Our Professional MBA program at the University of Memphis is for ambitious men and
women already making their mark in the business world. It's designed specifically
for those driven to reach greater heights in their profession. The curriculum is
fast paced and hard hitting, with tough business problems that can only be solved
through hands-on learning. And our evening program fits a busy schedule, so you can
continue building your career while sharpening the tools you need for success.
The Professional MBA program is designed for full-time professionals who are interested
in taking classes part-time to accommodate their busy schedules (although students
may enroll on a full-time basis). Classes are primarily offered in the evening. At
least one year of full-time work experience is desired prior to admission. Students
typically choose one of the five approved concentrations. However, students may opt
for a 33 credit hour, no-concentration option, if desired.
Each candidate for an MBA degree must complete a minimum of 33 semester hours of course
work that include 30 hours of Core Knowledge and Skills. There are no prerequisite courses required for the core curriculum. Students who desire a concentration are required to take an additional 15 hours of
coursework beyond the 30 hour Core as per the specifications of each concentration.
Students who do not desire an MBA concentration are required to take a 3 hour elective
(approved by the MBA Program Director) beyond the 30 hour Core.
