Walden University Introduces New Tempo Learning™ Competency-Based Programs
Online MBA and MHA degree programs for working professionals offered in a self-paced educational platform
Minneapolis—April 11, 2016—Walden University, a pioneer in online education, is introducing two new programs offered through Tempo Learning™, its self-paced educational experience for students who want to earn their degree on their terms. In the competency-based Master of Business Administration (MBA) and Master of Healthcare Administration (MHA) programs, students can progress at their own pace by applying their existing knowledge and prior experience while focusing on mastering the new skills they need to meet the demands of the workforce.
Tempo Learning is composed of competencies and rigorous assessments that have been designed by faculty and validated by employers—creating a direct link between education and the workplace. Students receive individualized help from faculty members and academic coaches while working on their own to pass assessments designed to reflect the needs of the workplace. Successful students can demonstrate their learning and speed their progress toward earning their degree. Unlike traditional degree programs, where time and cost are fixed, Tempo Learning gives students the ability to accelerate their learning and reduce the cost of their degree.
“Our new competency-based MBA and MHA programs will give students the timely skills and knowledge they need to apply at work. We developed our Tempo Learning programs with the help of industry and academic experts in business and healthcare to create a unique learning experience. Now, students will spend less time on what they already know and use their professional experience—with support from Walden faculty—to advance more quickly toward completing their degree,” said Jonathan Kaplan, president of Walden.
Jobs for medical and health services administrators and managers are projected to grow 17% from 2014 to 2024, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Walden’s online, competency-based MHA program is designed to help students prepare to meet the demand for effective, visionary healthcare leaders, as they develop skills and knowledge to apply immediately to advance their career in this rapidly changing field. Competencies touch on all facets of healthcare administration, from laws and ethics, to operations management and human resources, to financial management and strategic planning.
Walden’s ACBSP-accredited competency-based Master of Business Administration (MBA) program will launch with a specialization in Project Management. The program is designed to provide working professionals and entrepreneurs with the vital business and leadership skills they need to keep up with the pace of innovation in an increasingly global market. This self-paced online program allows students to learn and advance by mastering a series of competencies grouped in areas of expertise including innovation for growth, leadership and management, systems and performance, strategic and financial management, and project management.
Walden’s initial Tempo Learning™ offering, a competency-based MS in Early Childhood Studies with a specialization in Administration, Management and Leadership, is the nation’s first online competency-based master’s program in early childhood using a direct assessment model.
