What’s life like as a Professional MBA student? It’s busy – but rewarding. As a working professional, students are learning inside and outside of the classroom. With a comprehensive business curriculum, an ongoing entrepreneurial project, and a focus on communication skills, students leave as well-rounded leaders.
In This Section:
The PMBA cohort is a diverse group of 30 other motivated professionals who complete the program together. This allows deep connections and friendships to grow. Students learn from each other and build relationships that last long after the final course. There is no time wasted with introductions to new classmates. Instead, the group dives in with each course to immediately engage and learn.
Not only are our faculty experts in their field, but they care about you and your education. Your professors are committed to teaching and interacting with students. They bring business concepts to life with real-world assignments and engaging class discussions. PMBA faculty invest in relationships outside of class too – through office hours or advising with career goals.
A Sensible Pace
PMBA students successfully balance work, school, families and other passions. With classes Monday – Thursday nights, weekends are free. Courses generally start at 6pm to give time to commute from work. There is significant time off during the months of May, July and August to recharge and refresh.
During Orientation, each new cohort is introduced to their team – a group of 4-5 other students that you will work with throughout the program. The team is carefully selected to enhance learning through diversity of backgrounds, industries and areas of expertise. These teams work together for the duration of the program on an entrepreneurial idea as well as on assignments for individual classes. The team helps to manage workload, supplement learning and create a strong network.
