14 Months, One Saturday a Month (online/blended)
Classes meet one Saturday per month over approximately 14 months. Onsite sessions occur approximately once a month, on Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The sessions are complemented by several weeks of on-going discussion, class participation, and other assignments, all facilitated by faculty using Internet-based resources. This provides flexibility in scheduling, while at the same time providing a thorough and in-depth program of study. Students will need to bring a laptop to class. Lunch is provided on Saturday during the onsite session.
New cohorts start each March and September.
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. That’s why work experience is an important admissions criteria. We assemble cohorts representing a variety of professional and academic backgrounds, ensuring that students are exposed to a wide range of business practices and ideas.
Tuition and fees for the 14-month, 32-credit hour program are approximately $19,275 ($600/hour), which is 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. Learn about available aid and payment options »

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.
Milligan College is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award baccalaureate, master’s, education specialist, and doctoral degrees.
