Students

Here at the David Eccles School of Business, we understand that a well-rounded business education is more than lectures and reading. Professional MBA students take the knowledge gained in the classroom and put it into practice.

This hands-on participation is an integral part of the School of Business student experience. The program attracts a high caliber network of professionals with proven experience and knowledge. And, because of the intimate size and experiential nature of the PMBA program, students have ample opportunities to form strong relationships and learn from one another. Regular after-work social events build a strong community, and many events include students’ families, extending the feeling of unity. Many students also participate in experiential learning opportunities via the school’s many clubs and professional centers like the Lassonde Entrepreneur Institute.

PMBA students with partners, spouses and children will find an inclusive environment that welcomes them all. From family-friendly social activities to resources for housing, partner employment searches, and childcare, we make it clear that families are an integral part of the School of Business experience. In fact, the Princeton Review ranks us third in the nation for the most family-friendly business school.

Alumni

The benefits of the Professional MBA Program continue well past graduation. They can endure long into your career. Whether you earned your degree in 1985 or 2014, you have a common connection with fellow PMBA alumni – the shared experience.
We want to help keep the network you created alive. The PMBA alumni community pages are designed to help you connect with the program, your fellow alumni and your alma mater. Alumni are encouraged to participate in exclusive events and activities tailored for PMBA students and graduates.
