The UT Dallas Professional MBA Program
The PMBA at the Jindal School of Management

A Suite of MBA Program Formats Tailored for Working Professionals

The Professional MBA programs help working professional learn to think, plan and act strategically in a competitive global marketplace. The PMBA program focuses on teaching students to develop business solutions by utilizing strong analytical problem-solving skills, team oriented approaches and strategic planning.

While all Professional MBA students complete the 53 semester credit hour curriculum (29 core and 24 elective), students can choose to complete the degree plan through several different formats:

  • PMBA Evening Cohort: This format admits 60 fully-employed professionals every Fall semester to take courses twice a week in an accelerated 24 month program. This format allows working professionals to take all 29 core courses together, creating an effective networking team approach to the PMBA curriculum.
  • PMBA Flex: The Professional MBA Flex program allows students to complete the entire PMBA on their own schedule, pace and focus. Flex Students can start the PMBA in Fall, Spring, or Summer semester, and can take courses on-campus or online. PMBA Flex students determine when they will take courses and how many.
  • PMBA Online: Students can complete the entire PMBA online following a similar format to the PMBA Flex. While students can complete the entire Professional MBA online, it is important to note that not all electives are offered online at this time so there may be some limited choice in elective courses/concentrations.

A majority of PMBA Flex and Online students work full-time and take classes on a part-time basis, normally 6 semester credit hours (two courses). To accommodate working professionals, classes typically are offered between the hours of 4:00 – 10:00 PM (Monday through Friday). For an online course demo, click here.
