Maybe this is a stupid question, but after one graduates from a part time program, how should he/she put it on the resume? Do you have to distinguish that you were a part time student, or can you write, "MBA, X school" and leave out the "part-time"? For example, if two students both graduated from NYU, one being a part timer and one being a full timer, would they have different resumes after graduating, or would they both just be "MBA, NYU"?

The same MBA. [#permalink] New post 29 Dec 2007, 08:00
The answer is "MBA, X school", no format of the MBA will be indicated on your degree or deploma from the school. Otherwise there will be little value in getting an X school MBA part time.
In searching for your first job right out of the MBA, especially thru on campus recruiting, you may be asked you which program you graduate from, if the recruiters know there are multiply programs. But after your first job questions like that seldom would pop up I imagine.
That's why I am leery of pursuing an EMBA which does have that extra E always in your resume.

The EMBA from most of the top schools (UCLA, Wharton, etc.) do not distinguish their degrees from their full time programs. You get the same diploma, etc.

A degree from Wharton MBA for Executives is the same degree and diploma as the full time program.

Now with that said, if a recruiter or someone asks you specifically if you are in the executive program, part time program, or full time program, you shouldn't lie.

The programs where the degree is different are virtually worthless IMO.

yeah you can write MBA X-school on your resume, but than the fact that you have worked full time during your MBA studies (the work experience section on your resume) will show to the recruiters that you did not go to MBA full time

at the end of the day, in your resume you just write MBA (year) (school) and that's it.

if you were obviously working during that time, they may assume that you were in an executive or part time program.

if they ask, don't lie. you may need to educate them that the executive or part time program is the same as the full time program, etc. but if they don't already know this, they probably won't believe you. hopefully this will get better over time.

if you weren't working, then they probably won't know but if you're not working, why not go to a full time program? you'll pay less money, get more immersed, and overall probably have a better experience?

Then I guess you have a trust fund so it doesn't matter? :-D

Can you not work and still get admitted to a part time program? I think there was a thread on this recently and the consensus was no, you generally can't.

Moreover, does the NYU part-time MBA degree make no reference to Langone? Their full-time and part-time programs have distinct names - "The Stern MBA" and "The Langone Program," respectively. So it seems to me a few schools *do* try to differentiate between them. So to claim an MBA from "Stern" on your resume when you are a participant in the Langone program, would that not be misleading?

Sure you can. You get accepted to the school and quit your job. Most PT programs would allow this. At least the "local"/"regional" ones. I had one in mind as a backup (Seattle U) where I would do the "part time" in 2 years by taking classes every day. Basically I would have created a simulated full-time program.

westsider - why would you want to do that though?

if you're not generating income by way of being employed full-time and still spending the 2 years a full-time MBA would take to complete, why consider a part-time program over its full-time variant at all?

That was my "just in case I dont get into any schools" - I could stay local and still get my degree in 2 years. Maybe get a low-quality job. Trust me.. .NOT my first choice . Or my second. About 10 choices after my last choice to be honest! :twisted:

hahaha I wish. I was just considering hypotheticals.

Stern's pamphlet clearly states that you should be working while doing the Langone program. Though, they don't make any overt threats about any ramifications of not being employed.

I do know of some part timers who are not working.

Re: Langone Program -- I don't believe it does. The degree is an NYU MBA. Nothing more, nothing less.

As for the misleading part: it might be misleading, however, the school is an ACTIVE participant. There are numerous (I can't say for certain all, but I'm sure it's all) schools that go out of their way to say that their PT/executive MBA is the same as the full time MBA and that all of the students get the same degree. In fact, that's their selling point.

I’m currently in the MBA Working Professionals Track (yeah, they just changed the name from PT MBA) at OSU Fisher and I know several people who are not working and just taking more classes. I did ask someone why they didn’t just go for the full-time program and their response was that the PT would be quicker if they were taking a full-time class load because they eliminate many of the prerequisites.

For example, in the FT program, if you never took undergrad econ, stats, etc. you’d have to take those classes before you could take the MBA versions. Of course, the big stickler is that you’d be taking those undergrad level classes at graduate school prices. However, since the PT MBA assumes that you have more practical experience, they don’t require those prerequisites.
