• Part-Time MBA Program Details

    At Hamline, you can complete your MBA in Minnesota by attending classes one night a week for two years with a network of your peers—so it’s a full-time timeline with a part-time schedule. This concentrated time commitment allows you to quickly earn your MBA and start reaping the benefits of your education as soon as possible.

    Each semester of Hamline's part-time MBA program consists of a module made up of two or three courses designed around the topics critical in the everyday world of forward-looking business.

    Many MBA programs provide stand-alone courses that have no relationship to one another. We dig deeper, with concepts that build on each other, so you’ll enjoy a consistent learning experience, sharing the same background coursework as others in your cohort. In addition, because instructors know what you’ve learned in prior modules, they add to your knowledge rather than repeat what you already know.
