Balancing Life, Study and Career

Today’s business world is constantly moving and evolving. The St. Thomas Online MBA provides a convenient way to balance life, study and career. What makes our Online MBA different from other MBA programs? We’re glad you asked!

Same top-ranked MBA program from anywhere

As with our on-campus programs, online students have access to the same faculty and curriculum. The Online MBA curriculum is identical to our Part-time MBA program. Using a variety of platforms, faculty provides you with an interactive online experience of group projects, case discussions, simulations, guest speakers and other practical exercises.

Community and connections

Students in the Online MBA start the program with a four-day residency on campus. They begin coursework, meet faculty and colleagues, and immerse themselves in experiential learning. The small cohort of MBA candidates advance together through the first-year MBA core experience.


MBA core requirements include unique courses in leadership and entrepreneurial thinking. The flexibility of the second half of the Online MBA allows students to tailor their education to their needs. An academic adviser helps map a framework of courses to balance personal and career goals and our Graduate Business Career Services provides personalized career coaching. 

All the St. Thomas advantages 

In addition to online electives, students have the option to take on-campus electives or an eight-to-12-day study abroad experience to fulfill their global requirement.

MBA candidates can also use their elective credits to simultaneously complete a graduate certificate, such as the new online program in business analytics. Students can still finish in as little as two years by taking two electives at a time.
