The people with whom you learn are as important as what you learn and how you learn it. This is especially true in the Weekend MBA format. Weekend students take all their classes with the same cohort of peers. Twice a month, Weekend students come together on campus to master challenging and stimulating material.
There are many benefits to an intense cohort-based experience. The format encourages the kind of effective communication skills and teamwork that recruiters prize. Executives understand these skills are a prerequisite for organizational success. Perhaps most important, the Weekend format allows students to build a deep camaraderie and forge lasting personal and professional ties.
As time permits, students also are strongly encouraged to take advantage of the lectures, conferences, and student activities on campus.
