Hi all! Few quick questions. I would like to apply to top MBA programs this year but I am interested in working several days a week to help finance the cost of the program. I understand that the vast majority of people don't do this, but to figure out whether I can at least try I wanted to ask a few quick questions:

1. How many hours of classes are there typically each day?
2. Are there typically classes each day of the week?
3. Is attendance usually taken?

I know answers vary by program but if you could provide answers regarding the top programs you know of that'd be great! Thanks all for your help :).

- Most schools don't have classes Fridays
- With the exception of 'core' classes you can generally figure out how to stack your classes to all MW or all TR - this will highly highly limit your selection of classes
- Core classes take up 1 or 2 semesters depending on the school
- There are many project based classes i.e. work in a team of 4 on a consulting project for a client. These classes often don't have a set meeting time.

I have heard of people taking paid internships in the field they're trying to break into during the semester (anecdotally real estate, retail, tech, VC).

I would say this is somewhat possible, but more possible if you are able to place out of some of the core class and or during your second semester. The core classes will be the ones where you have less flexibility and may not allow you to have a completely free schedule but most schools will allow you at least one day completely free. I will say though if you are using most of your free time to work you will miss out on some potentially valuable networking opportunities. But do what makes sense for your situation
