FROM Haas Admissions Blog: 7 Reasons to Choose a Part-time MBA Program
Congratulations—you've decided to go business school. And you've decided that study in a top-ranked MBA program will give you the knowledge, skills, and network to chart the course of your career, from next move to a lifetime of meaningful work. Now you need to determine which MBA schedule is right for you: Full-time? Part-time? Executive?

We in Admissions for the Evening & Weekend MBA Program at Berkeley-Haas would like to share 7 things about part-time MBA programs that may help you decide if this is the best way for you to MBA:

1. Don't pause, stay in play. 
Part-time programs let you continue working while you earn your degree, eliminating opportunity cost. Not only that, many students make career moves while still in school—beginning to realize ROI on an MBA early on.

2. Make the office your learning laboratory.
Nothing makes new knowledge stick like the chance to use it right away—in the real world. Part-time MBA programs let you learn it on Monday night or Thursday, or Saturday and take it right back to work with you.

3. (Your Job Title Here) by day, marketer, strategist, founder, etc. by night. 
Whatever your day job, part-time MBA programs let you walk a mile in many different pairs of shoes, through class projects, consulting engagements, and startup competitions, to name a few opportunities. 

4. If the shoe fits...you can wear it to work!
As your previously untapped talents come to light at school, you can help people at work see you in a whole new way; let them know that you better follow financial conversations and have more to contribute to strategic planning. Or brand management. Or global operations. 

5. Plug into a whole new network.
Ever wish you knew someone who worked at (Your Dream Company Here)? Now you do. In a part-time MBA program, your classmates bring a wide range of experience, expertise, and connections to the table. As do faculty and members of the alumni network.

6. Live and work where you want. 
The flexible scheduling options of part-time programs let you choose study at night, on Saturdays, or in blocks every few weeks. That way, even a commute to school by plane is do-able (and done by lots of people).  

7. Invest in yourself—and others will too.
Getting an MBA signals that you are taking charge of your career, realizing your potential, shaping and sharpening your skills. It says it before you’ve even finished the program. And it says it to your boss, even your boss’ boss. 

How could the Evening & Weekend Berkeley MBA Program help you take charge of your career?

Applied for R2-- Submitted the application on Jan 16.

The admissions office reached out to me check on my Visa Status . My Visa was was tricky since I am applying from India

Post that,
They were diligent to check on my transcripts. They already told me that they had not received my transcripts .I gave some proofs of the courier company delivering them in university sealed envelope and they were fine with that.They linked them back to my application.
They immediately got back saying that they needed my original degree certificate.
They said that the original was not mandatory for reviewing my application but was mandatory if i get an admit -- This is something that I haven't heard of . Did any of you guys hear this? or submit your original graduation certificates ?

All the above within 10 days of submitting the application. I get a feeling that they are very diligent and meticulous in reviewing the application. I just love how they are on top of their applicants even in initial steps of the application.

Hey Sharan,

Yeah- you don't need to send in your official transcripts for review, so you can submit unofficial transcripts during the application. But you need to prove this is true when you submit your full application.

I'm glad they were able to workout whether you'd be eligible in such a short time! Good luck!

Also applied R2 - submitted 1/11. No interview invite thus far. Some people were still receiving invites 7-8 weeks from submission though so I don't think there's cause for alarm (yet).

Just got my interview invite.

Little over 2 weeks since I submitted, but they didn't receive my GRE scores until yesterday. For those still waiting to hear, missing materials may impact the timeline for your invite.
