The Peter J. Tobin College of Business
Queens Campus, Rome Campus


In a global marketplace undergoing economic instability and regulatory change, international business knowledge is becoming increasingly vital. This, in turn, is fueling the demand for global business professionals. 

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment for management analysts, including specialists in international business, will grow 24 % by 2018 — much faster than average. In addition, industry-watchers predict that business analysts who have earned international M.B.A.’s will command higher salaries and bonuses.

You can prepare for these opportunities through the Master of Business Administration Program’s International Business concentration at St. John’s University. Offered by The Peter J. Tobin College of Business the concentration prepares students for a cross-section of leadership positions in the global marketplace. As one of the first U.S.-based business schools to establish an overseas presence at St. John’s Rome campus, the Tobin College of Business is recognized for its international perspective.
