MBA Full-time or extra-occupational – study at your own pace!

You can study for your MBA in General Management at Munich Business School either full-time or as an extra-occupational program, i.e. alongside your work commitments. This means that anyone interested in the program – whether happy in their role or looking for a change of direction – can find the ideal MBA program. While the full-time MBA lasts a compact 12 months, the extra-occupational version is designed to be completed in 24 months. On the part-time program, classes are held every two weeks on Friday afternoons and Saturdays.

So, a full-time MBA or an extra-occupational MBA program – which is the right choice?

Well, it depends entirely on your current circumstances and your personal preferences. Are you looking to engage intensively with business-related topics and gain a wealth of new knowledge? Maybe you’re at a turning point in your career and find yourself looking for a new specialism or opportunities in a new industry? Would you enjoy an authentic study experience and seize the benefits of university-level study? If so, a full-time MBA is the right choice for you.

On the other hand, the part-time MBA option makes sense if you’re looking to continue in your current role and see your professional future with your current employer. The benefit of the part-time, extra-occupational model for the MBA in General Management is that you can apply the knowledge you gain at the weekends directly in a professional context – and achieve almost instant success. However, it’s important to recognize that it will take a certain amount of motivation, stamina and time-management skills to maintain a balance between your job, your studies and family life.

Whichever model you choose – a full-time MBA or an extra-occupational MBA – on the MBA in General Management, you can be sure of receiving sound education in business administration and management, closely related to practical issues and with a strong network. The MBA program also avoids separating students into completely separate groups. So, candidates studying through the extra-occupational model complete some classes alongside their full-time peers. This gives our students the opportunity to study in an even more diverse and varied environment and further expand their professional network.
