A Krannert Weekend MBA bestows more than mere credentials. It equips professionals to solve the world’s toughest business challenges and provides the incomparable advantage of lifelong opportunities. Few part-time programs as prestigious as Purdue’s offer a preeminent MBA degree at a pace that caters to your busy lifestyle. The program’s family-friendly, alternating Friday and Saturday class schedule, prepares you to lead tomorrow while leaving time for the people and moments that matter to you today.

The program includes an international experience for students, providing firsthand knowledge of international business customs and practices — an indispensable tool in an always-evolving environment of global business.

Classes are taught by the faculty of the Krannert Graduate School of Management, as well as selected visiting faculty members. All are senior-level professionals well-known for their research, who also bring practical experience working with business firms and governmental agencies in a variety of roles.

The Weekend MBA classes are held on Purdue’s West Lafayette campus, the architectural award-winning Rawls Hall. Rawls Hall houses 13 electronically-equipped classrooms, a multimedia-based auditorium, 25 breakout rooms, distance learning facilities, and sophisticated computer labs. Naturally-lighted commons areas offer inviting meeting spaces and panoramic views of Purdue’s campus and are conveniently reserved for Weekend MBA meals.

Rather than squeezing in weeknight classes after a full day’s work, the Krannert Weekend MBA dedicates a day and a half to focus on enhancing your education, skills, and opportunities. And when you return to work, you can easily apply all that you’ve learned.

Requirements:

The Krannert Weekend MBA admissions office considers an applicant’s academic record, employment experience, and history (with general expectations of at least three years of experience), employer recommendations, and, for certain applicants, GMAT or TOEFL scores. Online application forms must be completed, and a personal interview may be required.

As a world class management school, Purdue seeks to recruit top applicants. The Krannert School of Management strives to enroll a student body with a variety of skills and backgrounds that will work together to foster personal and professional growth in a dynamic learning environment. Applicants may request a GMAT waiver if they meet the following criteria: 3+ years of work experience & B average undergrad GPA. Those wishing to request a waiver should indicate their desire on the 3rd optional essay within the application.

To succeed in its mission, the admissions committee undertakes a holistic admission review process, considering many different elements.  Our review of your application begins with an emphasis on the following factors:

  • Quality and quantity of work experience
  • Record of prior academic and professional training
  • Test scores

These factors help us determine your ability to take on the challenges of a master’s program.  Just as important, we look at your ability to contribute to the program and Krannert’s ability to help you reach your personal and professional goals. For that reason, we also ask applicants for:

  • Recommendations (2)
  • Essays
  • Current Professional Resume
  • Information about community involvement
  • Interview feedback

Your Application Review

In order to fully facilitate the review of each candidate’s application, the admissions committee can render an admission decision only after receiving all required application materials, as within the online application and explained in more detail on the Application Requirementspage. Subsequently, the Krannert School of Management and Purdue University require that all transcripts, documents, and supporting materials be fully authentic and therefore, we reserve the right to require verification.

Program Costs:

The total program fee for a Weekend MBA from Purdue is $59,000.*
