The Professional MBA Association (PMBAA) is committed to enhancing the Leeds Professional MBA experience for all evening and hybrid MBA students.  Due to the uniqueness of earning a masters degree while balancing a full time work schedule, family demands, and career changes, the PMBAA ensures students have access to enriching extracurricular activities, taking into account what precious little time students have to spend away from their commitments.  We provide steady communication between PMBA students, the MBAA, and CU Leeds administration and faculty to continually improve the experience for everyone involved.

Leadership within the PMBAA is composed of second year students, elected during the Spring of the first year of the program. The PMBAA includes an Executive Leadership Board (the Board) and a Chair Committee.  It consists of the President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer. The Chair positions are intended to be dynamic and serve the specific strengths of the individuals who hold them as well as the needs of the Professional MBA student body.
