The MBA program at Mississippi State's College of Business and Industry takes a broad approach to graduate business education, stressing general principles and de-emphasizing details. The idea is to expose students to a broad range of business theories and practices, a methodology students appreciate; as one put it, "The greatest strengths that I have encountered here lie in the fact that the MBA program allows students to experience and learn all aspects of business that will affect them in the future." Another student agrees, "The well-rounded design of the program is very strong. Courses are offered in every aspect of managing a business." Only a few students complain that "more in-depth material could be covered instead of the basics."

MSU's MBA program is small, resulting in "an excellent learning atmosphere in each class [and] lots of personal attention." One MBA notes, "Every professor I have had knows who I am, where I'm from, and what I want to do with my life. It's comforting to know that someone cares whether or not I am in class." Another student adds, "All of the professors are willing to help each student in class and outside of class. Many will take away from their own time and go out of their way to help a student. I know that I have become more competent and more prepared for the business world because of my experience here at Mississippi State."

MSU's program is flexible enough to accommodate both full-timers and part-time students with full-time jobs. In fact, Mississippi State's internet based distance learning program allows students to complete the entire MBA and MBA-Project Management degrees from anywhere. The school offers a wide range of business degrees, including the MBA, an MS in business administration, a master's in professional accountancy, a master's in taxation, an MS in information systems, and several PhDs. The most popular fields of specialization include finance, general management, and operations.
