General management skills to meet the needs of today's businesses

Solid business acumen and practice-ready management skills. Creative and innovate thinking, and the confidence to carry it forward. A focus on global justice and responsibility — not as an afterthought, but as a way of doing business every day. Delivering on the bottom line for sustainable, long-term growth for people, planet and profits.

These are just some of the skills you’ll add to your portfolio as a student in the St. Kate’s MBA with a management concentration.

It’s a combination of skills today’s business leaders are asking for in their managers. And it’s a combination uniquely suited to the strengths of St. Catherine University students and graduates who, for over a century, have combined professional excellence with the global thinking needed to create a better world for their businesses, clients and communities.
