Just like the traditional full time MBA, the part time MBA is designed for professionals who wish to further their knowledge of the business field and its related sub-fields. Part time MBA courses are usually studied by students who are working full time and want to progress within their job role. Part time MBA’s are also commonly studied by those students who wish to fund their degree by their full-time work wages.
Part time MBA’s can take up to three or four years to complete and classes are usually held after the average working hours and over the weekends. Students can expect around 8 hours of teaching per week, with a few intensive weeks of lectures that take place annually throughout the course.
Modules covered are exactly the same as the full time MBA; basic business concepts, marketing, finance, economics, human resources and operations management. The only difference is that it can take double the time to complete the degree program.
