Two Cohorts to Choose From

Students are able to join the MBA in a cohort in January and August, forming a group of students on track to graduate together.  Students looking to take one class at a time for the majority of their MBA can begin in January, while those looking to complete the coursework as quickly as possible can start in August of each year.

Want to get started right away? There is an opportunity for students to jump in and take a class or two prior to the start of the next cohort.  Contact admissions to learn more about your options to get started.

To make planning easier, calendars outlining the meeting schedule for each cohort, as well as their curriculum outlines, can be found below.

A Hybrid Schedule

The Midland MBA’s hybrid structure has been proven to be at least as effective, if not more, than traditional business schools or online only classes.

All courses meet both in person and online, allowing you to benefit from the best of both worlds.

Each term runs for nine weeks, consisting of three in-person weekends and six distance weekends. The required in-person meetings give all students the chance to meet faculty and  work directly with classmates, while the optional online meetings can either be attended live or watched (and rewatched) in recordings. At the end of each term, all students have a one week break before starting new classes the following term.

Details of class meeting dates are outlined in the calendars above.
