St. Thomas Part-Time MBA graduates have an average 34% salary increase after graduation.

In-person program launch

Our program launches with a four day residency in Minneapolis. This unique feature of our Online MBA enables you to make face-to-face connections with your classmates and your faculty. Through experiential learning activities, we’ll build a foundation of community and collaboration. This time on campus will strengthen your online learning experience while jump starting your coursework.

An MBA in as little as two years

After the on campus residency, you can complete your MBA fully online. For many, this is the most convenient way to balance life, study and career. In your first year you’ll focus on core curriculum with your cohort, taking two courses at a time. This provides you with the foundation on which you’ll build your personal MBA journey.

More electives for a more personalized MBA

Elective study counts for a full 50% of your Online MBA. In year two, you’ll choose your electives from a menu of options. This flexibility allows you to customize your MBA and gain the most relevant skills for your career. You can even consider a short elective study abroad.

Gain certification as you learn

You can simultaneously add a graduate certificate to your degree using elective credits. Add an online Graduate Certificate in Business Analytics or opt for on-campus certificates like Digital Experience, Strategic Growth, or Global Business.
