Attention early risers looking to get an MBA: Adelphi University, the Garden City, NY-based school, has just launched what they’re calling the amMBA, a part-time master’s business program where classes take place in the early morning rather than at night. According to a release put out by the school, courses will be held once a week from 7:00-8:50 am at Adelphi’s Manhattan Center campus, just a few blocks from the financial district in downtown Manhattan.
It’s an interesting idea, but it’s not the first time Adelphi has offered a non-traditional MBA format. In a story published earlier today about the amMBA, Crain’s New York mentions that the school once offered MBA classes in special train cars on the Long Island Rail Road as students/commuters traveled to and from work. But that format was eventually derailed.
