Can you move to the full-time mba? If no, can you take on a full-time load while still enrolled in the part-time program (in order to finish sooner)?

Can you take off for a semester or two to do an internship?

It depends on the program - I believe that Chicago doesn't require to you maintain employment. So if you stop working you can start taking daytime classes or a bigger course load (but you can't officially transfer to the full-time program). You can take quarters off anytime (you just have to finish within 5 years), so you can take off for an internship if you want.

At Kellogg, on the other hand, they require you to maintain full-time managerial level employment throughout your MBA (their definition of managerial level is pretty flexible though). If you lose your job, then you have to notify the program and you have a quarter or two to find a new position. They'll help as they can - they just need to know you are making a legitimate effort to find a new job. You are not allowed to take more than the standard 2 classes without specific permission. And students can transfer to the full-time program, but only at a certain point in the program so it doesn't really have anything to do with students losing their jobs.

agreed, depends on the program, and pretty well summarized above. minor comment:- part-time programs will not sponsor an F1 visa.

another comment: Although you can take a full load of courses at the GSB if you so choose, you are nonetheless not part of full time recruiting. Although you can attend events, your badge is actually a different color than the full time students.

You posted this 3 years ago and I am sure my comment is no longer relevant to you. But I will try to answer them for others.

I don't know a single reputable part-time MBA program that allows internship through on campus recruiting for its PT students. It is one of the major distinguishing factors between FT and PT students and I don't think that will change. This difference is one of the major reasons why FT is much better if one wants to switch careers.
