How It Works

Our Part-Time On-Campus MBA format is designed to fit the lifestyles of busy, working professionals.

Part-time students attend classes at the Tepper School two evenings a week, year-round, for 32 months, with the option to take some of the electives during the day. Since the curriculum is the same for every format, part-time students share some classes with full-time students.

Part-time students enjoy a small class of approximately 40-50 students. This smaller class size allows for deeper connections between classmates and more access to faculty.

For added flexibility, part-time students may also enroll in online MBA classes. Additionally, students can switch to the full-time format after one year.
