Professional MBA


Program Objective

The objective of the Professional MBA program is designed to transform students who are admitted as undergraduate freshmen into consummate professionals, capable of assuming leadership roles in global business, industry, and commerce. These professionals are highly versed in both academic and professional competencies, have extensive corporate internship experiences, and are ready to meet the demands of leadership in the dynamic global economy.

Course Requirements

Admission Requirements to the Lower Division of the Professional MBA Program

Students formally enrolled in SBI’s Pre-Business program and have transitioned into the BS programs who elect to pursue the Professional MBA must apply to the University graduate school for admission. To be accepted, they must satisfy the following criteria:

• At least 90 hours of university course credit,
• Cumulative University GPA of 3.0 or higher,
• At least two (external) internships, and
• Take the GMAT (for students applying for Fall 2010 or subsequent admission).

Those students whose efforts to gain acceptance into the Professional MBA prove unsuccessful retain their otherwise satisfactory standing in the BS program.

Note: Students transferring into the Professional MBA program may be required to take additional courses to satisfy certain business related prerequisites and competencies for entering the program. These “additional” courses will not count toward fulfilling any of the other requirements of the Professional MBA Program.
