Part-Time MBA in Financial Planning

Either online or on campus, the part-time DeSales MBA program provides you with more than theories and tools for a successful career — it provides you with opportunities to discuss and apply what you have learned in a supportive environment.

Top-ranked by US News and World Report, the DeSales MBA program is the second largest in Pennsylvania for five years running. Known for our superior personal service and unparalleled flexibility, our advisers will work with you from our application process through graduation.

With our open enrollment policy, you can start the program at any point throughout the year. You don't need a degree in business, logistics, or a related field; foundation classes are offered for those who need a basic understanding of business principles. And, a GMAT waiver is available to those who qualify. Our flexible program can be completed entirely online, customized especially for you to fit into your busy life.
