Webster University Opens New Location in Rogers, Arkansas
Webster is relocating its Fayetteville location to Rogers

FAYETTEVILLE, ARKANSAS – Webster University is moving.

Webster, which has held classes in Fayetteville for the past 20 years and in the same location for the past decade, will relocate 20 miles north to the Center for Nonprofits at St. Mary’s in Rogers, Arkansas so that it can better serve the students and the community. The new location opens tomorrow, Aug. 7, 2018.

“We have a number of students who work for the major companies in that region who are pursuing master’s degrees to further advance their careers,” said Mike Gibbs, director of the Northwest Arkansas locations. “This will cut their commute time and also make it easier for others in the community to access higher education and earn a graduate degree.”

Webster has a long history of responding to the needs of communities, Gibbs said, and it was determined that those who lived or worked more than 30 minutes north of Fayetteville had difficulties in accessing graduate programs that easily accommodated a working person’s schedule.

Currently, Webster offers four master’s programs on site: an MBA, a master’s in Human Resources, a master’s in Management and Leadership, and a master’s in Finance which can also be earned as a dual Finance-MBA degree. Besides the on-site classes, Webster’s Arkansas program also offers 13 graduate and undergraduate degrees through its online classrooms.

The new location is at 1200 West Walnut St., Suite 1300, Box 29, Rogers, Arkansas, 72756. Classes will start at that location during the week of Aug. 20, the start of Webster’s fall term. Webster chose this summer to make the move from Fayetteville as its 10-year lease for the current location expires in September. Webster University has been serving Northwest Arkansas for nearly 20 years.
