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 you'll be guaranteed the classes you need when you need them, and you'll graduate on time. The Professional MBA program is unique in its delivery approach, utilizing a blend of virtual classes, online learning modules and once-a-month Saturday residencies in Dublin, Ohio.
Virtual classrooms meet no more than once per week at 6 p.m. or later. Virtual classes require a computer with a browser and a reliable, high-speed internet connection. You can attend virtual classes wherever it's convenient for you – 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 you the freedom to choose when and where you 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 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 5 p.m.
