Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota will broaden its fully online program options with the addition of an accelerated online MBA in January 2016. This is an affordable program that can be finished in 18 months or less and goes beyond the typical MBA. Students are able to customize their curriculum by choosing from vital business emphases based on what they’re interested in pursuing.

“We are excited to launch this online accelerated MBA program that gives students the opportunity to study what interests them while propelling their business careers,” says Holly Tapper, MBA Program Director. “There really isn’t another program out there quite like it.”

The degree offers three areas of emphasis for students to choose from including social media management and marketing, data analytics, and sustainability and environmental management—each one reflecting the most relevant aspects of business today. There is also the option of a more general MBA. This program will immerse students in all that it takes to get ahead in business, imparting effective communication skills, ethics, applied economics, in-depth decision making and leadership. Additionally, 25 special topic lectures are offered covering project management, international development, information technology, finance, healthcare, accounting, and more.

Another unique aspect of the online Accelerated MBA is its experiential Capstone project, which connects students with corporations, either domestically or internationally, in a hands-on applicable project and an incredible networking opportunity.
