The University of Virginia's Darden School of Business has announced the launch of a new, Washington DC-area part-time MBA program.
The new program, which will be operated out of Arlington, Virginia, will be delivered in a part-time format and is designed for working professionals. The program duration can vary, depending on each student's needs and time availability. The length can range from 28 to 48 months, and the school says the most common path will likely take 33 months.
Most classes will be offered primarily on weekday evenings, through a mix of virtual and in-class sessions. Two, week-long residency sessions will also be on offer, as will global study opportunities.
In terms of the MBA's curriculum, the core courses will be the same as in Darden's full-time and Executive MBA programs: Decision Analysis, Marketing, Accounting, Leading Organizations, Finance, Strategy, Ethics, Global Economies and Markets, and Leadership Communication. Electives will also be offered specifically for part-time MBA students.
The new MBA is expected to launch in August, 2022, with an expected cohort size of approximately 65 students.
Darden announced its expansion to the Rosslyn district of Arlington in 2016.
