Part-Time MBA? It's a Full-Time Commitment

If you're working, too, your schedule will be daunting

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.
