*PMBA Capstone is a two full-day business simulation offered only in the fall and spring trimesters. In fall, one class section will be offered on Saturdays. In spring, two class sections will be offered – one held on Saturdays and one held on Thursdays two weeks immediately after the spring break. The capstone can be taken when a student has completed at least 39 credits.

**Students with a dual concentration will complete the program in ten trimesters, i.e., it will take one trimester longer.
