Full course descriptions

Foundational Core (12 credits)

The foundational core is designed to assure that all students have a master's level understanding of four core concepts before proceeding to advanced coursework. The coursework may be partially waived via the professional experience path for students who can demonstrate significant accomplishment in any of the following areas.

Required Advanced Core (18 credits)

The required core expands on foundational concepts to create a functional understanding of advanced business competencies. Every Midland student will take the following 3-credit courses, and will progress together in lock-step:

Business Consulting Capstone (3 credits)

Students will develop analytic and presentation skills, as well as a project portfolio to take with them during an in-depth final consulting experience that functions as an MBA capstone.
During their final term, students will work with a company abroad on a project developed in partnership with a host business and a faculty advisor, ideally focused on an area of growth for their own career.  From this work, they will develop a consulting report and present this analysis in a formal setting as a capstone presentation. Students will also have the option to remain home working with a local company focusing on an aspect of their global operations.

Electives (9 credits)

Students will have the opportunity to take 9 credits of elective course work to develop their skills in areas of particular interest. Completion of two elective courses in a specified topic area will complete the requirements for concentrations. Specific elective offerings vary from year to year, but have included:
