Accreditation is an important factor to consider when selecting an academic institution. Accreditation is the process by which the quality and standards of colleges and universities are verified and upheld. Milligan is pleased to hold SACSCOC accreditation, which accredits the entire institution and its programs, including the MBA. SACSCOC accredits degree-seeking institutions in the South, including the University of Tennessee and East Tennessee State University.
Some business programs also hold specialized accreditation by business-specific accreditors. These specialized accreditations are a further endorsement of quality but not necessarily required in the business profession. SACS accreditation blankets the entire institution and ensures the student a quality education, financial aid opportunities, ability to transfer credits easily, and a promising professional future.
Individuals who already hold an MBA or equivalent degree who meet the MBA admission criteria can earn an Executive Certificate in one of these concentrations. Read more »
