Strategic Partnerships

The Office of Strategic Partnerships supports the educational advancement of employees through corporate and community partners and lasting relationships with individual personnel.

What can Strategic Partnerships do for you?

College-educated employees are sought after by corporations for their advanced skill set and often qualify for higher pay compared to those without degrees. By upskilling employees in specific coursework, companies create a more profitable staff and reduce turnover, lowering the cost of hiring new personnel. Let Strategic Partnerships help you recruit, inspire, motivate, and achieve greatness on one of our many campuses: Macon, Cochran, Dublin, Eastman, Warner Robins or online anywhere via MGA Direct.

MGA Direct

Offering the flexibility of rolling admissions and fully online certificate, associate, baccalaureate, and master level programs composed of 8-week courses, MGA Direct allows students to earn degrees at their pace and on their schedule. Because we are one of the most affordable public state universities in Georgia, our students enjoy the same low flat-rate tuition regardless of their state of residency. Undergraduate online tuition is only $130 per credit hour, allowing students to take one course towards associate or baccalaureate degrees for as little as $390 plus fees. MGA’s graduate online tuition rate makes earning a master’s degree feasible at only $255 per credit hour plus fees.

Apply Life experience Towards your Degree

Students may leverage prior learning gained through life or work outside of higher educational courses towards degree programs via Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) credits, reducing the repetition of relevant course-related material and the time and money required to earn an undergraduate or graduate degree. The degrees offered through MGA Direct were created in consultation with regional business leaders, making our programs a win-win for employees and employers alike seeking an attainable higher education experience.
