Full-Time Perks, Part-Time Schedule

Advance your career or pivot to a new one—without leaving your full-time job. Part time MBA students have access to the same courses, faculty members, experiential learning opportunities, intensity tracks, concentrations, and centers and institutes as full time students—with the added benefit of flexible course formats.

Ramp up or slow down your schedule based on what’s going on in your personal and professional life. Five start dates throughout the year and the option to study 100% online make it easy for you to begin your MBA when and where it’s convenient for you. Whether online or in person, each class has a dedicated technology assistant, ensuring everyone can participate in lively discussions.

While most students complete the program in three years, on average, you can complete it in as few as 18 months.

Part Time MBA Curriculum

Build the entrepreneurial mindset, strategic management skills, and global network you need to excel professionally while putting what you learn into practice right away. Experiential learning and action-based classes, including real-world consulting projects, give you the confidence to ask questions about tomorrow, and the insights needed to answer them today.

Nine core classes ground you in business fundamentals, while the rest of your MBA is customized to align with your goals and passions. Choose from seven concentrations, or seven intensity tracks, in addition to experiential learning opportunities, that enable you to focus on areas of interest.
