Onboarding Experience

All new graduate MBA students will participate in an onboarding experience before or within the first term of entering the program. This experience is designed to help incoming students get familiar with their classmates, adjust to the social and performance aspects of graduate studies to be prepared, productive, and successful in school contributions.

As part of this onboarding experience, Midland prepares new students for the interpersonal dynamics that students will experience during their time in the MBA program. The onboarding includes the completion of the Emergenetics profile along with modules on teamwork, communication, emotional intelligence, and managing your program.

Onboarding is offered three times throughout the year, in August, January, and May. The onboarding experience is held at the Midland University Omaha location the weekend before classes start. Specific meeting times will be announced to all enrolled students in advance.
