modality is ideal for students who appreciate the self-management aspects of traditional online classes, but also want opportunities for real-time interaction and discussion with their professor.

Asynchronous online courses allow you to work from any location, at times that are convenient to you. All course content is accessed through WorldClassRoom. Courses replicate the Webster classroom experience in a fully online format, providing interaction between faculty and students without requiring a specific class meeting time.

Convenient Learning to Fit Your Individual Needs

For more than 100 years, Webster has provided our students with the tools, resources, and skills necessary to become experts in their chosen career fields. In 1999, we launched our first online program, in direct response to student needs. As lives became busier and schedules less predictable, many of our students were seeking the flexibility of online learning … and we were prepared to provide it.


Online undergraduate, graduate, and certificate programs

The Master of Business Administration is one of our most popular degrees,
and how you earn it can be personalized to fit your schedule and life.

“I like that each term you can be in person, but if you have a busy schedule, you can go online. And the professors are always there for you to make sure you succeed.”

Our students can start their degree at one location and finish it at another, or seamlessly work on their degree while studying abroad.
