Fall 2018

Important Change in the PMBA Course Delivery Schedule

As part of our goal to increase course diversity and program flexibility, the PMBA program is converting the 16-week semester from a 12-week + 4-week intersession to an 11-week + 5-week intersession. It is our hope that having a longer intersession will help us to diversify the types of courses we can offer and the days we can deliver them (not all course material is conducive to an all-day Saturday delivery as we have now). In the future, it is our plan to add a few web-delivered intersession courses which we have been unable to offer historically given the short intersession window.

The 11-week courses will be offered 6:00 – 9:40 pm. Intersession will be offered over six weeks in the fall semester (an added week due to Thanksgiving week) and five weeks in the spring semester. Courses may be offered in the traditional four Friday nights and four all-day Saturdays. Alternative intersession delivery may include two weeknights each week or a combination of weeknights and a few all-day Saturdays. We plan to continue to offer a set of intersession hybrid courses that include recorded lectures coupled with a few all-day class sessions. Adding a diversity of intersession scheduling options will better meet the scheduling needs of our students and provide a greater diversity of classes.

Professional MBA courses in Cedar Rapids are conducted at the Cedar Rapids Center at 221 2nd Ave. SE, Suite 300. See locations for more information.
