Part-Time MBA

Our Most Flexible MBA Program

The Work-Life Balance MBA

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

Students from every job industry

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. Some students hope to gain more relevant, up-to-date skills with the objective of changing professions; others want to broaden their skill set to compete for higher-level jobs within their current organizations.
