I don't understand why you think one of these schools would need a scholarship to get someone with your broad experience and GMAT score into the class.

For these part-time MBA programs, I would think you are pretty limited by where you're working and living, no? I mean, if you're working and live in the city, I think it might be hard to get back and forth to evening classes in Santa Clara with traffic, no?

The San Jose program might be a good option, it's got weekend classes.

Otherwise, San Francisco State has a decent part-time evening option as well.

As for scholarships, I wouldn't count on much for the part-time options - you'll have to check with the schools.

Thanks Duncan and ezra. I understand about scholarship.

My profile is: I am new in bay area and I dont have sufficient fund for MBA. However, I can go for loan and get admission. My question is.. is it worth spending 35-40k for a part time program in schools like Lucas? Its rating is far below the average. My expectation from MBA is - 1) I want to switch my career from technical to managerial/business 2) Immediately after completing my MBA, I want to get a good salary job in managerial / business profile.

Part-time MBA programs are generally not for people who want to do major shifts in their career, but rather for those who have jobs already and want to continue on their current path and even in their current company.

As such I would normally suggest that people who want to do part-time programs to check with their employer to see if any education funding is available through them.

If you're looking for a shift in your career, perhaps a full-time program - which would offer much better career services resources - would be a better option?
