The School of Management and Business provides both traditional daytime undergraduate and day and evening graduate programs for students interested in pursuing a business career. Our goal is to help our students to become confident, ethical lifelong learners and business professionals prepared to lead as responsible global citizens. All of our programs focus on active learning and include opportunities for collaboration with local business, government, and non-profit organizations.

MBA in Digital Media Management

Our daytime traditional undergraduate program offers a wide variety of majors and minors that build upon the students’ learning from the University’s general education components.

Our graduate programs offer working adults the opportunity to pursue learning that can help them to either advance in their current profession or prepare to pursue new endeavors. We offer six unique Master’s programs that address the interests and professional development needs of a wide variety of working adults. Each of our carefully selected faculty possesses extensive real-world business experience. Small classes promote student/faculty interaction and a significant number of classes are offered in both traditional classroom as well as online and blended formats.

Note that St. Edward’s University’s New College program offers working adults the opportunity to pursue undergraduate business education with evening and weekend classes.
