Professional MBA Flex



The Jindal School’s Professional MBA Flex program’s mission is to help working professionals take the nationally ranked PMBA curriculum through a flexible format. The PMBA Flex program allows students to complete the entire PMBA on their own schedule and pace. Students can start the program at fall, spring, or summer semester and can take courses on-campus in Richardson or at the McKinney Collin Higher Education Center campus. They can also take courses online.

Students in the PMBA Flex program determine when they will take courses, how many, and can select up to two concentrations. The program is designed for individuals who have no business education or business experience and is intended to help provide a degree for those looking to change or add to their knowledge and skill set for a career change or job switch. They may take up to 6 years to complete the PMBA.

The PMBA Flex is also geared for those individuals who are looking for a more self-directed curricular experience allowing them to move in and out of the degree plan based on work or personal needs.

Please contact us to learn more about the PMBA Flex program.
