Average ROI for a University of Tennessee Aerospace & Defense MBA:

One Year

Unlike many MBA programs, The University of Tennessee Aerospace & Defense MBA is designed to be completed in a single year. Our proprietary High Compression LearningSM method delivers a concentrated, information-packed curriculum that gives you all the tools you need in the shortest possible amount of time.

You'll take part in five, one-week-long residence periods during the year on the University of Tennessee campus, plus complete a distance-learning curriculum. Course preparation and homework assignments require roughly 20 hours a week for the average student.

If you're ready for an intense experience, you're in the right place. Our program is challenging and highly focused, yes, but you'll be amazed at the results. And the connections you'll make with classmates, faculty, and advisors will pay dividends both personally and professionally for years to come.

Strategic Access

Our ADMBA connects you to the business of aerospace and defense like no other MBA program available.

The University of Tennessee is located just 30 miles from the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, a world-renowned hub for science and energy, which it manages in close partnership with defense contractor Battelle. Our ADMBA program has enjoyed sponsorship arrangements with the biggest names in aerospace and defense contracting, such as Lockheed Martin, Boeing, and has participants from small business and the US Army, Navy, and Air Force. And the University of Tennessee Space Institute in Tullahoma is part of our university family—affiliated with the U.S. Air Force, it houses internationally recognized research and graduate programs in engineering, physics, mathematics, and aviation systems.

Look no further—we have all the resources you need right here.

Exceptional Value

The Aerospace & Defense MBA program at the University of Tennessee costs a competitive $69,000 and takes only 12 months of your time. Plus, you'll get the same MBA degree that a full-time MBA student receives—your coursework is taught in the context of aerospace and defense, but you'll also learn applied business principles that translate to any industry.

In lieu of a thesis, you'll complete an applied year-long Organizational Action Project (OAP) as part of your coursework that addresses a strategic requirement in your own organization. Your project will deliver a return of at least $1 million—so that your MBA will be one of the smartest investments you and your organization ever make.

The math is simple. The time is right. Go ahead and get proven results faster.
