Professional Evening MBA

Committed to providing exceptional management education, our professional MBA is an excellent fit for working professionals looking for face-to-face classes that can accommodate busy schedules. Choose from classes at either our Raleigh main campus or our Research Triangle Park (RTP) location.

Advance Your Career on Your Schedule

This AACSB International-accredited part-time program features the same award-winning faculty, innovative curriculum and limited class sizes as our full-time program, but on a more flexible timeframe.

Students can select between two tracks:

  • Accelerated: Complete in as little as 21 months (including some weekend and/or international courses)
  • Flexible: Complete at your own pace within 6 years

Courses are offered on weekdays from either 6:00 p.m. to 8:50 p.m. or 6:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., depending on the particular course, and meet once a week. During the application process, you’ll choose between our two locations, Main Campus (Raleigh, NC) and Research Triangle Park.

Professional Evening MBA students will complete two mandatory 3-day residencies on NC State’ Main Campus. Active duty military may waive this residency requirement and replace with another elective course.

Class size is restricted to ensure opportunities to exchange ideas and learn from both students and faculty. Typically, you will spend two to three hours studying for every hour that you’re in the classroom.

The knowledge and skills you will acquire as a Professional MBA student can have an immediate impact on your own work – often applicable the day you learn it – and can open new doors for career advancement.
