Weekend MBA

Master of Business Administration | Weekend MBA

The globally prestigious Purdue Weekend MBA is conducted at an ideal pace for ambitious professionals to whom career and family are also important. 

The blended learning format of the Weekend MBA offers a refreshed curriculum in a 21-month, alternating weekend program which allows students to have online and onsite, in-class instruction from experienced professors committed to developing business leaders.

The program begins every August and spans five semesters. Class is held two Saturdays a month over consecutive semesters, which allows students to cohesively move through each semester. This schedule allows participants to complete the program in a total of 38 sessions over two years. On campus class times are Saturdays 8:00am-5:00pm.

A Krannert Weekend MBA bestows more than mere credentials. It equips professionals to solve the world’s toughest business challenges and provides the incomparable advantage of lifelong opportunities. Few part-time programs as prestigious as Purdue’s offer a preeminent MBA degree at a pace that caters to your busy lifestyle. The program’s family-friendly, alternating Saturday class schedule, prepares you to lead tomorrow while leaving time for the people and moments that matter to you today. 

Classes are taught by the faculty of the Krannert Graduate School of Management, as well as selected visiting faculty members. All are senior-level professionals well-known for their research, who also bring practical experience working with business firms and governmental agencies in a variety of roles.

The Weekend MBA classes are held on Purdue’s West Lafayette campus, the architectural award-winning Rawls Hall. Rawls houses 13 electronically-equipped classrooms, a multimedia-based auditorium, 25 breakout rooms, distance learning facilities, and sophisticated computer labs. Naturally-lighted commons areas offer inviting meeting spaces and panoramic views of Purdue’s campus and are conveniently reserved as a gathering place for Weekend MBA meals and other program activities.

Rather than squeezing in weeknight classes after a full day’s work, the Krannert Weekend MBA dedicates a day to focus on enhancing your education, skills, and opportunities. And when you return to work, you can easily apply all that you’ve learned.
