Most Affordable MBA in the Region

Midway University is proud to offer one of the most affordable MBA degrees in the region. In fact, we recently lowered tuition to $475 per credit hour. Students only need to earn 30 to 33 credit hours*, depending on the MBA degree they choose. This adds up to just $14,250 to earn the general MBA degree. Additionally, students can earn their degree in just 12 months – saving time, as well as money.

*If the applicant’s degree is not in the area of business, in addition to the listed 30 hours for the general curriculum the student must successfully complete BUSM 501 Foundations of Graduate Business (an additional 3 credit hour course) within the first term of enrollment in the MBA program.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median annual wage for management occupations was $102,450 in May 2021, which was the highest wage of all the major occupational groups. The employment of management occupations is projected to grow 9 percent from 2020 to 2030, which will result in about 906,800 new jobs. Employment growth is expected to be driven by the formation of new organizations and expansion of existing ones, which should require more workers to manage these operations.
