Flexible Study for Dedicated Professionals

Online MBA

Getting Ahead is Even Easier

Balance your life, education and career with the convenient yet comprehensive St. Thomas Online MBA program. Designed to meet the needs of working professionals, you’ll have access to all the same faculty and curricula of our traditional MBA program, but will complete your degree with greater flexibility online. In our experiential learning model, you’ll develop creative solutions-based skills through group projects, case studies, simulations, guest speakers, practical exercises and virtual sites. 

You’ll begin your studies with a three-day on-campus residency, where you’ll meet your faculty, St. Thomas staff, and your small cohort of MBA candidates. You and this group of peers will journey together through the MBA core classes, which comprise half of the curriculum.

Electives form the remainder of your program, allowing you to tailor your MBA to your professional interests and goals. To finish your degree in just two years, take all of your electives in the second year. Or extend your graduation timeline to graduate in up to seven years. You also have the option of specializing your degree with one of several graduate certificates.

Join a vibrant community of learners, working together to become impactful business leaders. Enjoy networking opportunities through our robust network of alumni, who can be found in every Fortune 500 company, in Minnesota and beyond. Complete your Online MBA, and prepare to tackle tough business challenges and develop outstanding solutions.
