Tobin College of Business at St. John’s University has 2,500 undergraduate students majoring in accounting, actuarial science, business, business analytics, economics, finance, international management, management, marketing, or risk management and insurance, and 600 graduate students in one of eleven Master of Science (M.S.), three Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.), or six advanced certificate programs, all supported by more than 150 faculty and staff on the Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island campuses.

Tobin’s Master of Business Administration and Master of Science programs provide unique opportunities to obtain an experiential education in areas essential for understanding risk and uncertainty in our global economy.

That global perspective is critical for career success. To support this vision, Tobin offers all M.B.A. and M.S. students the opportunity to participate in one of the many Global Destination Courses, which offer students the chance to study internationally.

Online learning opportunities are available for our advanced certificate, M.S., and M.B.A. students. Online opportunities are also available to study in the Fast-Track M.B.A. and M.S. programs.

Within Tobin is the Center for Excellence in Enterprise Risk Management, Center for Executive Education, Applied Finance Institute, and Center for Global Business Stewardship. The College’s acclaimed Maurice R. Greenberg School of Risk Management, Insurance, and Actuarial Science is one of only 20 colleges and universities to be recognized as a Global Center of Insurance Excellence.

Tobin is one of only six schools in New York state that is accredited by AACSB International for general business and accounting.
