Center for Graduate & Professional Studies

Thanks to our corporate partners, we are able to connect our students to organizations that are in their community.

Types of Partnerships


In partnership with our corporate partners, Midland University is able to connect students to businesses and organizations across the Greater Omaha area. Students who are employed by one of our corporate partners qualify for unique scholarships and other funding options.

Capstone Consulting

As a capstone consulting partner, companies have access to our soon-to-be MBA graduates who will work with these organizations as consultants to solve real-life business problems. Not only does this benefit our partners, but it is also a great way for our students in the MBA program to get their foot in the door of a local business or organization.


Our educational partnerships connect school districts with various educational programs that can help their teachers and paraprofessionals in the classroom to reach a higher standard of teaching. Through partnership with our Walker School of Education, schools throughout Nebraska can bring a Master of Education degree, graduate endorsements, National Board Certification Preparation, and a Teacher Career Ladder program to their districts!

Community Colleges & Universities

To help support transfer students during their journey, Midland University is proud to have partnerships that align academic programs and certain degrees with other institutions across the Midwest.
