Graduate Hybrid Terms for Business
International students are required to be enrolled full-time and register for the appropriate course when applying for Curricular Practical Training (CPT) authorization.
The Professional Master of Business Administration (PMBA) requires students to be employed in a full-time or part-time position, complete an internship or perform job shadowing each semester they are enrolled in the program.
All applicants who have not completed undergraduate courses in any one or all of the following areas: Accounting, Finance, Economics, and/or Statistics, are to take undergraduate courses in these areas as prerequisites or take subject MBA/PMBA Primer pretests BEFORE admission to the program.
The MBA/PMBA Primer pretests are free of charge and may be taken only one time. If students do not score 70% or higher on the pretests, they must complete the corresponding preparatory modules. After completion of the modules, students must score 70% or higher on the post-tests to satisfy the prerequisite requirements.
The MBA/PMBA Primer includes individual courses and a comprehensive course which includes all of the courses combined. Students may take as much time as necessary to be successful in the MBA/PMBA Primer courses. Expect to spend between 20 and 30 hours total on the four modules and post-tests. Individual study time will vary. The entire course is web based. There is no textbook involved. The pretest or post-test scores will not appear on a student’s transcript at Campbellsville University. Students will not be admitted to the program until all prerequisite requirements have been met.
In addition to listed criteria for admission to the PMBA with IT Track program, a student must demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and experience necessary to compete successfully in the program. Students possessing a bachelor’s degree in business administration and at least two years of work experience will be considered to possess the necessary knowledge, skills, and experience to compete successfully in the PMBA program. For students who do not possess a bachelor’s degree in business administration, it may be necessary for the student to acquire background knowledge in selected business areas before enrolling in specific courses. See Foundational Requirements for the MBA/PMBA.

Each course in the MBA program has its own method for evaluating student performance. The particular methods of assessment will be explained to students and included in the written syllabus for the course at the beginning of each course. A student must maintain a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 throughout the program. All course grades assigned in the program are entered on the student’s official transcript and counted toward the cumulative grade point average. A student who earns a grade lower than C will be subject to academic dismissal. A student who earns more than two grades of C or lower will be subject to academic dismissal. A student may repeat a course in which a grade of C was earned; however, a course may be repeated only once. In cases where a course was repeated, both grades remain on the transcript, but only the last grade will count toward the grade point average. Student academic transcripts are reviewed at the end of each term of work. A student who fails to maintain a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 will be placed on academic probation and will have one academic session to remove the probationary status or be dismissed from the program. A student will have six years from the date of entry into the program in which to complete all of the requirements for graduation.
In addition to the course/program requirements listed above, the PMBA hybrid courses must include verification and documents related to the work experience, which will be an integral component of the course grade.
