A message from the MBA Director

Our program is committed to providing the highest quality of education enriched by our Holy Cross mission to prepare ethical business leaders. Getting an MBA, especially one with a tech focus, will prepare you for the post-coronavirus job market. A lot of organizations heavily recruit MBA graduates with robust knowledge in Technology.

The MBA program at St. Edward’s University is unique because it provides students a practice-based graduate education with a focus on the hard and soft skills in a vibrant curriculum to maximize personal and professional growth opportunities. For example, the culminating course of our MBA program is known as the Capstone Consulting Experience. Student teams spend 7 weeks researching and developing solutions to a real problem for a local, national or international organization. 

Our classes are filled with students from across the globe providing unique experiences that enrich the learning environment. You will be able to build a sustainable network of professional peers that many of our alumni attest to be personally and professionally rewarding. Our world-class faculty, who have valuable experiences in the corporate world, public sector, and academia, will prepare you for the challenges of the 21st century and beyond.

The St. Edward’s MBA is truly a powerful, transformational experience. I invite you to act now and join our outstanding program.
