Part-Time Graduate Students

Welcome Part-Time Graduate Students

Often cited as a minimum requirement for higher management positions, our graduate business programs are designed for high achievers who want to take control of their careers. Saunders College of Business provides many degree options and flexible schedules to help you accomplish your career goals on your terms.

Get Ahead in Your Career

Our Masters programs allow you to focus specifically on business disciplines you are targeting. These specialized degrees allow you to focus on a specific area of courses that concentrate on a business function you are looking to develop. In addition to day-time course schedules most courses are offered at night while many of our most popular courses are also available online. Plus, summer term schedules offer 6-week intensive and 12-week options so you can schedule around your summer plans.

Students pursuing an MBA program can finish their degree in as little as 2.5 years (8 semesters), taking 2 courses every semester. Similarly, students taking an MS program or those that qualify for the Accelerate 4+1 MBA, may be able to finish their program in as little as 1.5 years (5 semesters).

  • Use the career counseling and search resources of our cooperative education to help build your personal brand and leverage your Saunders program into your dream career.
  • Part-time students can generally start their program in any semester, however, some may only offer a fall semester start. Please consult with your advisor to be sure.
