The UCF College of Business Administration (#UCFBusiness) is offering its Professional MBA (PMBA) program at UCF’s Sanford/Lake Mary Regional Campus with classes beginning August 2015. The UCF PMBA Sanford/Lake Mary will allow professionals who live or work in Seminole and Volusia Counties to earn an AACSB International-accredited MBA degree without interrupting their careers. This will be the second PMBA program offered at UCF Sanford/Lake Mary – the first class started in fall 2013 and will graduate this May.

The UCF PMBA is a 24-month program with a 39-credit hour curriculum. The program offers the rigor and depth of a traditional MBA while providing a convenient evening schedule, applicable content and networking opportunities for working professionals. Through its applicable curriculum, the UCF PMBA blends theory and practice by utilizing class discussion forums, case studies, interactive simulations, and team field projects. The program is offered as a cohort format which consists of a class size of 24 to 32 students starting and finishing the program together. The cohort format allows students to learn from each other through their wide variety of industry and functional area experiences. The cohorts form strong relationships which evolve into life-long friendships and an invaluable professional networking group.
