Successful Graduates

Our graduates are leaders in their fields, working for CPA firms, banks, financial service companies, healthcare organizations, and a variety of other companies, including some among the Fortune 500. Others are working in non-profit organizations and churches, and many pursue graduate school.

Internships

Supporting our classroom curriculum is an internship program in which students receive college credit while learning valuable work experience by working part-time at corporations, banks, financial service firms, hospitals, and government agencies.

Accelerated Bachelor’s/Master’s Plan (5 Year BS/MBA)

This is a 4+1 (5 year) plan that gives you the opportunity to complete the MBA program in one academic year (+ May term) after receiving a bachelor’s degree. With faculty approval, students take a specific set of MBA prerequisites during their undergraduate program, apply to the MBA program during their senior year, and take an MBA class during their senior year if qualified. The student then completes the MBA program the following year.

Pre-Law

Pre-Professional Program

William B. Greene Jr., School of Business & Technology

Pre-Law

William B. Greene Jr., School of Business & Technology

Milligan College does not recommend or offer a major in “pre-law” as such. This stand is in keeping with both the broad educational philosophy of Milligan College and the philosophy expressed by the Statement of the Association of American Law Schools on Prelegal Education. American law schools do not encourage the undergraduate student to “learn the law,” but rather stress the necessity of the pre-law student’s acquiring certain comprehensive skills, such as “comprehension and expression in words,” “critical understanding of human institutions and values,” and the development of “creative power of thinking.” While a student planning for a specific phase of the law (e.g., tax law) may find certain undergraduate majors or courses desirable (e.g., business or accounting), any solid academic major is equally acceptable to American law schools and recommended by Milligan College.

Students considering law school who wish to have exposure to foundational legal subjects are encouraged to obtain a minor in Legal Studies. The courses in Milligan’s Legal Studies minor are designed to enhance knowledge of the American legal system, the legal profession and foundational legal topics. Embracing a Christian world-view, the Legal Studies minor will help students develop an appreciation for the unique responsibility Christian legal professionals have in society.
