In the US, full-time MBAs are two years usually, which means that their part-time counterparts, which are more spread out, are usually 3-4 years and have a lot of flexibility.

Specifically there's no accredited business school in the LA area which offers such a short part-time option. Fortunately, you're in a great place for part-time/weekend options, even if they're going to be longer: USC's MBA-PM program is great, as is UCLA's FEMBA. There are lower cost options at schools like CSULB. That school's part-time MBA can be completed in between two and four years.
