There is a strong tradition of connection between the Indian-American population in Mississippi and Millsaps College. The Indian Association of Mississippi donated a statue of Mahatma Gandhi to the college. It is prominently displayed on campus, honoring the man who influenced the lives of millions in both India and the US. Located in the dynamic city of Jackson, Millsaps College offers a wide range of opportunities for its students to be involved in professional research, community engagement, and internships in medicine, law, business, education, and the arts. Millsaps is recognized across the US for its strengths in the liberal arts and business.
There is a strong sense of research on this campus. Millsaps professors are active members of their disciplines, making important contributions through continuous academic research. Students are invited to collaborate on projects, and because the faculty to student ratio is kept small, students have ample opportunities. Grant funding is available to support student involvement. Off-campus, students benefit from the college's excellent reputation in Jackson, and are offered research positions in the hospitals, government offices, archives, museums, libraries and community organizations.
The International Perspectives Program (IPP) at Millsaps provides unique academic and living/learning opportunities designed to internationalize the Millsaps campus. Students selected as IPP Davis Fellows work closely with faculty mentors to examine in-depth a global topic through an interdisciplinary seminar in the fall semester. The goal of the program is to integrate the global experiences of a growing number of students into the classrooms and campus life.
Through its Else School of Management, Millsaps offers a "fifth year" M.B.A. or Masters of Accountancy to its business undergraduates, and also supports its arts and sciences undergraduates to obtain masters degrees in business. “Employers constantly ask for students who can think broadly, solve problems, and communicate well, giving Millsaps grads a distinct advantage over graduates of more traditional business programs.” Kim Burke, Dean of Else School of Management. ELSEWorksprovides students unparalleled opportunities working with faculty, alumni, and industry experts to gain high-level entrepreneurial business experience in diverse settings and to engage the community.
International Student Advisor (ISA) at Millsaps is a dedicated professional that provides specialized student support for international students. The ISA also serves as the advisor for the Millsaps International Buddy System (MIBS) and Intercultural Student Organization. Millsaps students have access to wide range of internship and job opportunities at University of Mississippi Medical Center, MerillLynch, Ernst & Young, Mississippi Development Authority, Crossroads Film Festival, Mississippi Museum of Art, and more. 95% of Millsaps graduates are employed or enrolled in graduate/professional school 6 months post-graduation. Recent graduates have attended prestigious graduate programs at Yale, Harvard, Stanford, Johns Hopkins University, Duke, and University of North Carolina.
