In the midst of the economic downturn, more students are enrolled in part-time master’s of business administration programs. According to the Chicago Tribune, part-time MBA students incur lower opportunity costs because they usually work or hunt for jobs while attending classes. Enrollment numbers are climbing even as the MBA degree fights for respect in the aftermath of a financial crisis and recession. The economic crises raised doubts about the moral integrity of management training. Nevertheless, schools, such as Loyola University Chicago’s Graduate School of Business, report growing part-time MBA enrollments. Loyola will enroll 233 MBA students for this fall’s part-time-only program, up 32 percent from last year.
