Part-time MBA Overview
An estimated 90% of MBA programs are offered
part-time, partly as “Executive MBA”, partly without
special requirements. What is the advantage of this, how
high the costs are, what you should know about the
division between work and studies and of course all
part-time MBA courses are listed below.
Why is the MBA actually in demand part-time? Logical
answer - anyone who has arrived in professional life and
has taken the first steps up the career ladder will no
longer want to get out and forego the monthly salary
transfer. In addition, there is also the respect for not
finding a follow-up job after a break for a full-time
Completing an MBA part-time can be a good decision -
but you should also realistically assess that a hard
time is waiting for you:
A lot of time and energy
is required to complete the course part-time. It is
important here that family, friends, partners and
employers support you in your studies. Determination and
perseverance are required.

An MBA in addition to your job or a break and a
full-time degree? The students are as different as the
study model. Many who opt for the full-time MBA are
looking for a distance from their previous job, looking
for new perspectives personally and professionally. This
can be the Germanist who goes to an investment bank
after graduation, as well as the investment banker who
switches to an aid organization.
On the other hand, those who already have two feet in
their professional life opt for a part-time MBA. At the
beginning of their studies, they are easily five to ten
years older than full-time MBAs and therefore have more
work experience. The networking effect, which many
graduates describe in our experience reports as a major
advantage of their studies, is much more likely to be
felt if the MBA is taken on a part-time basis.
How does a part-time MBA study work?
There are two types of part-time MBAs. Please note
that we only deal with the courses of study that are
mainly carried out as face-to-face courses (so you have
to be physically present). If you are interested in
distance learning, we have put together all the
information on our MBA distance
learning page. Alternatively, you can consider an online
1) weekend study
The lectures usually take place from Friday morning
to Sunday afternoon. The exact lecture times vary from
provider to provider.
- FOM University: Usually every two weeks on
Fridays from 6 p.m. to 9:15 p.m. and on Saturdays
from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
- TH Nuremberg: Three days a week (weekdays from
5:30 p.m. to 8:45 p.m. and Saturdays from 8:30 a.m.
to 1:30 p.m.)
2) Block study
Block events take place at regular intervals, several
times per semester (certainly once a month). During this
time, the MBA is not part-time, but full-time. The
program is called "part-time" because you can continue
to work normally in the other weeks.
- University of Würzburg: 70 attendance days in
two years, spread over 10 one to two week block
Shorter, more intensive learning. Possibly less
effort if you do not live in the immediate
vicinity of the part-time MBA.
Quite a few vacation days and also the support
of the employer are required, as it is probably
difficult to take a week off every six weeks.
Many "mixed" forms
If you want to study an MBA part-time, the question
of the course of study is one of the most important. As
you can see below, there are also numerous study models
that use a mixture of weekend and block study.
- Frankfurt School of Finance: Two to four times
per semester on Fridays from 1:15 p.m. to 6:15 p.m.,
Saturdays and Sundays from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
plus a six-day block week
- Bielefeld University of Applied Sciences:
Usually eight Saturdays and max. five days of the
week per semester
- HWR Berlin: Four attendance weeks (Saturdays to
Saturdays all day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.) and eight
attendance blocks (Sundays 6 p.m. to 9:15 p.m.,
Fridays / Saturdays / Sundays 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.) in
Is there a ranking for part-time MBAs?
Unfortunately, no. It is generally difficult to get
an overview of part-time or distance learning MBAs using
rankings. In our article on rankings for part-time
MBAs, we dared to approach it.
By the way: You can also go abroad to work
“Just” because you want to study the MBA part-time,
it does not mean that you have to do without
international experience or a degree from a foreign
university. There are two ways to incorporate
international experience into the part-time MBA:
1.) German university with international study
There are built-in phases abroad, especially for the
higher-quality MBAs at German universities, but they
vary widely in scope.
- The Frankfurt School of Finance offers a
one-week module abroad in China, the USA, Slovenia
- At Mannheim Business School, two one-week stays
abroad are included, for example in North America or
- The Heilbronn University offers MBA Global
Business at together with the University of
Louisville (USA), where you spend 2x 4.5 study
You could say that this is a "foreign experience
light", which is of course also due to the fact that as
a part-time MBA student, you cannot simply take several
months off to study abroad.
2.) Part-time MBA at a foreign university
Of course there is also the possibility to choose a
foreign university directly. The full-time MBA students
tend to go abroad, but there are also options for
- University of St. Gallen: The attendance phases
of the Part Time MBA usually take place one week per
month, sometimes at different locations such as
Barcelona, Copenhagen, Oxford or Salzburg.
- There is a Part Time MBA at HEC Paris, which
takes place one week a month in Paris and also
contains worldwide modules abroad.
- The Business School of the Vienna University of
Economics and Business also offers stays abroad in
Russia, Asia and the USA in 40 days of classroom
So there are numerous opportunities to study the MBA
part-time abroad. However, you should note that the
effort and costs are quite high. Depending on the place
of study, you have to plan a lot of travel time, the
tuition fees are usually significantly more expensive
and not everyone can take an "MBA vacation" every few
months for a week. The advantage of the hardships is,
however, that you complete a somewhat more unusual
degree, which makes a little more impression on
employers than a classic German MBA.
