Faculty Information

Students Say

Students enrolled in the Jack Welch Management Institute online MBA program look to the former General Electric CEO’s “winning strategies” to be passed on to them. As a “globally-recognized business leader,” Jack Welch shares his renowned “philosophy on leadership and management” by being “personally involved with the program.” Business professionals admire his “learn it today and use it tomorrow” approach, which is the foundation for his program “specifically designed toward business leadership with real world application.” One student says, “Jack Welch is a man of actions. Talk less, do more…No better foundation for a quality business program. On top of it, it’s an affordable program.” The online program allows students to take challenging yet engaging courses while still being “flexible and adaptive.” Whether they work full time, have three-year-old triplets at home, or often travel for their career, online students are able to “maintain a work/life balance.” One student says, “I am able to work ahead and that allows me to have time when disruptions come up due to normal ups and down of life.” This level of quality and convenience are undoubtedly matched in the sincere support and knowledge of JWMI’s “top notch” faculty. The professors are “highly engaged” and “really care about the students,” making sure to give “excellent feedback on assignments” and respond to students’ inquiries, often within hours or even a few minutes. Leadership techniques are taught by skilled professionals, most of whom have acquired PhDs in their respective fields, through “expert videos,” “discussion posts,” and by “breaking down the information into understandable pieces.” Students “learn from the best where [an MBA] is not just a piece of paper and forgotten knowledge.” JWMI students describe their classmates as “passionate and diverse, from all parts of the world and industries.” Having this experience from various fields of business creates a “wealth of knowledge” used to “deepen topics” in weekly discussions. The students are “a community of like-minded classmates” with the same goal: seeking to propel their own careers forward while enriching others with their “thoughtful leadership.”
