The Bard MBA program is structured around monthly Weekend Residencies with regular online instruction in between. This low-residency design allows full-time Bard MBA students to continue working up to 30 hours a week or to complete multiple internships over the two-year course of their study. The part-time program, completed over three years, accommodates students working 40 hours a week or more. Residencies are held once a month over four-day (Fri-Mon) weekends for full-time students and three-day weekends for part-time students.
