Flex Track Options
The Flex Track allows students the greatest amount of flexibility in their educational experience. Students can complete their Bachelor’s degree either at Milligan or the Kingsport Academic Village, with the core of the program offered both places.
- Students interested in Ops Management can take the two concentration courses in Kingsport
- Students interested in Management can take the two track courses at Milligan
This allows students at either location to complete the concentration of interest, with flexibility to accommodate the location that best fits their personal and professional lives. Students attend the core classes at the location most convenient to them – Kingsport or Milligan. Then they select their concentration of choice and complete those two courses at the designated location. Milligan cohorts begin in August and Kingsport cohorts begin in February.
