Many professionals, like Randi Glazer, have found that earning their MBA degree helps them achieve their career goals, like getting a promotion, raise, or new opportunity. But it can be difficult for some working professionals to manage a full working schedule and go back to school to further their education. Thankfully, many MBA programs take this into consideration and offer unique programs to fit into busy schedules. There are program schedules to fit almost every schedule, some that offer classes on weekends or at night, and online classes.
Below are some of the MBA programs that may be available, depending on the school and area.
Full-Time MBA Program
This program’s classes fall within the normal school year, beginning in August or September and ending in May with breaks for winter holidays and summer. Classes are typically on weekends and the program usually requires 60 credits or approximately 600 class hours of work.
Accelerated MBA Program
This program has the same amount of work required as a typical full-time MBA program, but in a shorter timeline, typically around a year. This means students have less time off between semesters, so no long summer or winter breaks. This can be a great option for those trying to watch costs because they may not be as expensive as a normal program. They do however require more time and effort from the student because of the accelerated timeline.
Part-Time MBA Program
This is a great option for working professionals because classes are typically held at on week nights or weekends so they won’t interfere with a work schedule. Because most of the students in these classes are working professionals, they have a lighter course load, giving students the ability to balance work and school. This does mean the duration of classes is longer though, typically around three years. There are also programs that offer a full-time workload at night and on weekends for professionals that want to finish their degree quicker.
Many of the programs offer classes online or a combination of online and in class so students can better balance work and school. Randi Glazer is proud to have earned her MBA.
