Scheduling, Location, and Cohort Learning



Scheduling, Location, and Cohort Learning

With St. Catherine University’s longstanding experience educating busy adults, and research in hand about how to deliver 21st-century learning outcomes for business professionals, we aim to deliver a new MBA in a way that is focused, convenient and team-oriented.

Our innovative MBA combines face-to-face class scheduling at convenient Minneapolis and St. Paul locations with online learning — helping you to graduate in just 24 months.

  • Focused: One accelerated course at a time
    You’ll study year-round in fall, January, spring and summer terms. Throughout, you’ll take one focused course at a time, allowing you to become proficient in a single topic before moving on to the next.
  • Convenient: Evening and weekend class meetings — and online learning
    Each course includes a blend of face-to-face meetings and online learning. Class meetings take place once a week, on either a weekday evening or Saturday morning. Online learning can be completed when and where you choose, anytime between face-to-face meetings.
  • Team-oriented: The power of “cohort” learning
    It’s all about synergy — and support. You’ll enter and proceed through the MBA program with the same group of students. In this “cohort” learning format, you’ll join a group of emerging business professionals expanding your business network and building a lifelong group of thought partners.

Minneapolis and St. Paul locations

Face-to-face meetings will take place on St. Catherine University’s historic St. Paul campus and at our new design learning facility in International Market Square, near downtown Minneapolis. For each cohort, classes will meet primarily in one location. Parking is readily available at both locations, meaning you can move quickly from work to school to home (and everyplace in between).

When can you start?

St. Kate’s MBA cohorts begin twice per year, each Fall (September) and Spring (February) semester.
