Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Scholarships are available!
While the majority of the students in our Professional MBA program are domestic students, we do enroll a small number of international students, who are typically working for local companies and currently hold a visa or are a permanent resident. The University of Arizona does not issue student visas for this program.
