Kogod Introduces New Professional MBA Program

By Lindsey Anderson and Anna Miars

Working professionals in Washington, D.C., take note: Kogod’s new Professional MBA degree program was designed with you in mind.

The new part-time program features the same comprehensive management core curriculum and renowned faculty as the existing MBA program, but with a structure that specifically caters to students who hold full-time employment.

Those looking to advance their careers can complete the rigorous degree program in only 27 months. Classes will be held one evening per week, limiting commuting time while maximizing other instructional resources.

"The program recognizes the busy lives of working-professional students, and is designed in a way that allows them a hands-on Kogod education with less time on campus," explained Dean Michael J. Ginzberg.

Concierge Services

Kogod’s PMBA program will allow students more time to focus on academics, their career, and their personal responsibilities, rather than the slew of administrative tasks that often accompany graduate school.

The all-inclusive program—the first of its kind offered in the D.C. area—includes: 

  • A global learning experience built in to the curriculum
  • Convenient concierge services, such as light meals before class
  • Comprehensive, all-inclusive tuition including textbook and software purchases

Additionally, an academic advisor will handle students' course registration; a career management advisor from the Kogod Center for Career Development will be accessible for one-on-one coaching.

Very few part-time MBA programs across the country offer such services and support.


The new program is exclusively open to working professionals. Students will advance through the program in a cohort, forging a wealth of valuable contacts and connections.

"This program combines the best aspects of business school education, and provides ample opportunities for student professionals to network and make connections with classmates, Kogod alumni, and D.C. professionals," said Director of Graduate Programs Anne Ferrante.

The degree program totals 48 credit hours and focuses on one course at a time, with two courses taking place back-to-back each semester over seven consecutive semesters.
