General M.B.A.

Offered online, on-campus or in a hybrid format, our AACSB-accredited General M.B.A. propels your management career forward.

General M.B.A. Degree

The Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) degree at Mississippi College provides a broad-based, rigorous curriculum that develops competency in general management skills and in the key functional areas of business. Typically completed in one to two years, our General M.B.A. program is fully AACSB-accredited, the top business school credential internationally, signifying our strong dedication to business education. 

As the largest M.B.A. program in the Jackson, Mississippi metro area, Mississippi College has created a General M.B.A. that conveniently fits into the lives of working professionals. The flexible curriculum for the General M.B.A. also allows students to switch between on-campus and online courses, if necessary. Having the option to complete the two-year M.B.A. program completely online, at Mississippi College’s campus or in a hybrid format, offers flexibility to our graduate business students balancing their program with other responsibilities. We strive to make the cost of our M.B.A. as affordable as possible, offering the lowest M.B.A program tuition in Mississippi.

General M.B.A. Curriculum

Designed primarily for professionals who desire to further their careers, the General M.B.A. program grants students a comprehensive overview of the core business disciplines: accounting, finance, marketing, organizational behavior, economics and statistics. Nearly all our professors hold Ph.Ds in their field in addition to providing mentorship and practical insight from their business management experiences.

Along with the management focus, our General M.B.A. program situates business in a global context which is vital for students pursuing a position at multinational corporations as well as understanding the implications on the local economy. With Mississippi College’s Christian tradition, our M.B.A. program also infuses business ethics into our management courses. While ethical integrity is important for every business person’s career, those seeking management careers in the public sector or at Christian nonprofits could especially benefit from this focus.
