Our students come from varied backgrounds; there is no one “right” or “wrong” background for a good PMBA candidate.

We’re Here to Help


Advance your career this year.

Our Admissions Committee, using a holistic approach with both objective and subjective criteria, carefully considers every PMBA applicant. In other words, there is no one “right” or “wrong” background for a good PMBA candidate. Each entering class is comprised of students with varied backgrounds, talents and interests. We consider every applicant’s academic ability, leadership potential, professional experience and career goals — and how well those are communicated to us.

Transfer Credits

Olin Business School will accept up to nine credits of graduate-level coursework taken at other AACSB-accredited institutions if the grades earned are “B” or above, the Academic Review Committee judges the courses to be equivalent to Olin classes in quality and content, and the credits have not been used toward the completion of another degree. Please submit the course syllabus and transcript to your academic advisor for any classes you’d like to be considered for transfer credit. The review process takes at least two weeks to complete. Please note, no transfer credit will be awarded until after the student has completed one semester here at Olin and is in satisfactory academic standing.
