If financing your part-time MBA is a concern, consider this unique benefit: as a working professional, you’ll have a steady income and the possibility of receiving tuition reimbursement from your employer. According to lists compiled by Business Insider, CNBC, and the Balance, there are a host of companies that help employees finance their MBA in the form of generous tuition reimbursement plans. With a little research into your company’s benefits, you may find that your employer does offer tuition reimbursement. Just be sure to inquire about the details and discuss your plans with your manager.
If this information isn’t readily available, schedule some time to speak with your manager about your interest, and explain how earning your MBA would benefit the company. (Hint: the BC MBA provides the market-specific experience and profession-ready skills you need to respond to your employers’ ever-changing needs.) You can also mention that BC’s flexible 4:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. class times and online learning options ensure that earning your MBA won’t compete with your work.
