PART-­TIME M.B.A. PROGRAM

https://paulcollege.unh.edu/academics/graduate-programs/mba/part-time-mba

The M.B.A. Part­-Time evening option is an excellent choice for professionals in the workforce who are seeking to advance their careers. This innovative program provides the opportunity for students to earn a degree in as little as two years. Courses are offered at the Durham and Manchester campuses.

Instituted in 1996, the Part-Time evening M.B.A. program is primarily designed for those who are highly motivated and capable of balancing a full­-time work schedule with evening study. Classes meet from 5:30-­9:15 p.m. The Part-­Time, Online and Full­-Time programs all share the same faculty. Admission points are in late August and January.

The new and innovative curriculum common to all the MBA programs at UNH - Full-Time, Part-Time and Online - is specifically designed to align the learning objectives in the core courses and free up more time for elective/specialization courses. The curriculum does this by integrating courses, identifying key skills and concepts necessary for success in business, and then helping students master these skills and concepts through class discussions, cases, guest lectures, and projects. Throughout the program, students will be exposed to knowledge that builds insight into complex organizations.

ONLINE M.B.A.

The Online M.B.A. degree is an excellent choice for professionals in the workforce who are seeking to advance their careers, but who cannot regularly attend classes on campus. This innovative program provides students with the opportunity to earn a degree in as little as two years from anywhere in the world and has rapidly grown to become the Paul School’s most popular M.B.A. program.

The Online model is primarily designed for those who are highly motivated and capable of balancing a full-­time work schedule with online study. Courses are designed to facilitate information sharing outside the constraints of time and place among a network of people.

The Online M.B.A. program follows the same curriculum as the Part-­Time M.B.A. allowing students to move back and forth between the two models if they choose. Admission points are in mid August and January. The program is primarily asynchronous. Students can log on anytime during the week to complete their work adding to the flexibility of the online option. NB: The online courses, like those that are face to face, may require team projects that necessitate coordinating the schedules of those involved from time to time.

Part­-Time and Online M.B.A. Requirements

Part-­time (evening) and online students typically begin the program in the fall term, although January admission with a reduced course load is possible. The degree is comprised of nine required core courses and seven electives. ADMN 982 Creating Winning Strategies is the capstone experience. Students may petition to waive up to three core courses. A waiver is typically granted if the student possesses a major (five to six courses from an AACSB­ accredited institution) in a core area earned within five years of matriculation, e.g., a student with a major in finance may petition to waive the M.B.A. core course in finance. The program is designed to permit students who begin in the fall to complete the degree in less than two years, although a more relaxed pace is also possible. Students have up to three and a half years to complete the curriculum.
