The Purdue University Krannert School of Management is tweaking its weekend MBA program. The program will remain 21 months, but will shift to more online work.
It will now be two-thirds on-campus and one-third online. Purdue says twice-a-month appearances on the West Lafayette campus make it more accessible.
Associate Director of Program Managers and the Weekend MBA program Don Roush says "we believe the changes will have several benefits. First, it allows participants to miss less time at work without losing contact hours with their instructors. It also allows them to do prep work online that will offer deeper discussion and understanding of course material in their classroom meetings. The program will be accessible to more participants in the new format while continuing to offer a world-class MBA education that can be immediately applied in the workplace."
Classes start in August and will wrap in May 2018.
