I’m not at MBB but here’s a wild guess. They want your full time and attention at MBB so supporting a part time mba is a non starter

No for us

BCG1 is incorrect, BCG does pay for part-time MBA in the US. Generally the only folks that take advantage of it are the Business Services folks.

Thanks for the correction. Is the education reimbursement open to all staff though? Was always under the impression that it’s BST only? Also if it is open to CT how do we actually use this benefit?

Bst used to be fully paid but was rolled back this year

Also plenty of people do part time mba and make it work time wise

Modest, partial reimbursement for CST. It is possible but need to manage time really well

Go to EY and get their Tech MBA 🤓

Thanks to all. Appreciate the answers

I had my degree covered part time. There are several forms you need to sign regarding work performance not faltering while also maintaining your grades to a B average or better. I know of a few others that did this, but mainly only the weekend MBAs. I did a graduate STEM degree in hard sciences part time, getting in through a loophole that I exploited. I don’t recommend this, much less a weekday part-time MBA, unless you’re prepared to be sleep deprived with exactly zero social life for several years.
