Also known as flex programs, Part-time MBA programs are specifically designed for the working professional who cannot take time off work to attend full-time MBA programs. This program is particularly appealing to people who wish to advance their existing career. It can also be advantageous for people who have already developed a network of business relationships that can facilitate a change of careers.
Part-time MBA programs usually take two to three years to complete, but may take up to five. Some part-time programs require fewer courses than full-time programs, while others require the same number. There are even a couple of business schools that offer accelerated part-time MBA programs, which allow candidates to earn their degree in a shorter amount of time.
Fees for Part-Time MBA programs are less than Full-time MBA programs. Every B-school has its own fee structure. Program fee ranges anywhere from Rs 50,000 upto Rs 10 lakh.
