Highlights of the Evening MBA Program:

In general, students enrolled in the best Evening MBA programs complain about feeling neglected by school administrators, especially when it comes to career services and extracurricular opportunities. Another concern among many part-time Evening MBA students is how long it takes to earn the MBA credential, as either courses are not offered as often as they would like or it’s not clear which courses are necessary to graduate. Class scheduling and availability of courses are the most challenging aspects of their MBA program. Often the classes that students want are all offered on the same night.

According to a study by the U.S. Department of Education, online learning has definite advantages over face-to-face instruction when it comes to teaching and learning. The study found that students who took all or part of their instruction online performed better, on average, than those taking the same course through face-to-face instruction. Further, those who took “blended” or Hybrid courses — those that combine elements of online learning and face-to-face instruction — appeared to do best of all. The courses in the Evening MBA program are offered either fully online (summer semester) or as blended/hybrid courses during the fall and spring semesters.
