MBA Programs for Working Professionals
Scholarship Opportunities for Part-Time MBA Students!
For many people considering an MBA, personal and professional commitments
require options that work around their full-time schedules. Each of Smith’s
part-time MBA programs is designed with an emphasis on quality and a commitment
to the program flexibility that best suits your lifestyle. The program requires
54 intense, focused credits for degree completion.
The Evening MBA
The Evening MBA is structured for students whose schedules would best be
supported by evening classes and activities. Complete the program in 30-36
months in one of three locations: Washington, D.C., Shady Grove (Rockville), or
Classes generally meet two nights a week, either Mondays and Wednesdays or
Tuesdays and Thursdays. During the first half of the program, students take core
classes at their home campus – Washington, D.C., Shady Grove, or Baltimore.
Electives may be taken at any of these three Smith campuses.
The Weekend MBA
Prospective MBA students who are looking for a part-time option other than
weekday evenings need look no further than the Weekend MBA.
It’s an ideal option/schedule for those whose work or weekday schedule won’t
accommodate evening classes. Like the Evening MBA, the Weekend MBA program can
be completed in 30 – 36 months at our Washington, D.C. location. In the core
curriculum, students meet approximately 33-36 Saturdays a year. This works out
to three out of four Saturdays per month.
The MBA programs for working professionals at Smith are for those who will
not accept anything less than a nationally ranked,
marketable MBA with a strategic
faculty, and a
diverse student body.
Program Flexibility and Opportunities to Accelerate
Students can earn Smith's MBA as an Evening student, a Weekend student, or a
combination of the two programs at any of our three convenient campuses. Smith's
MBA can be earned in as few as twenty-one months or as long as five years. Since
2005, over one-quarter of Smith's part-time MBA students have earned their MBA
in 28 months or less; nearly three-quarters in 33 months or less.
