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 required 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.
