Abstract: Background: Several institutions in Ghana now offer part-time Masters Programmes in Business Administration for working professionals. Aim: To examine demographic and other characteristics that may be associated with increased burnout among working part-time MBA students in Ghana. Methods: 500 part-time MBA students of the Business School at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in Ghana were approached and asked to complete the Areas of Worklife Survey. Results: Of the 500 students approached and provided with information about the survey, 423 completed and returned the survey forms giving a response rate of 84.6%. Female students achieved significantly higher scores than male students with regards their perception about how unmanageability the quantum of the workload at their work place is while male students achieved significantly higher scores than female students when it came to their perception about fairness at the workplace. Also, while part-time workers tend to express significant disagreement about how unmanageability the quantum of their workload is, full-time workers are significantly more likely to perceive their work place as offering reward for performance. Conclusions: Part-time MBA students in Ghana experience burnout at work which is influenced by multiple inter-related factors.
