Professional MBA Program and Non-Matriculated Courses

The Professional MBA (PMBA) program is a part-time program for individuals that are early to mid-career that meets Tuesday and Wednesday evenings from 6:30 - 9:10 p.m. It typically takes three years to complete, but offers flexibility to shorten the program to two and a half years or lengthen it to five years. All applicants must have a minimum of one-year of full-time work experience and currently be working full-time.  

The PMBA program also offers the opportunity to take classes as a non-matriculated student in spring semesters before taking the GMAT or GRE.

Executive MBA Program

The Executive (EMBA) program is a full-time program for individuals that are in the middle of their career path and wish to pursue their MBA while they continue to work. Classes meet all day Friday and Saturday approximately every third weekend for four semesters. It requires that all students have a minimum of five years of full-time work experience and currently are working full-time. Typically our students have between 10 and 15 years of work experience.

Online Mini-MBA Certificate Program

The online Mini MBA is a certificate program and is a non-credit-bearing course. There are no degree requirements for the program. The course consists of seventeen separate modules that must be completed in order to receive a certificate of completion. It is ideal for those looking for an opportunity to gain or update their business skills in a variety of management-related areas.

*A program fee discount of 20% less than the standard rate is available for M&T employees for the programs listed above.
