Tuesday, October 12, 2021 - by Shayna Ryan, Lee University

Lee’s Master of Business Administration program received recognition as one of the best MBA degrees in Tennessee, according to a University HQ ranking. Lee was ranked #18 out of over 100 college and university campuses in the state that offer MBA degrees.

“We are incredibly honored to be recognized among so many exceptional MBA programs,” said Holly Perleoni, interim director of graduate studies in business. “I am especially proud of our faculty who make a difference in the lives of students each day and our students and what they are accomplishing both academically and professionally. It’s nice to see hard work recognized through this honor.”

Lee’s 32-credit-hour MBA program utilizes experiential learning to equip students to apply values-based theory to actual business problems. The flexible, hybrid program allows students to take classes on campus or online and achieve the MBA in just 20 months.

The program is led by faculty who have served as executive vice presidents of major manufacturers, advisors to governments, managers for major hospitals, senior bank vice presidents, military commandants, college accreditation board chairmen, financial consultants, securities and actuarial analysts, accountants, tax attorneys, and more.

“Our experienced faculty are ready to equip students with the skills they need to thrive in a professional setting,” said Ms. Perleoni. “We strive to create a Christ-centered, quality educational experience focused on personal engagement with a global impact.”

Lee’s MBA program began in the fall of 2013. It has also been recognized for Best Online MBA Programs by U.S. News and World Report.

“We are always thrilled to learn of these listings, and we look forward to how our program will continue to grow in the future,” said Ms. Perleoni.
