Will I be able to work while attending the program?
Due to the intensive nature of our curriculum, scheduling dedicated time for employment may be difficult. Regular classes take place five days a week; in the case of condensed courses with visiting faculty, one class may meet multiple times each week for the duration of two or four weeks. In addition, our curriculum runs parallel to academics and includes workshops, guest lecturers, site visits, interest group activities and one-on-one counseling.
Students are expected to prioritize their studies and the professional development activities. If you are intent on holding a part-time job, we advise you to take special care when scheduling work hours; you must be responsible for all of your course-work and group projects and be flexible with regards to the ebb and flow of our intense academic workload.
