We refer to each entering class as a cohort. In the Professional MBA, a cohort is a group of students who begin coursework together and progress through the program, taking the same courses at the same time with the same group of people through graduation. The advantage to this type of program is that students are guaranteed the classes they need when they need them and they graduate on time. The Professional MBA Program is unique in its delivery approach, utilizing a blended delivery curriculum that employs virtual classrooms, online learning modules and once-a-month Saturday residencies.
Virtual classrooms meet six times per semester from 6:00 - 9:30 p.m. Virtual classes can be attended anywhere as long as the participant is in front of a computer with a browser and a reliable, high-speed Internet connection. Participants can attend virtual classes wherever it's convenient for them - at home, in the office, with study group members, or in a hotel room while traveling or on vacation.

Online Learning Modules
Asynchronous online learning modules give participants the freedom to choose when and where they study. Through the course management system, PMBA students access the modules at any time they choose from any location with an Internet connection.
Ohio University offers a convenient location for once-a-month Saturday classes on the Dublin Campus. Residencies bring all cohort members and faculty together in one location for presentations, group projects, and other collaborative activities. Saturday residencies meet for the entire day from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m.
