Student Life

A “warm and welcoming” environment permeates the business school at Millsaps, where students say, “It’s very easy to make friends” and get involved in the campus com­munity. Most MBA candidates are “very intelligent but also have great social skills,” making them ideal companions both inside and outside the classroom. Within this “close-knit” community, the “business school clubs always have different activities that keep a strong cohesiveness within the student body throughout the semesters.” Millsaps is a residential college, where “Most undergraduates live on campus, while most MBAs live off campus.” Even if they don’t shack up in the dorms, full-time MBA candidates may still be highly involved with the school community. Here, both undergrads and graduate students “are able to participate in IM activities and other functions the school puts on (plays, concerts, varsity games etc.)”By contrast, there is “not a great deal of campus life” for part-time MBA candidates. Balancing schoolwork with professional and family commitments, older students would love to see “more resources for parents with children.” At the same time, “Millsaps has gone to lengths to make the EMBA students feel welcome and as much a part of other Business School activities as we are able to or wish to participate in.” A part-time student assures us, “Even with our really busy schedules with work and school, we are still able to enjoy every aspect of life.”


The Else School Career Center assists undergraduate and graduate business students in their internship or job search; they are also available to Else School alumni. The Career Center organizes networking events and career fairs on campus, offers resume and inter­view assistance, and runs career-related workshops throughout the year. Through the Career Center, business students also have access to numerous online job boards. While students say their career prospects look good, they also say the school could “make sure that working students (older students) are aware of career fairs, career opportunities,” which are generally directed at recent graduates.Not only is a Millsaps education “highly regarded in the region,” it is the “only accred­ited MBA in Jackson,” so students have a serious advantage in the local job market. Plus, the school’s faculty has strong ties in the local area, so “Communication and networking are easily facilitated here.” Outside the Jackson area, there may be fewer opportunities to translate a Millsaps MBA into a top-notch job offer. Almost all of Millsaps business grad­uates take positions in the South.

Students Say

A cozy place to get an MBA, Else School of Management at Millsaps College maintains a friendly “small-college feel” alongside a “strong reputation for academic excellence” throughout the South. With its pleasant, liberal arts atmosphere, “You feel welcome no matter where you are on campus, and the size gives you a warmth you wouldn’t expect” from a top-rated business program. The intimate environment really distinguishes the Else School experience, in which “Faculty and staff always take a personal interest in helping students reach their goals.” Thanks to the low MBA enrollment, students can also count on having “smaller class sizes” throughout the graduate business program, giving them a chance to interact closely with their professors, as well as their classmates. From economics to marketing, “The atmosphere of class is always full of discussion and open-minded conversation.”The only Millsaps department to confer graduate-level degrees, Else offers a Masters in accounting, as well as a full-time MBA program for traditional students and an Executive MBA for mid-career managers. The full-time MBA is comprised of foundation, core, and elective courses; foundation courses may be waived for students with an undergraduate degree in business. Depending on their previous preparation, students entering the pro­gram post-college can finish the MBA in anywhere between one to three years, though “There is a fast track” for current Millsaps undergraduates, which allows them to obtain an MBA with just one additional year of study. For EMBA students, it can be a challenge to balance work, family life, and academics. Fortunately, busy part-timers feel support­ed by the school’s faculty, and say the “Administration is very personal and helpful” in response to student concerns.Boasting both real-world know-how and a genuine dedication to teaching, Else School professors are “insightful, experienced, and entertaining.” Throughout the program, pro­fessors “do all they can to make the classroom experience worthwhile,” and the academ­ic experience is “engaging and very interactive.” Most importantly, students feel their education has immediate real-world applicability. The professors are “experts in their fields “and” stay on top of current events and trends. Academically, “Courses are tough, but you will definitely learn through rigorous application of theory.” Plus, “Instructors that take time to make sure the students understand the material,” and they are very “approachable” outside of class. Not only do they maintain office hours, professors “enthusiastically give their time to support students, even after the semester is over.”
