Part Time vs Full time MBA
A Part-time MBA would mean a steady flow of income and a path without any break in your career. By joining the program, professionals would at least need over $50,000 in funding. In some cases, the employer may even pay for the education.

But supporters of Full-time MBA will argue that the course is an intense experience; an experience that involves interaction with a diverse experienced group of peers, traveling to global locations and solving local problems, and interning on different job functions & industries – an intensity that is lacking in a part-time MBA.

INSEAD MBA Admissions team knows that leaders have one unifying quality – “they have an encyclopedic awareness of their Strengths and Weaknesses.”
