Master of Business Administration

The MBA prepares candidates to manage people, assets, ideas, and technology in a rapidly changing global environment. Courses develop critical-thinking and decision-making skills with a particular focus on operational, strategic, and financial risk.


Candidates must complete 48 credits with a minimum GPA of 3.0. Students elect a concentration upon entrance to facilitate courses in the program path. Saint Peter’s may consider waiving up to twelve (12) credits within the MBA Core Courses for undergraduate courses where the candidate achieved a grade of B or higher in each course. Waived credits are by permission only, and not an obligation of the University.

Level II:  Concentration (9-12 credits)

Concentrations focus the candidate on a specific area to achieve depth of knowledge. Concentrations are available in Cyber Security, Finance, Health Care Administration, Human Resources Management, International Business, Management, Marketing, and Risk Management. Candidates may follow the recommended courses below or may work with the Program Director to design a concentration to meet specific goals and reflect individual backgrounds. 

An additional concentration may be added prior to the degree being awarded and requires an additional 6 credits over the standard degree credits. The additional concentration also can be pursued after the degree is granted, however, as this represents only six credits, federal financial aid is not applicable.

Level II:  Electives (9-12 credits)

These courses provide program breadth outside the area of concentration. Candidates should choose these courses to gain knowledge in areas that will help achieve their career goals. 

Level III:  Capstone (3 credits)

The capstone course, GB-699 Corporate Strategy: Initiation-Implementation, reinforces the learning outcomes in the program, and is taken near the end of the program.

Additional Concentrations

Candidates may choose to add additional concentrations to their program of study. Each additional concentration requires 6 additional credits (12 credits for Health Care Administration). The concentration is noted on the transcript.

Saint Peter's alumni who have earned an MBA or MSA from Saint Peter's University may re-enroll for additional concentrations.

Note: A concentration taken after a degree has been awarded is not eligible for federal financial aid under Title IV of the Higher Education Act. You will be expected to settle your account using cash, employer tuition reimbursement, private loans or other such funds.
