1) The costs will probably be much less.
2) It indicates to your employer that you are ambitious, hardworking and well-motivated.
3) If you are an employee and a part-time student, many companies will pay all or part of your tuition fees.
4) You can often practically apply the concepts taught in the classroom if you have a full-time job and go for a part-time MBA.
5) You won’t lose 2 years’ work experience or 2 years’ earnings and promotion possibilities.
1) If you work full-time, you might find yourself very tired and your attention span limited when you attend classes at night or on weekends.
2) If you are working and raising a family, going to B-school/MBA college puts additional pressure on your job, family and marriage.
3) As a part-time student, you usually are unable to spend the same amount of preparation time for your classes, tests and term papers that you could as a full-time student. You don’t have the same access to library facilities, faculty members or student advisers for research and discussion.
4) You will have little chance to meet and spend time with your fellow students, to get to know them or to make friendships, because you will generally arrive at B-school after work, with little time to spare, and will then leave as soon as class is over. It also means you rarely have time to participate in any extracurricular or social activities of the college, so you could miss what is generally called the “campus experience”.
5) It is difficult to build close relationships with your professors. You are usually under substantial time pressures, and many professors don’t have office hours in the late afternoons or evenings, which are the times during which most part-time students can visit.
