Accelerate your career with an MBA

In the Master of Business Administration (MBA) program at St. Edward’s University, you will build practical skills that prepare you for career advancement, and you will develop dynamic connections – in Austin and beyond.

Our Program Structure

Adapt the MBA program to meet your career and personal life. Our courses are offered in a flexible, low-residency structure. Students come to campus for in-person classes on three Saturdays each session (there are two sessions each semester) and receive virtual support from professors during the week.

Our Classroom Experience

Learn from well-connected faculty members in small classes that provide opportunities for in-depth discussion and relationship building. During Saturday classes, students often gather to share meals, attend professional development sessions, and network with their peers.

Our Partnership with Austin

Take advantage of connections The Bill Munday School of Business has with Austin organizations, including Capital Factory, Impact Hub Austin and more, to build your network and gain internships or full-time employment. During the culminating Capstone experience, you will work with local – and even global – organizations on a consulting project that addresses their strategic business needs.

Our Focus

The MBA program focuses on entrepreneurial thinking, social enterprise, innovation, global collaboration and business analytics – key competencies that industry leaders tell us they need. As a student, you will learn to:

  • Manage and lead through effective communication and collaboration.
  • Use quantitative data to develop business opportunities in a dynamic world.
  • Analyze the local and global environment to formulate business solutions.
  • Apply critical reasoning to integrate business goals with corporate social responsibility.
  • Leverage technology in all areas of business to improve outcomes.
