Insider's Guide for the Part-Time Student With a Full-Time Life Business Editors NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 9, 2001--After years of waning applications, business school is once again HOT! Applications to business school are projected to go up for the first time in years, and more than two-thirds of these students will attend school part-time while working full-time. To help these overworked students meet the demands on their personal, professional, and academic careers, Kaplan Publishing introduces M.B.A Part-Time: An Insider's Guide for the Part-Time Student with a Full-Time Life (Kaplan, Inc. and Simon & Schuster, January 2001; $20.00) by Robyn Frank-Pedersen. To meet the needs of prospective students, business schools are developing new, flexible programs to appeal to students who can only attend part-time. Of the 100 schools surveyed by Business Week, the average program graduated 61 part-time M.B.A. students this year, up from 37 five years ago. Just 55 schools awarded part-time M.B.A. degrees in 1988; today, about 190 accredited programs exist, including 35 overseas. This unique Kaplan guide--the first of its kind in the market and publishing simultaneously in print and e-book format --addresses the specific needs of the growing number of M.B.A. candidates juggling careers and school. M.B.A. Part-Time features interviews with admissions officers, professors, students, and human resources professionals, offering prospective students information from a variety of vantage points. This indispensable resource covers everything business school candidates need to know, including: -- Tips on assembling recommendations that present your work experience effectively -- Advice on financing a degree, including coverage of school-sponsored financial assistance plans and employee tuition programs -- Time-management advice for juggling work and school -- First-hand advice from current business school students and graduates who have successfully managed their school and work responsibilities About the author: Robyn Frank-Pedersen obtained her M.B.A. in finance at Fordham University while employed at Compagnie Financiere De Cic et de L'Union Europeenne, where she rose from Executive Assistant to Vice President and Risk Manager. In addition to obtaining her own M.B.A. on a part-time basis, Robyn also managed employees who followed this course, so she is familiar with the part-time student/full-time employee experience. This is the first e-book offered by Kaplan. This revolutionary new format is perfectly suited for the busy professional. An added bonus, the e-book version of MBA PT will include a special chapter on the GMAT (the Graduate Management Admissions Test) that is not available in the printed form of the book. Kaplan, Inc.
