As a PMBA student, I need a flexible course offering that fits my schedule. I greatly appreciate having been able to experiment both with courses more pertaining to my interests as well as experimenting with shorter course offerings in order to experience a wider variety of topics.

—Greg Marifian, Professional MBA 2024

The Same High Standards with Greater Flexibility

Our flexible online programs have the same high academic standards, accessible professors and learning outcomes as our on-campus programs. The key difference is that you learn on your schedule. We focus on a collaborative learning environment not only among students, but also among faculty and staff.

About Our PMBA Program

Our curriculum includes a comprehensive core plus 27 hours of electives. Start in the fall and attend classes two nights a week. After your first year, 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. Almost half of our PMBA alums are executives, VPs or in C-suite positions.
