Getting a Master’s degree is a rewarding strategy to get an edge in the business world and boost your confidence when pursuing the career you truly want. If you are considering enrolling in a Master of Business Administration program, there are a few different options available to help you get through school while balancing your other major responsibilities. MBA and PMBA programs will both provide you with a Master’s degree, but they vary in course scheduling and teaching techniques to help you get the information and skills you need to succeed.
Unique features of the PMBA program
While the MBA program is based on a more traditional school schedule, the PMBA is designed for working professionals with experience in the field of business. It combines online coursework with weekend classes held on campus, so course schedules are manageable even if you work full-time. The PMBA also places an emphasis on international business, and it is geared toward individuals with an existing background in business. If you have not yet gained valuable career experience in business, the MBA is a good option for you. There is still some flexibility in class scheduling, including evening courses, so the degree can be obtained while you are working.
Your degree timeline
Because the PMBA program consists primarily of weekend courses, it does take longer than the MBA to complete. The MBA program can be completed in as little as 12 months, and the PMBA takes at least 14 months. Students can complete either program over a longer period of time if necessary.
