Part time MS/MBA course on L1B visa

Asked over 2 years ago - Richmond, VA

Hi ,I am considering doing a part time MS/MBA course while in US on L1-B visa.
Is it possible ?If someone can dumb down the intricacies involved with this, it would be really great..

I joined Avvo today.I notice that I can seek legal and health advice here. I also need to talk to an education consultant to understand the benefits/pros/cons of opting for an part time course on L1. Can I also seek education related advice here . Please help.
