Program Description

MBA Preparatory Program - The Pre-MBA Program

The Pre-MBA Program is a 13-week program designed to prepare students to pursue an MBA degree by providing a basic understanding of business concepts and practices that are an essential part of the standard business curriculum for most MBA programs in the United States.

Program Overview

The Pre-MBA program at the University of Dallas College of Business was established in 1971.

Since that time over 1600 students from more than 75 different countries completed this challenging thirteen-week preparation program and moved on to the MBA programs of their choice.

Students also practice both written and oral presentation skills essential for business.
