We want to make earning your degree as easy as possible. That's why we offer two options for completing the MBA program—either face-to-face at our Nashville campus or completely online. With the accelerated online option, you’ll take two classes at a time and finish in less than 15 months. 

The accelerated option is ideal for those students with more time to commit to earning their master’s degree. It’s a fast-paced and highly intensive program. 

With the traditional option, you’ll take one class at a time—on campus or online—and finish in 22 months. It’s perfect for students who are already working full time.

 

Face-to-Face

Our campus in the heart of Nashville offers a warm and inviting atmosphere. Students enjoy small class sizes and personal relationships with faculty members who serve as both professors and mentors. If you enjoy in-person learning, you can join a campus cohort, which meets for class one night a week. Trevecca's cohort model is one of the reasons the school has become one of the fastest-growing universities in Middle Tennessee. It’s a highly successful experience that allows students to begin and complete their degree alongside a group of other classmates working toward similar goals.

Online

We understand life is busy and you may not have time to attend class on campus. That's why we offer our programs 100 percent online. Whether you are a working adult, a stay-at-home parent, or simply live outside of Nashville, we make it easy to earn your degree while focusing on one class at a time, anytime—24/7. And when we say the degree is entirely online, we mean it. The way our program is structured, you never have to step foot on campus. Books and materials are delivered to your front door.

With our online degree programs, you can expect the same level of quality and rigor that Trevecca has provided students since 1901. Our online students also benefit from a cohort model, where students begin and complete their degree alongside a group of other online classmates working toward similar goals.
