Milligan MBA celebrates 5 years
MILLIGAN COLLEGE, TN (March 12, 2009) – This weekend Milligan College’s master’s of business administration program will celebrate its fifth anniversary. The business area will host a celebration luncheon on Saturday, March 14, at 12 p.m. in the McCormick Dining Center with guest speaker Dr. Jim Street.
Over the past five years, 101 students have graduated from the MBA program. It began in February 2004 with 21 students, and now approximately 70 students are currently enrolled. Milligan has also added more full-time faculty to the business area to help develop the graduate degree.
“Our MBA combines Milligan’s traditions of academic excellence and Christian servant-leadership in such a way that our graduates carry a strong Christian-based moral and ethical framework which they apply every day at their workplace,” said John Keyt, director of the MBA program. “Since the program is a hybrid of traditional and on-line delivery methods it has given our business faculty an opportunity to develop a broad array of teaching-learning experiences.”
The 18-month program is designed to prepare students for roles of leadership in business through a cohort-based, 40-credit hour degree. Students meet once a month on Milligan’s campus while keeping in contact with faculty and other students via internet throughout the course.
Milligan College’s MBA program is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) and is a member of the Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP).
