Ask A Boothie: Why Did You Choose a Part-Time MBA?
In our roles as Admissions Directors, we get asked a lot of questions by prospective students.
Some of those questions, however, are best answered by current students. Our “Ask a Boothie” series features students answering your questions. Some are lighthearted, some are in-depth, and all get to the heart of the Booth experience. If you’re checking out this post, there’s a good chance you’re hoping to become a Boothie one day. Hear from current Boothies as to why choosing a Part-Time MBA program was the right decision for them.

Speaker 1: I decided on a part-time MBA because, as I was looking around at people who had the jobs and positions that I wanted, I saw a lot of them did have that business degree.
Speaker 2: It lets me really keep a balance between work life and family life.
Speaker 3: It really allows me to precisely design my MBA experience to meet my needs.
Speaker 4: Part-time MBA gave me the flexibility to take what I was gonna learn in the classroom and apply that to my job.
Speaker 5: I also found that an MBA could really boost my work and my performance and also allow me to actually make new connections within my industry and even within my company.
Speaker 6: So initially an MBA was not on my radar, but the more people I met, specifically Boothies I met, the more broadly applicable and appealing the program became.
Speaker 7: I attended two classes as a visitor. I've been around higher ed for 20 years and I've never seen a classroom environment like this. And I knew after that experience that I had to apply to Booth.
