The MBA curriculum consists of three levels of coursework: foundation, core, and electives. The total amount of coursework required of the MBA student varies from 30 to 48 hours of academic credit depending on the amount of foundation coursework that can be waived with prior academic credit.
The MBA program can be completed in 12 months by a full-time student who has all of the foundation courses waived. For the full-time student with no previous academic credit in business, the program can be completed in 20 months.
The Millsaps MBA program has a long-established international study component. The European Study program is a three-week or six-week summer course of study conducted in such business and cultural centers as London, Paris, Munich, and Florence. During the semester break, after Christmas and before the spring semester begins, the MBA student has a wonderful opportunity to study in Mexico at the Millsaps College mini-campus in the Yucatán.
