Professional MBA (PMBA) Program Information

23-month Professional MBA

Florida Atlantic University's Professional MBA Program is an intensive 23-month program offering classes on the Boca Raton or Davie campuses.

The program allows participants to continue their professional responsibilities while earning a regionally-accredited MBA degree as full-time graduate students. Each class begins and progresses through the program as a group, sharing the same sequence of classes and educational experiences.

Many corporations nominate and sponsor fast-track employees for the Professional MBA Program. It is an effective way to insure that they will have qualified, professionally credentialed managers for the future.

Upon graduation, you will have achieved and conferred upon you the degree, Master of Business Administration.

The Professional MBA degree program begins each fall and spring semester and you can choose to attend at the Boca Raton Campus or the Davie Campus.

Boca Raton Campus: Tuesday and Thursday nights, 6:15 PM - 10:00 PM

Davie Campus: Monday and Wednesday nights, 6:15 PM - 10:00 PM

COVID -19 Message
The On-campus Professional Master of Business Administration (PMBA) program is delivered through live synchronous sessions during scheduled class days and times on Mondays and Wednesdays for the Davie Campus program, and on Tuesdays and Thursdays for the Boca Raton Campus program.  Additionally, asynchronous class lectures and mini-lectures are recorded and accessible on demand to enhance class study in our digital learning management system, Canvas.

When Florida Atlantic University is permitted to reopen our campuses for physical attendance—as determined by the State University System—Executive Education will resume on-campus classroom attendance according to established regulations.  Physical attendance in the classroom will be optional until effective regulations allow for a full return to on-campus immersion.
