The Tobin M.B.A is a 36-credit program that uses case studies, real-world projects and an experiential capstone course to transcend the normal classroom experience, while giving students a global perspective and connecting them with alumni and corporate executives. This program enables students to continue their full-time career while taking courses in the evening. During the program, students may enroll in one of the following concentrations:
Tobin Analytics M.B.A.
The Tobin Analytics M.B.A. is offered primarily for undergraduate science or mathematics majors and provides the same academic preparation as our traditional M.B.A. (36 credits), with a concentration in Analytics. To complete the concentration, students select three analytical courses from a set of designated electives in business disciplines in Tobin. The Analytics M.B.A. enables St. John’s students to develop the quantitative and managerial skills for exploring and analyzing large or complex data sets to support intelligence-driven business decisions. This program provides a practical approach to deploying analytic skills and capabilities in disciplines, such as finance and insurance analytics. Students may accelerate the Analytics M.B.A. by applying to the Fast Track Analytics M.B.A. during the third year of their St. John's University undergraduate program after consulting with their major advisor.
Tobin Global M.B.A.
The Tobin Global M.B.A. is for students with a strong interest in international business management or international marketing. The Global M.B.A. uses an approach that fosters teamwork to examine, investigate and solve today’s global economic challenges. Students have the opportunity to study for up to two semesters in Rome and complete their remaining credits on one of our New York campuses.While in Rome, students visit local for profit and not-for-profit organizations, and gain experience from executives at global enterprises in the program’s capstone strategy course. Students with liberal arts majors, including, but not limited to, history, sociology, romance languages, and anthropology may accelerate this program by applying to the Fast Track Global M.B.A. during the third year of their St. John's University undergraduate program after consulting with their major advisor.
Tobin Accounting M.B.A.
The 57-credit M.B.A. in Accounting program is designed to fulfill the business and accounting education requirements to sit for the Uniform CPA Examination. In addition to the licensure-qualifying CPA accounting concentration, the M.B.A. enables students to select from a wide range of concentrations, such as, internal auditing and risk advisory services; information systems’ audit and control; enterprise risk management; forensic accounting and fraud examination; controllership; international financial reporting and auditing; financial services industry reporting and analysis; and accounting research.
Tobin Fast Track M.B.A.
The Tobin Fast Track M.B.A. provides an economic and competitive advantage to St. John's University undergraduate students by reducing the financial burden of the M.B.A. Since the Fast Track M.B.A. provides an opportunity for St. John's University undergraduates to take four graduate classes during their senior year, students only need to complete the remaining eight graduate classes (24 credits) in their fifth year at the Manhattan, Queens, or Rome campus. Applications for the Fast Track M.B.A. should be completed by the end of a student’s third year of study and admission is based primarily on St. John's University undergraduate academic performance.
