Henry Ford once famously said that customers could get the Model T in any color they wanted, as long as it was black. But freedom of choice is a good thing, especially when it comes to your MBA program.
Many part-time MBAs, even those that are highly ranked and well-regarded, have a regimented schedule. You show up the same nights for two years and take the same classes in order to complete the requirements. Some of that is for the sake of efficiency — busy working professionals looking to ramp up a number of business skills can’t dedicate the time necessary to read through an entire course catalog and find the right courses for them. The flip side of that, of course, is that it’s your career. And you likely need different classes and different skills than other students.
The Professional Flex MBA at ASU’s W. P. Carey School of Business allows you to choose what courses to take, and when to take them. Select the combination of on-campus and online courses that fits your schedule, subject to online course availability, and set yourself up for success while balancing your MBA with other commitments.
Adding to the convenience of the degree is a new, more flexible timeline, giving you anywhere from two to four years to complete your degree. This is ideal for students who know they have busier times of year in the office or know in advance they might be traveling more for work. Instead of falling behind in class or giving up altogether, you can now take more or fewer classes as your schedule allows.
Choose your own adventure
And then, of course, there are the classes themselves. The Professional Flex MBA offers 40+ electives, covering a wide range of topics. That gives you the option of adding a lot more general knowledge or deeper focus in one or two years. Technical certificates and concurrent degrees are also available, if you’re planning to to take most or all of your courses on campus over a two-year schedule.
