UC Berkeley's Haas School of Business has announced that it is adding an online option to its part-time "Evening and Weekend MBA program."
As part of the "Flex" online option, students will be able to take the core MBA classes online, and then will have the option of taking the elective classes either online or on-campus. Some 40 to 60 percent of the online classes will be delivered synchronously, in order to foster more of a cohort-based experience.
Students in the Flex online option will be required to come to campus for orientation over a long weekend, as well as a class in "Leadership Communication," during a long weekend during the second half of the second semester. Another required in-person session will also take place in Napa Valley, in January. Other, optional in-person sessions will also be on offer.
Evening and Weekend MBA students typically complete the program in three years, although the program can be completed in as short as 2.5 years.
