I did the evening program at Kellogg while working at a small consulting firm that didn't pay my way...it was busy and I wasn't able to be quite as social as others, but I didn't have to take out any loans and was able to put learnings into action immediately... it was worth it for me but I think it just depends on your priorities

Yeah that’s what the pros I’m going for work PT. Were you able to network with other folks in the program?

I’m in a PT program now and genuinely couldn’t fathom taking two years off to do an MBA - it’s just not (in my opinion) worth it. Can’t speak for Berkeley’s, but I appreciate being able to immediately apply what I learn to my daily work.

Thanks for sharing!

I did the part time program at Haas and loved it. Learn the difference between lose/loose before writing your application essays though

It’s the best PT program but PT programs are not as good as FT. Depends on your goals

Why it’s not as good?

Did you all tell your companies you were doing part time? Was it frowned upon or all good as long as it's on your own time?

Not yet. I was thinking about doing Weekend program

Hi everyone! I’ve been thinking for years now if I should pursue an MBA program? I’ve heard from many that for some it was helpful and they needed it to get promoted. Others say that currently it can be seen as a waste of money if you don’t need it to be promoted for example. I’m asking because I’ve always wanted to strive to reach the highest level of education I can and I do like to learn but an MBA is an investment and I don’t know if it’s worth it.
