MBA Program

MBA Program Closure Experience

As your Washburn MBA program winds down you will be asked to analyze the contents of your academic portfolio and write a reflective essay.

Portfolio Contents

Your portfolio will have at least one work sample from each upper-level required course, as specified by the instructor.   

Reflective Essay

After reviewing your portfolio you will be asked to evaluate and explain how well you achieved each of the MBA program’s goals. You will also review your first portfolio piece, written during the program orientation, to reflect on whether your initial goals and expectation were met. All students are asked to complete the essay during finals week of the graduating semester.

Use of Reflective Essays

The MBA Director will aggregate the reflective essays and report these results to the MBA faculty.  The director and faculty use these results to assess the effectiveness of the MBA curriculum.
