Designed for working professionals, the Katz part-time MBA recently introduced a cohort model that allows students to choose an online or on-campus experience. This unique model allows students to master the competencies necessary to advance their careers without having to commit to a full-time, on-campus program.

“The model of our part-time program gave us an edge when the pandemic forced all classes online, as many of our faculty already had experience teaching virtually, and we had a robust library of online content that we could quickly adapt and deploy across all of our programs,” says Laura Oknefski, Director of Graduate Programs. “In creating flexibility for our students, we developed our own adaptability to be able to best serve them, even amidst unprecedented circumstances.”
