Program Overview

Today, corporations are looking for professionals who can solve unstructured business problems and present workable solutions. With a Simon Business School Professional MBA, you’ll learn those skills through a challenging academic curriculum. Simon MBA programs provide a well-rounded, rigorous business education that prepares you to become a strong and successful leader.

Professional MBA (PMBA) Program

The Simon Professional MBA is designed for students working full time.  This exceptional program can provide you with the opportunity to achieve your goals in a collaborative and supportive environment that devotes special attention to your individual success.  The PMBA program features the same curriculum as our full-time MBA and delivers a cohort-style experience for core courses, with assigned study teams, support services, and scholarships available to all students.

The cohort begins each fall—with students taking two courses per quarter and completing the program as quickly as 2.5 years and on an average in 3.3 academic years.  Students take nine core courses, of which six are taken with a cohort in a structured sequence. Subsequently, each student selects 11 electives to complete their desired concentration(s).  You may matriculate into the program in any other quarter but will not follow the same course sequence as the cohort.  

You’ll meet your team at orientation, where professionals with similar backgrounds, experiences, and career goals are identified and brought together. From there, you and your teammates will get to know one another and establish goals and expectations, group study times, activities, and other methods for working together effectively. You’ll find that the personal relationships forged during the program will keep you motivated, grow your business network, and create friendships that will last a lifetime.
