Making your education work
Just because you’re a professional doesn’t mean there’s nothing left to learn.
For too long, industry and education have existed in distinct vacuums – where learners and doers were kept at a distance, by conventional standards. But as the pace of the economy accelerates, there’s no time to stop to absorb new skill sets and remain relevant.
Luckily, Colorado’s educational landscape – encompassing both traditional and alternative programs – now allows professionals to work and learn simultaneously.
Here are a variety of offerings, from ala carte options to immersive schooling for adults looking to bulk up their knowledge and advance their careers.
Colorado State University- Global Campus
Colorado State University-Global Campus offers career-relevant bachelor’s and master’s degree programs built for working adults. Classes Anytime, Anywhere: 100% online format with no set class times allows you to work towards your goals without putting other priorities on hold.
Career Relevant: Our classes are full of information that you can apply at work the very next day; improving your workplace success from the moment you enroll.
Tuition Guarantee: Once you enroll at CSU-Global, your tuition is locked in and your rate will never increase as long as you stay enrolled.

Webster University has provided innovative higher education to residents and military personnel in the Denver metropolitan area since 1974. Webster has been an innovative pioneer in education for career-minded professionals providing graduate programs in convenient format that meets the needs of working adults.
Founded in 1915, Webster University is a traditional non-profit institution committed to delivering high-quality learning experiences that transform students for global citizenship and individual excellence. With its home campus in the St. Louis suburb of Webster Groves, Mo., Webster serves more than 20,000 students through a network of 100+ campuses worldwide and on-line.
Olin Business School Executive MBA Program
Imagine a management education that prepares you for business without blind spots. A curriculum that turns you into a systems thinker, with an integrated view of your enterprise. And a network that opens doors for you in organizations around the world.
Washington University’s Olin Business School Executive MBA program delivers all three.
“As a WashU EMBA student, I acquired a strategic outlook on decision making that allowed me to stretch beyond relationship and portfolio management,” says Nick Lane, senior vice president of Colorado Business Bank.
WashU founded the program more than three decades ago, and, over the years, has expanded its EMBA campuses from St. Louis to Kansas City, Denver, Shanghai, and Mumbai. Classes for the 20-month domestic program meet one time a month for a three-day session in addition to four strategically timed residencies.
The program kicks off in St. Louis with GO! Week, the first residency and the foundation of your EMBA experience. Denver-campus students go back Denver for the curriculum’s core courses. The Business of Policy: DC Immersion—a residency that leverages WashU’s unique partnership with the Brookings Institution—complements the core curriculum and is another year one highlight.
Year two takes you back to St. Louis for the weeklong Leadership Residency and for the integrated business themes: Growth, Global Markets, and Innovation and Entrepreneurship. Working in teams, you and your classmates develop a new-venture idea and business plan. You also travel to Beijing and Shanghai for the program’s final residency where you explore the intersection of business and government on a global platform.
A capstone pitch competition requires you to synthesize program teachings and tools. Company executives, potential investors, Executive MBA alumni, and university faculty members judge the competition to conclude your 20-month experience.
