Admission Notes:

  • As we limit the PMBA cohorts to 30 admitted students, we cannot guarantee admission for late candidates. If the cohort is full with qualified candidates prior to the May 15 deadline, we will offer a waitlist for a select number of applicants. We encourage all of our applicants to apply as early as possible in the calendar year.
  • The choice of start date (May, June or August) does not impact admission decisions. All students are part of the same cohort.
  • The admission process for the PMBA program is competitive. Applications are considered holistically – considering professional experience, recommendations, undergraduate/graduate coursework and GPA, the personal statement (writing, goals), and an interview (if offered). If you have questions about your eligibility and competitiveness for the program, we encourage you to reach out for a preliminary resume review.
  • The PMBA program is eligible for the Boise State tuition waiver. However, we cap the number of Boise State employees admitted to maintain diversity in the cohort. All Boise State employees are encouraged to apply by February 15 so they may be considered for limited seats.
