Is This Program Right for Me?
If you are a busy, ambitious professional, the Weatherhead part-time MBA program is the perfect option to further your education. The part-time MBA degree program is a three-year, 48-credit-hour, cohort-based program that offers the same challenging business concepts as the full-time MBA program's curriculum, rooted in the two ideals that differentiate Weatherhead’s pedagogy: business as an agent of world benefit and manage by designing.
Managers create the worlds in which we work and live. In order to be prepared for the challenges of tomorrow, Weatherhead equips managers with the knowledge and tools necessary to effect change for both profitability and world betterment. Through revolutionary design in managing principles, you will be challenged to think beyond the default response to problems, combining the right-brained tools of a designer with a solid command of business principles to advance yourself, your colleagues, your company, and your world.
Students begin the program in the summer semester with Weatherhead’s Leadership Assessment and Development course, often referred to simply as LEAD. LEAD places students in teams deliberately set up to include a diversity of learning styles. Students then move through the three-year part-time MBA curriculum with that same group of peers. The cohort-based format allows participants to develop together as both students and colleagues, which facilitates the growth of a strong network and the fostering of lasting friendships.
