Tennessee Tech's Hybrid, Industry-Immersed MBA was designed specifically with working professionals in mind. It offers an option for industry leaders to pursue their Master of Business Administration, without leaving their current position.
The program, which will combine online course content with monthly weekend meetings in Nashville, leverages the College of Business' strengths and expertise in online teaching and learning, and offers the added value of face-to-face networking with industry colleagues and faculty members.
BEST VALUE: Students who enroll in the first class of students participating in the hybrid MBA program will enjoy a tuition break, and will pay the same tuition and fees as students participating in the traditional program.
We are currently enrolling HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS for Cohort 2 of our hybrid, industry-immersed MBA program.

Master of Business Administration
Welcome to the MBA Program at Tennessee Tech University!
The purpose of the MBA degree is to offer a professional program preparing graduate students from diverse backgrounds for rewarding careers in organizations. The core area of business studies is broad in scope for the purpose of developing general managerial competence through extensive use of various pedagogies such as case methods, simulations, and research projects. Electives are used to develop special competencies of interest to the student.
The MBA Program is designed to allow students to pursue an on-campus program, a 100% online program or a combination of both. Our program has over a decade of online learning experience. Whether students take class on-ground or online, courses and professors are all the same and there is no difference between earning a degree online, or on campus.
Full-time and part-time programs are available for students to earn their degree at their own pace. Students can finish the 30-hour program in as little as one year. MBA students can receive a high-quality education at an affordable price at TTU. Geteducated.com lists our program a "Best Buy" and ranks us #15 on their list of 2013 Best Online Programs.
