Courses & Requirements

Course Checklist

The MBA degree allows a student to gain a broad perspective of various business disciplines. Most PMBA students come into the program with either no business background, or a previous business degree with narrow focus. The required classes introduce a wide range of business functions, and provide the quantitative and analytical foundation for the more rigorous, advanced classes in the second year.
