Beth Bader, managing director of Chicago GSB’s Executive MBA Program – Asia agrees the trend is toward part-time MBA’s. According to the article, Bader says companies find part-time MBA programs valuable because they allow employees to stay at the “cutting edge” of their profession while learning the latest business theories and practices.
