Evening & Weekend Berkeley MBA Program

Schedule Options

The Evening & Weekend MBA Program makes the academic experience convenient and accessible for busy working professionals. The part-time schedule allows you to work while pursuing your education and expanding your network. Students typically complete their studies in 3 years, but can do so in as little as 2.5 years.

Select an Evening or Weekend Class Schedule

Each fall, the Evening & Weekend MBA Program admits four cohorts of approximately 60-65 students each: two cohorts of evening students and two cohorts of weekend students.

When you apply, select your preference for evening or weekend classes, which the school is generally able to accommodate. Both schedule options include all required core courses and a selection of pertinent and popular electives. You can also enroll in electives in the other schedule option. Classes are held in the fall and spring semesters (1-2 courses are also available each summer), with other activities year round.

Students have one opportunity to switch between the evening and weekend schedule options after their third semester in the program (before electives begin).

Evening Schedule Option

Classes are held Monday through Thursday from 6:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., with a 45-minute break. First-year students attend classes two nights each week, either Monday and Wednesday or Tuesday and Thursday. Evening courses are held at the Haas School in Berkeley. Shuttles are provided from locations in the South Bay and Peninsula.

Weekend Schedule Option

Classes are held Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. for students during their first three semesters in the program, and from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. during their last three semesters, with two 15-minute class breaks and one 60-minute break for a catered lunch. Weekend classes are held at the Haas School in Berkeley. Easy access from freeways and airports makes the weekend option viable for students who live outside the San Francisco Bay Area. Airport shuttles are provided from the San Francisco and San Jose airports.
