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.

  • Leverage technology in all areas of business to improve outcomes.

Outcomes

MBA graduates go on to apply their knowledge and skills in key roles in Austin and beyond. Earning your MBA in Austin provides many advantages. It’s one of the fastest growing cities in the country and is home to promising startups and iconic corporations such as Apple, Google, Facebook, Intel, Qualcomm, and IBM and recruiting new talent. Austin is known for its vibrant and eclectic culture which nurtures a strong creative industry. This provides unparalleled opportunities, such as the SXSW conference, which attracts some of the most innovative companies and iconic creative leaders on a global scale.

An MBA degree can open up new doors for graduates, and it’s a requirement for advancing in some careers. This is generally true in fields such as investment banking and management consulting. 

For Daniel Hawthorne ’08, MBA ’12, an MBA helped him better navigate the corporate world. He’s now a Senior Data Protection Specialist at Dell, after being promoted quicker than anyone else in his division’s history. He also holds the record in many sales categories. Daniel is able to incorporate his dedication to service by serving on the board of GenNext, a Dell young professionals group focusing on social responsibility and business readiness.

Outside the Classroom

As part of the coursework, MBA students connect with the Austin business community to work with organizations on consulting projects that address strategic business needs. They also learn from business leaders we bring to campus. Our partnerships with organizations such as Capital Factory open opportunities for networking and internships.

The engaging learning environment at St. Edward’s University provides opportunities for interaction with:
  • Professors who have years of practical experience in their fields
  • Peers who can share professional insights
  • Visiting speakers from diverse business sectors

Meeting the Needs of Austin’s Business Community
