The Tulane Professional MBA (PMBA) program in Houston is designed for ambitious professionals with at least two years of work experience. Top candidates are academically strong, driven to succeed, and motivated to gain management recognition in their careers.
They value gaining advanced management knowledge and business expertise from a school recognized globally for its reputation and academic rigor.
Although significant work experience is not a key consideration for the Professional MBA program, the Committee will expect the candidate to have two years of full-time, postgraduate work experience and will also consider the candidate's initiative and level of professional responsibility.
The committee considers a candidate's professional background, past academic performance, and the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) results.
A bachelor's degree is required; however, neither a business degree nor specific business courses are required for admission. Official transcripts from the registrar of all colleges and universities attended must be requested by the candidate and sent directly to the applicable Admissions Office at Tulane University, Houston campus. Email and postal mail addresses are listed at the top of this page.
A resume detailing your employment history and academic background. List professional distinctions, affiliations, and activities.
Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT)
Acceptable GMAT test scores are required for admission into the program. To learn more about the GMAT and to schedule a test date, visit www.MBA.com . Our program code XVC-SG-47. We can access your official GMAT scores online within a few days of your test date. You will receive unofficial scores immediately after taking the GMAT. Please note that we also accept the GRE.
GMAT Alternative: In place of taking the exam, candidates can complete and pass three online prep courses from Harvard – Quantitative Methods, Financial Accounting and Spreadsheet Modeling. Contact us for special links to receive 50% off the cost of the courses.
The interview aids the Committee in assessing the candidate's strengths, motivations, personal commitment, and ability to meet the demands of the program. The interview also offers the candidate an opportunity to ask questions and discuss any individual concerns about the program. We strongly encourage applicants to schedule an interview early in the application process. To schedule an interview, contact us at 713.586.6400 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Two recommendations, attesting to the applicant's academic and professional abilities, are required. One recommendation should be from a high-ranking officer from the candidate's organization. A second should be from an immediate supervisor (or for self-employed applicants, a business associate) who has personal knowledge of the candidate's work.
A non-refundable $200 application fee is required. This fee can be paid online by credit card. This fee is waived for applicants who attend an information session within the past year.
