Part Time MBA

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 subfields. 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.

Entry requirements to a part time MBA program will vary depending on the institution you are applying to and you are advised to speak to the university directly to gain more information. Generally, part time MBA programs will be accessible for those students who already possess an undergraduate degree in a related field, or to those who have a significant amount of business relevant work experience. Other factors may be considered for your application also such as a letter of intent, GMAT test scores and IELTS scores if your first language is not English.
Many graduates from MBA programs choose to work directly in the field of business in various industries. Those students holding an MBA degree program and returning to their job role should see natural progression to a managerial level as they will have gained many leadership and team management skills throughout the program. Common job roles include marketing manager, team leader, human resources manager, operations manager and project manager.
