Masters in Management Programs

Is there an order in which I should be taking my courses? Can I make any changes to that order?

You should follow your Degree Audit for your program sequence, which is located in the My Education section of the ME tab of your myWalden portal. Should you have any questions about possible adjustments to your sequence, please contact your Student Success Advisor.

How many classes do I take each semester?

Your program is designed to be taken two courses per semester, back-to-back. One class will run the first half of the semester, and the other will follow immediately after during the second half.

If you wish to double-up (take two courses at the same time), you will have to complete a petition to request permission to take the altered sequence.  Please know that many courses have prerequisites associated with them, so a request to alter your sequence may not be possible.

How long are my classes?

All the courses in your program are 8 weeks in length. You will take two per semester. Each semester is 16 weeks in length, usually with a one-week break every 16 weeks.

Can I change my specialization or add a second one?

If you wish to change your specialization, please email your Student Success Advisor to request the change of specialization. Advising recommends specialization changes are done prior to starting your specialization courses as courses taken for one specialization may not transfer to another specialization.

If you’d like to add a second specialization, please email your advisor for assistance. You will need to complete your initial program of study first, and then once you complete your capstone, you will then take the additional three specialization courses. You should apply for graduation at the start of your last specialization course.

Changing your specialization may lengthen the time before you are able to complete your program. Please contact Financial Aid with any questions you might have related to the length of your program and your aid eligibility.

Do I need to initiate registration for my courses?

Students in the MS Management programs are automatically registered for their courses each semester by our Registrations department provided students do not have any holds on their account that prevent registration. If you are not registered at least 4 weeks prior to the next semester start, and you do not have a hold on your account, please contact Student Success Advising for assistance in getting registered.

My degree audit says a class is “Unavailable” – what does that mean?

When a degree audit says that a course is unavailable it means that course is currently not available for online registration. It does not necessarily mean that registration for that course is not possible. If a course shows as unavailable in your degree audit, please send a written request to your Student Success Advisor who can verify the availability of the course and process your request if the course is available.

Who can I talk to about the PMP Certificate Exam?

Please contact PMP directly for any questions about the certificate exam. For more information about PMP please visit their website.

Can I receive a Certificate in Business Management along the way towards completing my Masters?

You will need to apply for graduation for the certificate in order to receive the certificate. Note: If you do not request the certificate prior to applying for graduation from your Masters program, you will not be able to request the certificate retroactively.
