The Midland MBA Price Point: Factory, or Faculty?

When discussing the value of an MBA, it’s hard not to talk about cost. Even though the value of an MBA goes far beyond salary increases—additional benefits range from networking to increased patience and persistence—cost is still a significant factor in students’ decisions to invest in an MBA.

The Curriculum of the Midland MBA

The cohort model and core curriculum offered at Midland is an integral part of the value of the Midland MBA. Within this model, we offer a strong core curriculum—one that is the same (or very similar) for all students throughout the course of the program. This cohort model, tied in with the expanded core, allows students to succeed and learn together. By learning and succeeding together as a group all throughout the program, every student who earns a Midland MBA will graduate with the skills they need to turn in-the-classroom learning into real, tangible success in the business world.

4 Reasons Why You Should Consider Taking Hybrid Courses
