With a Master of Arts in Management from Saint Mary's University of Minnesota, you'll develop the knowledge, perspectives, and skills needed to serve as a leader who promotes effective performance in today's changing business environment.
Unlike a Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.), the M.A. in Management curriculum is intentionally designed to build analytical and interpersonal skills, providing broad exposure to the topics managers most encounter; finance, marketing, project management, communication, human resources, legal issues, and ethics.
As with all Saint Mary's programs, students who enroll in the M.A. in Management program will receive instruction from professors who are leaders in the field and will build a professional network that will support them in their educational journeys and beyond.
Offered at our Twin Cities and Rochester campuses, this program is designed with working, adult learners in mind, with classes available evenings and online.
This program helps professionals develop the knowledge, perspectives, and skills needed to manage organizations for effective performance in a changing environment, providing broad, managerial preparation for leadership positions in private, nonprofit, and public organizations.
