Graziadio Business School MBA Programs

Designed for working professionals, the Part-Time (Fully Employed) MBA program offers a flexible, experience-driven curriculum in a small, collaborative classroom environment. The rigorous course of study for the Fully Employed MBA program provides a foundation in all business disciplines and the opportunity to specialize in a concentration within a 52- unit framework that can be completed in two years on-campus or online. You also have the option to proceed at a slower pace to accommodate personal and professional demands.

You’ll learn from expert faculty who put theory into action and provide real-world insights gained through years of practical experience. Our experiential learning E2B program takes you beyond traditional case studies and empowers you to apply the learned skills directly with noteworthy organizations. In select classes, you will work in competing teams to solve multifaceted, real-life business challenges presented by pre-selected companies ranging from global powerhouses and regional brands to entrepreneurial startups.

Stefanie Fujinami Part-Time MBA Alumna

Small classes are wonderful. Professors know students by name and lectures can be tailored to students’ interests. Most lectures are held as discussions and questions/comments are welcome throughout the lecture. Through class discussions, students are able to learn from each other’s perspectives and experiences, which is invaluable."


How long is the Part-Time MBA program?

The program can be completed in 24 months of continuous study taking a minimum of 8 units of coursework per trimester plus additional workshops over 4 weekends. However, students have the flexibility of completing the program over a longer period (up to a maximum seven years) by taking fewer units per trimester according to their work commitments and personal circumstances.
