Total credit hours for both degrees is 81, excluding prerequisites. Students must complete all prerequisites for both programs.
For the PMBA, students can use nine credit hours of MSBA core courses as electives in the PMBA program, or substitute MBA 5500 for MGMT 5200 and use six credit hours of PMBA electives toward the requirements for their MSBA electives. For the MSBA, students can use nine credit hours of approved PMBA electives toward the requirements in their MSBA elective concentration options. Students participating in this program must meet the admissions standards of both degree programs and must be admitted into the second program before completing at least 75 percent of the first degree program they enroll in.
