Thoughts/Experience with PT MBA? Hard for me to justify going FT.

I went to Stern part-time and 100% think it was the right decision. The financial implications of FT are staggering. I got a nice salary bump after completion, which also didn't hurt. Agreed that the network is not as vast - but if you put in the effort, you can make great connections as a PT student.


How's your network? If you feel like you have a solid network already and are going more for pedigree and whatever business argument you feel you're lacking. Most people understand 50% or more of the value from a top B school is the network they develop though... So that's just the question you have to ask yourself IMO.


OP: Does KPMG help pay for PT? That would weigh heavily on my decision


@Strat& network is not that broad. @ACN2 KPMG doesn't pay for PT.

Go full time, there's a difference. PT is known as less selective/prestigious and you get one-off adjunct professors and a smaller, lower value network. Most top 15 FT programs have a <5 year payback. Or why not a one year program?
