The Stetson School of Business and Economics at Mercer University presents theVirtual Professional MBA (PMBA) on the Atlanta, Macon and Savannah Campuses for business persons with at least four years of experience, who want to advance their careers to the leadership level in today’s corporate world. The program blends the current PMBA’s model with virtual classroom technology, allowing students across the state to study as one group at the Mercer Campus in their area. Faculty will rotate between the three campuses.

A distinct feature of the cohort Virtual PMBA program is the cross-functional, thematically based courses delivered in a virtual classroom environment. Unlike the MBA traditional model, which offers separate courses in such areas as accounting, finance, management and marketing, the Professional MBA curriculum demonstrates how these areas intersect and function together so candidates can gain the broad perspective needed for effective decision making.  With all candidates being experienced professionals, the virtual classrooms become an interactive-learning environment with the candidates contributing their experience to the dialogue with the highly credentialed faculty team. 

16-Month Program Format

Classes are held on Friday evenings and all day Saturday every two weeks, allowing even the busiest manager the opportunity to earn this professional degree from an internationally accredited business school.  Four retreats bring class locations in Macon, Atlanta and Savannah together and provide a concentrated study on specific business topics, including a weeklong Best Practices Field Residency, where students meet with top executives of companies successfully competing in today’s competitive market.

Academic Learning Environment

Classes will be led by faculty teams that bring extensive academic and corporate experience to the classroom environment. MBA candidates will learn through classroom discussions, presentations, team projects, research and technology-based interaction.

Throughout the program, candidates will learn from visiting business leaders. These executives will bring their insights and experience to the classroom as they discuss their companies and how they address the demands of competition in today's marketplace. The Field Residency experience allows students to experience business "across the globe."
