PMBA Curriculum and Concentrations

The decision to pursue a MBA is not one to be made lightly. The curriculum is rigorous, the time requirement is demanding, and the investment is significant. There are typically two reasons that prevent academic success – lack of time management and lack of a strong grounding in quantitative areas. You should expect a time commitment of at least 15-20 hours every week during the program. This can require significant planning given other job and personal responsibilities, and we recommend creating a specific plan prior to the start of classes.

Our program is based on the essentials we believe provide the foundation for success in the business world: innovation, entrepreneurship, strategic leadership, and professional development. We provide you with rigorous, application-based, thorough knowledge of the following business disciplines.
