Professional MBA Program
Professional Master of Business Administration Program
Study at your own pace and accelerate your career with a nationally ranked MBA from one of the most diverse and fastest growing University of California campuses. The UCR Professional MBA program is for professionals who want to build their professional skill sets without interrupting their careers. With a highly flexible curriculum, you can tailor the program to your professional aspirations.
The Professional MBA mirrors the flag-ship MBA with the same curriculum and the same world-class faculty. You will learn from distinguished scholars and practitioners who have unmatched academic credentials and pursue new applied research projects. The Professional MBA can be completed in as little as 21 months on a full-time basis or over the course of several years as you drive your career forward.
The Professional MBA is a STEM-designated degree program (science, technology, engineering and math). International students in a STEM-designated program are able to apply for 36 months of Optional Practical Training (OPT) to work in the United States in their field of study after graduation. All international students must take a minimum of 12 units per quarter to remain in compliance with visa requirements, and therefore, cannot take the program on a part-time basis.
The Professional MBA Program is accepting applications for Fall 2022.
GMAT/GRE is Optional
As COVID-19 has caused disruption to the global standardized testing infrastructure, and in an effort to support our prospective students, the University of California, A. Gary Anderson Graduate School of Management will not require the GMAT or GRE exam for applicants for Fall 2022.
