Student Life


The Haslam Full-Time MBA program staff provides consistent communication and support so that students can focus on their curricular and co-curricular experience.

Our staff anticipates students’ needs and are here to assist throughout the duration of the program. Staff services include:

  • A customer-first, one-stop source for personalized support throughout the program
  • A centralized program site (Canvas) with resources, an event calendar and class schedules
  • Assistance with academic advising, career coaching, student organization planning, events and academic/graduation paperwork and processes

The Full-Time MBA faculty members get to know each student on a first-name basis and often become lifelong connections which endure past graduation. Faculty members provide office hours and meeting times for extra support.

Living in Knoxville

Affordable housing, a low cost of living, and access to bountiful outdoor recreational opportunities (Great Smoky Mountains National Park is less than an hour away) make Knoxville a smart choice for MBA students. Places Rated Almanac recently ranked Metropolitan Knoxville the “best place to live in the United States and Canada” among cities with a population of fewer than one million, and named Knoxville as one of its “best mid-size cities for jobs.”
