Hybrid Learning: Face-to-Face and Online
As a PMML student, you’ll obtain most of your two-year education online via pre-recorded lectures and real-time web-conferencing sessions. You’ll also gather three times in Atlanta for week-long meetings. These campus visits will enable you to develop stronger relationships with peers and faculty; yet they’re spread out enough that they won’t hinder your professional responsibilities.
Additionally, faculty support is available during virtual office hours.
Professional Master's in Manufacturing Leadership Cohort Program
A new group of students begin the PMML program each fall. Called a cohort, these classmates take each master’s course together (see chart below). They also collaborate on various projects and assignments. In addition to becoming a tight-knit group, which will benefit you in many ways, this team approach is a great way to increase your leadership and communication skills.
The PMML program includes 10 manufacturing leadership courses. To complete them within two years, you will register for two sequential seven-week courses per semester (one course at a time) for four semesters. Additionally, you’ll take one course for two consecutive summers. Finally, the program culminates with the capstone course that takes place in the last summer which is twelve weeks.
Using this approach, you will spend a total of three weeks on campus over a two-year period. Time spent on campus will occur in late summer of year 1, fall of year 2, and summer of year 2.
