MMC rolled out its first graduate program in 2015 as part of the Martin 2020 long-range plan and has future plans to add graduate degree programs in other disciplines, especially in areas that will serve the 13 counties of south central Tennessee.
“This area will be enriched and fortunate to have our graduates managing and directing businesses,” said MBA Director and Chairman of the Johnston School of Business Dr. Gregory Brown. “They will be the drivers of future local and regional growth opportunities because the hallmark of our MBA Program is giving our students a foundation for making sound business decisions coupled with high ethical standards. All of our graduates are equipped with the tools and skills necessary to lead businesses today and into the future.”
MMC’s MBA provides a rigorous and relevant business educational experience for the development of managers. The MBA curriculum is designed to afford learners many opportunities to study independently and in teams while building analytical, problem solving, and communication skills, preparing men and women for high-level leadership and management careers in public and private organizations.
