Business school to offer weekend MBA
Beginning in the fall of 2002, students at the Haas School of Business will be able to earn an MBA degree by taking classes on Saturdays only. Half of the program will be offered in Silicon Valley, the first time the school has offered a degree program in the South Bay.

The weekend classes are an expansion of the school’s Evening MBA Program, which is ranked as one of the top 10 in the country.

The new option recognizes the economic importance of the South Bay and the fact that about half of the current Evening MBA students commute to their Haas classes from the South Bay.
