Students can complete the MBA program on a full- or part-time basis. Full-time students are normally admitted in September. Part-time studies allow students to continue working while pursuing their MBA.
As defined by the School of Graduate Studies, a full-time graduate student is “one who registers as such, devotes full time to his or her academic program and may not commit more than 24 hours a week working time, including teaching assistant or research assistant duties, to matters other than the degree program."
The School of Graduate Studies defines a part-time graduate student as “one who is registered for the duration of a semester and not classified as full-time.” To the extent that resources allow, a number of classes are offered in the evening, early morning and during normal lunch hours. Admission for part-time students can take place for September, January or May.
Students may change from full-time to part-time status and vice versa as their circumstances require.
