Is This Program Right for Me?

The part-time MBA program is carefully structured for maximum impact in a course of study designed for busy, ambitious professionals. Offering the same challenging graduate education as the full-time program, our part-time MBA is a cohort-based program specially designed to accommodate working people. Students begin the program in the Summer Semester with Weatherhead's Leadership Assessment and Development course—often referred to simply as LEAD. During the course, students are placed in teams deliberately set up to include a diversity of learning styles, and they move through the three-year part-time MBA curriculum with the same group of peers.

The cohort-based format of the Weatherhead part-time MBA program allows participants to develop together as students, but also as colleagues, outside of the demands of the program. It mirrors real-life experience in a more formal setting, and encourages a strong network and lasting friendships.

Design Practices and Sustainable Value

Today's business climate is moving with the times in a socially- and environmentally-conscious direction. Companies are actively seeking solutions for combining profitability with world betterment. They're also looking for people who think beyond the default response, combining the right-brained tools of a designer with a solid command of business principles. If you're interested in studying sustainability and design in management, consider the Weatherhead MBA.

The Weatherhead part-time MBA is an exciting 48 credit-hour three-year program, emphasizing innovative core course pairings and elective options tailored to meet individual interests. In partnership with faculty and staff, you will create a personalized learning plan through our Leadership Assessment and Development (LEAD) course that combines the core curriculum and elective options into a integrated MBA degree focused on honing your general management skills.

Along with the development of your personalized learning plan, the part-time MBA curriculum features cutting edge classes in design practices and sustainable value. These classes, which incorporate design practices andsustainable business practices, will help you break from the norm of viewing every challenge through the same spreadsheet-based prism.
