Credentials for Leadership in Management and Business

CLIMB is a unique alternative to the traditional method of earning an undergraduate degree. CLIMB serves the needs of adult learners where students engage in structured approaches to developing solutions to real-world problems. CLIMB is for all accelerated nontraditional degree options at Wilberforce University, serving adults ages 23 and older who have already completed a minimum of 45 semester hours of college with a cumulative 2.0 GPA or better.

The adult learners are typically employed full-time; thus, CLIMB offers flexible evening courses in the following formats: Online, Campus or Blended. Each of our degree options are one night per week over an 18-month period to provide the adult learner with the opportunity to earn the requisite semester hours of credit. We value prior knowledge, work experience and technical training and students are eligible to receive additional semester hours of credit through the required prior learning portfolio process

Experiential Credit

Credit of a technical and professional nature may be awarded to CLIMB students for non-collegiate training, employment, and life-learning experiences through a Portfolio Curriculum. Students Identify their experiences in a mandatory essay format, as well as documenting all appropriate credentials in a portfolio for evaluation. Must enroll for PLA 415 when offered.
