You've decided to get an MBA, but there's no way you're going to give up the salary and benefits of a full-time job for two years at business school. Instead, you're looking at a part-time program, which means you'll be facing three to four years of classes and homework in addition to your full-time job.
Do you really want to do this? The schedule of a part-time MBA student is daunting. Ask Asmat Noori, a 27-year-old student at University of Michigan Business School in Ann Arbor. Or better yet, ask his 3-year-old daughter, Shannon, who doesn't understand why daddy isn't home to play with her several nights a week as well as parts of the weekend.
