Tuition and fees for both 32-credit hour programs are approximately $20,175 ($600/hour + fees), less than half the average cost of an MBA at many universities. We also don’t have any hidden fees. Financial aid is available for graduate students. Ask us how our costs compare to other similar institutions and programs!
Increase and improve your business knowledge while thinking critically about your role as a positive influence in the workplace. In addition to learning theories and practices, you’ll also be challenged to think about the ethical implications of your decisions. You’ll see that the emphasis throughout the MBA is on integrating practical business skills with a concern for Christian ethics, professional responsibility, and leadership development.

Concentrations: Please note that as of Spring 2020, the Milligan MBA will no longer offer concentrations in Healthcare, Leadership, and Operations Management. This change was made as part of Milligan’s ongoing assessment and curriculum improvement process. Both the Executive MBA and the Accelerated Traditional MBA place an emphasis on business leadership that explores leading-edge business principles and management concepts from a Christian perspective.
You’ll progress through the MBA with a cohort of classmates. Each cohort becomes a tight-knit group of friends, colleagues, and students, all of whom are expected to contribute to the group’s learning and overall experience.
In The Milligan MBA, you’ll be taught by qualified business faculty. Teaching you is more than a job to our faculty — it’s a mission. They are dedicated teachers, experienced professionals, and trusted mentors who invest time, energy, and ideas to inspire you and help you reach your highest potential. They bring to the classroom a broad range of business, industry, and consulting experience, as well as outstanding academic credentials. While their primary focus is teaching and mentoring, many are also involved in academic research, publishing articles and books, and serving in professional organizations. This keeps them up-to-date and ready to share the latest and most timely information with our students. Read more »
