The application process for the Midland MBA is made up of two parts: an online written application and an interview. The online application captures basic personal information, and we ask for a personal statement, a resume, and a reference form (not letters of recommendation) in support. After the completion of the written application, we will set up a time to meet you for the in person interview.
No, it does not. Unlike many other programs, the Midland MBA does not require a business degree, prerequisite courses, or a GMAT score; we strive for a diverse student body which brings many backgrounds and experiences to the program, broadening all students’ understanding of business applications and programs.
Midland University offers two ways for students to receive credit from previous graduate level courses and/or from prior experience.
Transfer credit: Have previous graduate level business credit? Those seeking to transfer in completed graduate level coursework may request a transfer credit evaluation to determine which courses may transfer into the Midland MBA. All credit must have been earned in the last seven (7) years with a B (3.0) grade or higher for transfer consideration per the Midland University general transfer policy. Students are required to complete, at minimum, 60% of graduate credit through courses at Midland University.
Credit for Prior Learning: To ensure a valuable usage of the time of those with a business background, we offer a “prior learning path.” Using the prior learning path, students who have completed relevant coursework or have extensive experience in topics covered that may apply to take a 1-credit version of the related course and be awarded three credits upon completion. To earn credit for prior learning path, students must show proof of national or international certification (such as Project Management Professional certification from PMI), complete challenge exams (a Midland administered exam in a specific topic, such as Accounting), or submit a portfolio that provides evidence of knowledge and expertise in a given area, such as Management & Leadership.
The Midland MBA’s curriculum is divided into three main parts: the Strategic Course block, the Analytical Course block and the Business Consulting Capstone experience. Students will choose 15 credit hours (5 courses) from each of the course blocks and will also participate in the team-led Business Consulting Capstone. A student may enroll in the capstone course after successfully completing 15 credit hours towards their MBA at Midland.
The Midland MBA tuition costs are $627 per credit hour. In our program, unlike many others, you can continue working while you earn your degree. What’s more, the cost of our program is also offset significantly by our generous scholarship program, making the monetary investment into your MBA much less than you might expect.
Yes. Thanks to the ongoing support of generous donors, the Midland MBA is able to offer extensive scholarship opportunities for the incoming MBA class. In addition, graduate students in Midland’s MBA program are eligible for federal student aid regardless of income. The vast majority of our students have been eligible for federal aid which, when combined with the scholarships offered by Midland, covers the full cost of the MBA program.
Finding a proper balance between work, life, and school during any MBA program is going to be a challenge no matter how the course is laid out. Midland’s MBA program provides busy professionals the opportunity to earn their MBA without leaving work full-time, which many other programs do not. Our program is designed to be accessible to business professionals with a desire to succeed and grow in their careers, but who have other commitments outside of school.
