Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota recognizes the special sacrifices made by members of the military with policies and resources designed to welcome and encourage them. For these efforts, G.I. Jobs has included the University on its 2013 list of Military Friendly Schools.
To create the list, G.I. Jobs identified higher education institutions with robust policies in place that attract and support active members and veterans of the U.S. armed services. Those policies and resources included dedicated staff, generous transfer credit policies and more. Using survey data, these criteria were weighted according to their importance to military students. Only the top 15 percent of schools—representing the top tier of colleges, universities and trade schools in the United States--made it on to the list.
In addition to the benefits military students receive at Saint Mary’s—including waived application fees, dedicated support staff and a leave-friendly policy—the University offers online graduate degree programs with a wide variety in applications in many fields. Whether students want to transition to a civilian career or advance in the military, the online programs at Saint Mary’s can help them achieve their goals.
“This honor is wonderful for Saint Mary’s, but even better for our students and future students in the military,” said Marcel J. Dumestre, Ed.D, Vice President, Schools of Graduate & Professional Programs. “Besides the support and resources we offer to members of the armed services, our uniquiely mobile online programs make a Saint Mary’s education accessible to troops both at home and abroad.”
The online Master of Science in Project Management reflects a growing need for professionals who can manage complex projects from concept through completion in all types of industries. The curriculum incorporates the principles and best practices of project knowledge as well as leadership concepts and skills. Coursework closely mirrors the Project Management Institute’s Project Management Body of Knowledge Guide, the gold standard of principles and best practices in the field.
Students in the online Master of Arts in Human Resource Management are prepared to take on critical strategic roles in the management of human capital. Coursework focuses on analyzing and improving the performance of employees and teams to their full potential.
The Master of Arts in Organizational Leadership trains students to become adaptive and inspiring leaders who recognize and seize opportunities. The curriculum is delivered in five semesters of themed classes grouped to simulate the integrated and complex nature of today’s workplace.
Enriched by the Catholic, Lasallian heritage of Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota, students become empowered learners who work toward the common good of society through service and leadership—values that complement the goals of our military services.
