Important new trend in top b-schools: Evening MBA students being forced to designate on resume.

In a meeting earlier this week with the Director of Career Services for a top 25 b-school I was shocked to hear that schools are now beginning to force evening MBA participants to designate on their resumes that they are in the evening program. While yes, it should be obvious to a recruiter if a student is in the full time MBA program or the evening program from their resume details, in the past, it has always been an attractive benefit of attending an evening program that you can put MBA on the resume as opposed to MBA, evening program. This has been a very unpopular move with many evening students as you can imagine, but also consider that the alternative was really upsetting the daytime MBA students at these same schools. You see, the daytime students felt they were competing for jobs with the evening students and were not happy about it. Since the Bloomberg BusinessWeek rankings depends on student satisfaction to a large degree, the program administrators are quick to listen and respond. Result? New rule requiring evening students to designate. The good news for evening students is, that most recruiters nowadays hold the evening MBA students in just as high esteem as the daytime candidates. In some cases, the evening students are indeed winning jobs over the daytime students because of their employability. Think about it…they already have a job and in most cases have more work experience than the full time MBA candidates do. Work experience counts for a great deal in this economy. So, if you find yourself trying to decide between an evening program and a full time program, just know that this new trend is out there, and if it bothers you, you should figure it into your decision.

UPDATE:
Well, as of December, it seems the plan at least for one top school is to drop the idea of requiring part-timers to designate internally on resumes for job searches. While this has not been rolled out yet to full timers as a news item, the part timers have quietly been told that they need only list the MBA degree. This will surely be good news for part timers, but any reaction from Full timers, who protect their career services with extreme jealousy, may be austere! Will keep you posted.
