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.
