Part-Time Option

We offer a part-time option for students who cannot commit to a full-time course load. While most of our courses take place on campus during the day, some courses are available online and/or in the evening. Students interested in the part-time option must have schedule flexibility to attend some classes on campus.

Sample Part-Time Course Schedule

Here is an example of a typical course schedule for part-time students in the MMB program. This schedule ONLY shows courses that must be taken on-campus. Additional course hours must be taken online each semester. Contact us for more information! Part-time MMB students must complete their degree in 6 years.
