The King Graduate School offers a Professional Track (PT) for students enrolled in MBA, MPH, MPA, and MS programs who need professional development or work experience to supplement their program of study.
Students may be required to enroll in this track at the discretion of the admissions committee and/or Dean of the King Graduate School. Enrollment is based on a review of the student’s academic and professional experience. Students may pursue this track and a concentration of their choice.
Students on the Professional Track are required to enroll in and complete either a Graduate Professional Development course or a Graduate Professional Experience course during their course of study. Once enrolled on the Professional Track, credits are required in addition to core courses and elective/concentration courses in order to graduate. Each internship opportunity must be approved in advance by a Dean of King Graduate School as an appropriate match for the student's academic program.
A student may petition to a Dean of King Graduate to be waived from the professional experience track.
