About our PMBA program

Our PMBA curriculum includes a comprehensive core to increase your business acumen, plus 27 hours of electives to allow you to pursue your interests. Start in the fall and attend classes two nights a week. After your first year of core courses, electives are available in weeknight, weekend and weeklong formats. Plus, you have access to full-time advisors, a robust alumni network and exposure to corporate partners.


The same high standards with greater flexibility

Our Professional MBA program has the same high academic standards, professors and courses as our Full-Time MBA program. While class engagement and participation are a signature of the Olin education experience, we understand professional students need flexibility to balance work, life and studies. That’s why we offer remote participation for an entire semester. And you can access course recordings up to three times a semester due to issues like business travel or family needs.
