Part-Time MBA

The Part-Time MBA option allows students to continue working while completing the MBA program. This option is ideal for students with competing personal or professional demands, who are only able to commit to a maximum of two course credits per semester.

Students with business undergraduate degrees can complete the program part-time as quickly as 24 months starting in the Fall. Students with a non-business undergraduate degree can complete the part-time program anywhere between 28 to 36 months by completing Foundation Business courses during the Spring/Summer semesters. Individuals with an undergraduate degree in any discipline can start the Part-Time program during the Spring or Fall intake.

“Ryerson is a hub in many ways. To me, it is a hub for innovation. The classes taught by industry leaders expanded my knowledge on topics affecting industries today, and my participation in student-led groups strengthened my voice. The MBA program pushed me to dive into my passion head first by giving me the tools and network to make a greater impact. I have completed one year as a part-time student, and I am excited to continue because I recognize that the possibilities are endless.”
