What Recent Grads Say See All 3 Comments >

The part-time program at UB required current full-time work. Therefore, they cater to and ensure that the program accommodates all students. The program staff cares deeply that each student is provided the tools to make them successful in the program and in their careers. They understand our schedules and the heavy workload the PMBA program entails. Thus, they do no bog us down with buying our own books or paying for any additional costs; it all rolls into our tuition for convenience. The program provides an appropriate mix of adjunct professors as well as faculty (most being adjunct). Which creates impressive learning opportunities in the business program.
