Not really about applications, but for those doing PT MBA and currently interviewing for other jobs, do you tell the hiring manager/HR you are starting the program in the fall (or currently going through it) Does it help your candidacy to say this or better keep it shut? Thanks

Wasn’t an issue at all for me, actually they offered to fund half of it for me. Haven’t heard of it negatively impacting anybody tbh.


I’d probably keep it shut. They are likely looking for candidates to hit the ground running and focus completely on the job - not a part time student.


I informed my hiring manager and also the HR. It was not an issue.
