Online MBA Academic Experience

Earn a Degree on Your Timeline

As an Online MBA student, you’ll work toward a highly personalized degree on your timeline. Earn your MBA in as little as two years with our accelerated track, or take more time as needed.

Connect with an energizing community that’s learning together through relevant, practical coursework and real-world opportunities. Join a small cohort of MBA students as you go through core curriculum, and then tailor your MBA with electives that match your interests.

You’ll receive support from all sides—from your instructors, academic advisors, career coaches, and your growing business network. The support doesn't end after graduation, either. The connections you make at St. Thomas can last a lifetime.

Build Real-World Skills

Our instructors don’t just prepare you for the final exam—they equip you with the practical knowledge and skills you need to succeed outside the classroom. Our applied learning model uses group projects, case studies, simulations, guest speakers, internships and more to prepare you for your next work assignment or career opportunity.

The Cohort Model

To start your Online MBA studies, you’ll attend a three-day on-campus residency to meet other members of your cohort and start learning together. Over the next year, you’ll work through the core curriculum as a group, leveraging the power of community. Classes are small, to ensure that everyone receives plenty of individual attention.

  • Get to know your cohort--the peers that will complete core courses together
  • Attend social events including happy hour, bowling, and a tour of the St. Paul campus
  • Start working with career services and growing your professional network
