What Can I Do With This Major?
St. Bonaventure's MBA program is offered at the Olean campus and at the Buffalo Center in Hamburg.

Master of Business Administration

Only 5% of business schools worldwide are accredited by the Association for the Advancement of Collegiate Schools of Business.
 
St. Bonaventure's School of Business is proud to display the AACSB seal, signifying accreditation at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
 
This assures that you're getting a top-quality education, and it tells employers that you're ready to perform from day one.
 
What's more, we're in the business of preparing our students to be not only truly outstanding professionals, but truly outstanding people as well. You'll develop skills and insights to help you compete in the global economy while learning to make decisions rooted in moral and ethical values that define our Franciscan tradition.
 

Flexible programs, two campuses

St. Bonaventure's MBA program is designed to meet the needs of the busy consumer. We offer our program in three formats – part time, full time and weekends only – and at two locations: our main campus in Olean, N.Y., and at our Buffalo Center on the Hilbert College campus in Hamburg, N.Y.
 

  • PART-TIME FORMAT: Classes are generally held once a week in the late afternoon or evening at the main campus in Olean.
  • FULL-TIME FORMAT: Classes are generally held once a week in the late afternoon or evening at the main campus on a semester basis. Students with the appropriate academic background may be able to complete degree requirements in one year.
  • WEEKEND FORMAT: Classes are held on Friday evening from 6 to 9 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Buffalo Center. Students take one course at a time in five weekend modules.

Students typically enter the program at the beginning of the fall or spring semesters.

Students with appropriate academic background may be able to complete degree requirements in 15 months. Most students, however, are able to complete degree requirements in approximately two years.

Sport Studies major addresses classmates at St. Bonaventure's December Recognition Ceremony

Dec 17, 2013 | ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y., Oct. 17, 2013 — Chelsea Ann McBee, a sport studies major from Glenville, N.Y., addressed her classmates at St. Bonaventure University’s December Recognition Ceremony on Saturday, Dec. 14.

The annual event recognizes graduate and undergraduate students who complete their degree requirements in the fall semester of the academic year.

McBee told her classmates that the university’s “Becoming Extraordinary” marketing message aptly describes the St. Bonaventure experience.

“I believe in extraordinary,” said McBee. “I believe we are all put here on Earth to become extraordinary, with our own unique gifts and talents.” St. Bonaventure helps cultivate those gifts while encouraging their use for the “greater good,” she said, providing positive role models and a vast family of like-minded alumni.

Doing what’s right isn’t always easy, she cautioned. “Being servant-leaders will test us, but this is where the network of extraordinary will catch us, stand us up, and give us the encouragement we need to continue on being great leaders of character, and being extraordinary in our communities,” she said.

McBee will now pursue a master’s degree in mental health counseling at St. Bonaventure. She hopes to eventually join the Army as a mental health counselor, working with veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.

Also at the recognition ceremony, Dr. S. Alan Silliker, associate professor of counselor education, gave the faculty address.

Sr. Margaret Carney, O.S.F., S.T.D., welcomed the graduates and their families. Dr. Michael Fischer, provost and vice president for Academic Affairs, served as master of ceremonies.
