M.A. in Management

With a Master of Arts in Management from Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota, you’ll develop the knowledge, perspectives, and skills needed to serve as a leader who promotes effective performance in today’s changing business environment.

Unlike a Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.), the M.A. in Management curriculum is intentionally designed to build analytical and interpersonal skills, providing broad exposure to the topics managers most encounter—finance, marketing, project management, communication, human resources, legal issues, and ethics.

As with all Saint Mary’s programs, students who enroll in the M.A. in Management program will receive instruction from professors who are leaders in the field and will build a professional network that will support them in their educational journeys and beyond.

From Start to Finish

The M.A. in Management program consists of 11 3-credit courses and a 3-credit capstone.

  2. An official transcript issued to Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota from the institution posting the applicant’s completed bachelor degree and other relevant transcripts documenting program prerequisites and potential transfer credits. (An official transcript is one that is sent to the university by the credit-granting institution. Transcripts from countries other than the U.S. must be evaluated by a university accepted evaluation source, such as World Education Services, Educational Credential Evaluators, Educational Perspectives, or One Earth International Credential Evaluators and be deemed equivalent to accredited U.S. university standards).

    • brief description of the applicant’s background, training, and experience; and
    • statement indicating the career goals of the applicant and his or her reasons for seeking admission to the program; and
    • description of the areas the applicant considers to be his or her strengths and areas in which the applicant wishes to develop greater strengths and abilities; and
    • personal information the applicant wishes to share.
  4. Two letters of recommendation that verify professional and/or volunteer experience and academic ability; and
  5. A current résumé listing educational background and work experience.
  6. Applicants with international transcripts may require an English language proficiency exam (TOEFL, IELTS, PTE or MELAB accepted.)

Please Note: Application materials should be sent to the attention of the Office of Admission on the Twin Cities campus.
