Part-Time MBA

Our Most Flexible MBA Program

The part-time MBA program at Bentley offers the most flexible option for students, making it a great option for the busy, working professional. While most complete the program within two years, students have up to five years and can vary their course load to fit their personal work-life schedules. 

Students in the program come from all industries and a variety of jobs (everything from nursing to law to science). No matter what their background, the common goal is to understand more about business principles and learn key skills, like decision-making, business strategy, and management.
