Non-Degree Program

The Non-Degree MBA program allows prospective students to begin taking PMBA courses before becoming matriculated. As a Non-Degree student you can take up to four PMBA courses (maximum of two per semester). These courses will count towards your MBA degree once you are accepted as long as you receive a grade of “B-” or better.

Benefits of the Non-Degree Program

  • If you have a low GPA, this is a good way to show the Admissions Committee that you can succeed in MBA-level courses.
  • If you missed the matriculation deadline, this allows you to still begin taking classes in the upcoming semester.
  • It’s a good way for students to get a feel for the PMBA program before fully matriculating.

Course Registration for Current Students

Current students in the Non-Degree program do not have to fill out another online application. Instead, they must complete an online course enrollment form.

As a Non-Degree student you will not be able to add or drop yourself from courses. All of your drop requests must be emailed to the PMBA office before the add/drop date.
