How the Part-Time Flex MBA Works

Obtain the skills you need to advance your career while never leaving it.


The Tepper School Part-Time Flex MBA is not like other Pittsburgh-based MBA programs. We deliver the same rigorous curriculum as our top-ranked full-time program in a flexible format designed to meet the demands of working professionals. The program is delivered through a combination of on-campus and online classes that accommodate your busy schedule without sacrificing the critical MBA network.

Two evenings a week, you’ll attend live online classes from wherever you are – no need to drive to campus or skip that business trip or vacation.

On-Campus Electives
You can choose to take all of your electives on-campus, further expanding your in-person experience.

The Access Weekend Advantage

Access Weekends — held six times a year in Pittsburgh during the core curriculum — give you the in-person experience you expect. The weekend starts all of your classes in person, enhancing the learning experience and building meaningful relationships with your faculty and colleagues.

Access Weekends include more than academics. You’ll visit top companies to learn about their strategies and hiring practices, interact with speakers related to the industries you are studying, and network with alumni and full-time MBAs while you are on campus.

The Access Weekend experience is just one of the many benefits of the Tepper School Part-Time Flex MBA format. Explore more Tepper School MBA advantages.
