St. Scholastica's MBA program builds on the history and success of our Master of Arts in Management program, but focuses on the hard business skills necessary to operate a business.
Students learn the same technical skills taught in many MBA programs, but we also focus on the cultural competence that's required for success in an international business environment and the ethical understanding that's required to make effective long-term decisions.
To provide our students with the best international education possible, we offer our capstone abroad program in Russia and China. We've chosen to focus on the emerging BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India, China) economies as they have been the global growth leaders in recent years.
The MBA program is offered in an accelerated format at the following locations.
By taking an additional 17 credits, students can complete our Master of Arts in Management program as well and graduate with both an MBA and an MAM. The two degrees provide an excellent complement to each other, with the MAM focusing on the soft skills required to manage people and the MBA focusing on the hard skills necessary to run a business.
"The St. Scholastica MBA program is the right fit for the professional pursuing an advanced degree. Between online courses and classroom, professors drive intellectual thought and discussion which weigh in on real-life experiences.
The mix of students in these classes results in a broad perspective that can be applied both globally and distinct to ones' profession. Appreciation and commitment to research and data as well as presentation prepare the MBA applicant to stand apart from their peers.
Dedication and hard work are the gold standard for MBA programs. I found the experience manageable from both a personal and professional perspective."
