Program description

Simon Part-Time MBAYour decision to pursue an MBA marks one of the most important steps along the path of your business career. More importantly, where you obtain your degree lays the groundwork for the type of skills you will master and the caliber of professional relationships you will forge.

You’ve always stood out among your peers. Now it’s time to make your mark on the rest of the world. A Simon education is where the journey begins – where thinkers become leaders, and where leaders create a legacy of success.

At the Simon School, your M.B.A. study is an investment in your personal and professional future. It can lead to a career change, advancement within your current field, and a broader set of options than you had prior to graduate study. However, even prior to applying for graduate study, we encourage you to begin saving or lining up funding for the tuition and related expenses of our top-tier graduate program. Many of our part-time students receive partial or full support from their employer. We also offer a variety of loan options to part-time candidates.

Simon is a place to stand up and stand out – a place that will leave an impression on you for the rest of your life. Our “right-sized” educational experience will personalize your academic and extra-curricular interactions with faculty, peers, alumni, and administrative offices, such as Student Services and the Career Management Center. Experience Simon for yourself and prepare to be impressed.
