Introducing the More Female Friendly M.B.A.

The applications for business schools may be pouring in, but they're not necessarily from candidates the schools want to create a more balanced student body. While almost half the students in law and medical schools are female, women make up only 30 percent of students enrolled in business schools.

Some schools have begun offering part-time, morning M.B.A programs they hope will appeal to women. The early classes are intended for those with schedules that may not fit with traditional part-time evening or weekend M.B.A. programs. The Wall Street Journal sites students like 26-year old Nancy who juggles her "M.B.A. studies with an evening internship, a student-government post and home life with her boyfriend."

Would a part-time, morning M.B.A. be a better fit for your lifestyle than evening or weekend programs?

I don't know, I am not a morning person and I'm not sure how well I would actually do that early. Plus, I have to be at work at 7am, and I work weekends. So, for the schedule I have right now, night classes would have to work. It is nice to see schools trying to attract women though :D

This sounds great. Especially the pt internship. I just started a job and they pay for my schooling since they own 4. I am really considering to get a second Masters, moreso an MBA to compliment my other degree. I think this would be great for people that still need to hold down a ft job, have kids, social life, etc. It gives you time to make a schedule around these activies not just standard day or evening. The morning classes sound great.

I think I saw this article in the paper yesterday. I am a woman getting her MBA currently full time and working full time. I wouldnt exactly say mine is woman centered but I will say that there are only 3 men in the program right now.

I'm in the morning MBA program right now at Rotman! My friend Wendy was quoted in the article. For anyone who wants to know, getting up at 5am is no treat, but the fact that I can still start my work day at 9:30am and my evenings belong to me is invaluable. Morning MBA all the way!

i like that schools are trying to attract more women. it's a nice change compared to what you've seen over the years. in all my business classes - i guess i never noticed that there were more guys than girls - but i guess nowt hat i look back - maybe that was the case. i think that part time and weekends would suit my schedule more so than early mornings since i have to work, but i can see how the 'mom' type would do well in the AM while the kids are in school themselves.
