How the Part-Time Online Hybrid MBA Works

Get a top-tier education from anywhere and still make personal connections that will last a lifetime. It’s the best of both worlds!

The Tepper School Part-Time Online MBA is not like other online MBAs. All of our classes are taught by our own renowned faculty so you are never shortchanged on quality. Weekly online class sessions are augmented by in-person Access Weekends held several times throughout the year, letting you connect, in person, with classmates and professors. This combination makes the Tepper School Online MBA different from the rest.

Here’s how it works:

Synchronous Classes
Two evenings a week, you’ll attend live online classes taught by the same faculty who teach in the full-time program.

Asynchronous Classes
Pre-recorded lectures and additional content augment your weekly classes and can be completed when it’s convenient for you.

Access Weekends
Between each mini-semester, you’ll join your cohort for in-person classes and connect with faculty, classmates and alumni.

The Access Weekend Advantage

Are you worried you won’t make those personal and professional connections critical to your MBA experience in an online program? We’ve got that covered.

No matter which format you choose, the Tepper School provides the opportunity to be surrounded by some of the sharpest, most talented people you’ll ever meet. Weekly live classes and offline group projects allow for and encourage extensive personal interaction with both faculty and classmates. Don’t believe us?  Sit in on a live class and see for yourself.

These connections are strengthened during Access Weekends held six times a year in Pittsburgh, Silicon Valley, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C.  These weekends give you the in-person experience you won’t get in other online programs and allow you to start all of your classes in person, enhancing the learning experience and building meaningful relationships with your faculty and colleagues.

Access Weekends also include more than academics. You’ll visit top companies to learn about their strategies and hiring practices, interact with speakers related to the industries you are studying and network with alumni and full-time MBA’s when you are on campus.

“While still working full time as a Naval Academy instructor, I required a program that would give me flexibility to meet my work commitments and also prepare me to leave the Navy. The online program provides this flexibility, while the Access Weekends allow me to cultivate friendships.”
