Kalissia from Jackson, MS
The Millsaps EMBA Program is the best opportunity I have found for an advanced degree while maintaining a full-time job. The Faculty is unparalleled and has been more than helpful during the admissions process. The curriculum so far is fantastic: challenging, but not overwhelming.
