Why Saint Martin's University?

Acknowledging the technologic innovation, ever-changing global marketplace, and challenged ecosystems currently shaping the world, the Business Administration Program offers students an opportunity to learn and practice general management skills, discover the need for ethical problem-solving and acquire functional business area expertise.

Through practice and active learning, students also gain the ability to work cooperatively and productively in diverse teams. They become effective writers and speakers, and they demonstrate sharpened professional judgment. Students graduate with a broad perspective on the business world and its place in our culture. Saint Martin’s graduates have the ability to work across business functions, adjust quickly to new situations, accept change and ambiguity as a natural part of life, and become enthusiastic lifelong learners.
