Web API for the backend works well, great examples exist here:
OWIN Middlware provides a good security model, OAuth2 and OpenId would be a good choice if required.
Then you can create any type of User frontend application.
You could also do everything with MVC and use a CSS framework for the frontend. Works good as well.

ASP.NET Web API is a framework that makes it easy to build HTTP services that reach a broad range of clients, including
browsers and mobile devices.
HTTP is not just for serving up web pages. It is also a powerful platform for building APIs that expose services and data. HTTP is simple, flexible, and ubiquitous. Almost any platform that you can think of has an HTTP library,
so HTTP services can reach a broad range of clients, including browsers, mobile devices, and traditional desktop applications.
For this situation, you could refer to the following links for more information about using Web Api with MVC 5:
