Why an MBA at Saint Joseph's College?

Ethics, Justice, and Social Responsibility

With a focus on ethics, justice, and social responsibility, the SJC MBA Program takes a Christian Humanist approach to its curriculum. Because this approach is rooted in our nationally acclaimed academic program called "Core Curriculum," this is the only MBA program of its kind in the nation. SJC offers a vision of leadership in business that is rooted in ethical decision-making and commitment to service.

Tailored to the StudenT

Our MBA Program is open to all students, regardless of their undergraduate major. Rather than the traditional 16-week semester format of SJC undergraduate programs, SJC’s MBA Program is divided into 8-week modules. As a result, students are able to focus on one or two classes at a time, a program structure that has proven to be effective. MBA students can register as part-time or full-time students. Full-time students can complete the program in one year.

Program Structure:

  • 8-week modules
  • 2 courses offered in each 8-week module
  • Full time: Take 2 courses each 8 weeks
  • Part time: Take 1 course each 8 weeks

  • Start Your Major Freshman Year

    Like Elementary Education major Brittany Cooper ’12, you start your major as soon as you walk in the door, so you will have four years of knowledge and experience in your field.You can even change your mind about your major and still graduate on time with lots of experience.

    Core and the major work in harmony to develop the cognitive skills requisite for success in a competitive, global society. Students better understand the forces that shape the future by exploring the past. They discuss contemporary events; analyze the impact of science on our understanding of humanity and the universe; and investigate diverse cultures and world civilizations. 

  • Mentorship

    Small colleges offer you personal attention; SJC professors, such as Communication Professors Fred and Sally Berger, do more for you—they serve as mentors. Studies show that having a mentor leads to success in your field. Alumni often tell us how their professors not only played a major role in their success, but also became lifelong friends.  If you are undecided about what to major in, we help you decide.

  • High Quality Academics

    In the Core Program, you will be inspired to debate, analyze, and solve problems. Discussion of culture and society, the modern world, and Christian Humanism are just a few highlights of the Program. New perspectives will be gained, your worldview will expand, and you will graduate from SJC as a well rounded, highly marketable person.

  • Leadership

    You get more deeply involved at SJC, so you get more meaningful experiences that prepare you for career and life. LaMichelle Sanders ’14, for example, has spent two summers helping Chinese study abroad students adapt to life in the U.S. and at SJC. If you want to start a club or activity that doesn’t exist, we encourage you to start one. At SJC, prepare yourself for what you want to do in life.

  • Real-life Skills

    Because of the skills you develop by having the Core Program interact with your major for four years in addition to internships, job shadowing, and service learning, you get hands-on experience in preparation for your career or graduate school. Students Hanna Kane ’14, Emily Baird ’15, and Alyssa Guarnaccia ’14 collect food in the SJC hoophouse to be distributed on campus. You will also get four years of analytical, writing, and speaking skills that will serve you well for the rest of your life.
