If you have been considering getting an MBA but weren’t sure how to fit it all in to your current schedule, perhaps getting an MBA in the morning might help.
I ran across an article in the The Wall Street Journal online a few days ago that talked about the programs now available for people who are interested in pursuing an MBA either part time or in the morning hours. I have spoken to many women who are interested in furthering their education in business but who either aren’t sure how to fit it all in to an already hectic schedule or who don’t want to commit or simply cannot commit to full time schooling in a Master’s program.
Some colleges are running MBA programs in the morning, which might be a perfect fit for those moms who are interested in working on a business degree but who don’t have enough hours in the evening to complete one. While this may not work for those of you who are working full time, it may be an option for those who either work from home, stay at home or who work part time in a flexible job.
The three universities listed in the article included DePaul University’s Kellstadt Graduate School in Chicago, The University of Toronto’s Rotman School and Pepperdine University’s Graziadio School. Pepperdine’s program did not work when they attempted to run it only in the morning, but it has allowed the students to take up to seven years to finish an MBA, which is helpful for those of you who may not be able to do it in the traditional shorter time frame.
According to the article, 37% of those enrolled in these part time, flexible MBA programs are women.
