The Peter J. Tobin College of Business offers an entrepreneurial, experiential, and global education.
The St. John’s legacy is Catholic, Vincentian, metropolitan, and global. Graduates aren’t only employable when they leave campus, but they take with them all of the hope, compassion, awareness, and well-rounded dialogue that can only come from knowing what it means to be a global citizen.
The world is your classroom
St. John’s University provides students with a global education both inside and outside the classroom. More than 44% of St. John’s students study abroad at some point during their undergraduate career, and countless others see the world through St. John’s–sponsored service plunges. In addition to three New York City campuses—Queens, Staten Island, and Manhattan—St. John’s has a campus in Rome, Italy, as well as study locations in Paris, France, and Limerick, Ireland.
Students have the opportunity to spend a semester in Rome or Paris, or they can participate in the Discover the World program, which allows them to spend five weeks each in Rome, Paris, and Limerick over the course of one semester.
Compassion creates leaders
Leaders are not born—leaders are developed. And true leadership is not just about a grade point average or a Big East championship. A St. John’s–educated leader finds true career inspiration from wanting to make the world a better place for everyone. This is proven over and over again by the 187,000 alumni who help create a network of opportunities that has helped current students land internships in places like the White House, Major League Baseball, Merrill Lynch, Goldman Sachs, the New York Yankees, and so many others.
The greatest city in the world
The opportunities that exist in New York City are countless—and they allow St. John’s to offer more than 100 undergraduate programs of study that are taught by leaders within their fields who dedicate themselves to sharing their unique experiences with all students. As a matter of fact, personal attention is so important to St. John’s that the student-faculty ratio is an impressive 17:1.
Experiences outside the classroom are also essential to overall development—and what better place to be for those experiences than New York City! Students cheer on the men’s basketball team from Madison Square Garden, and the Campus Concierge provides students with discounted tickets to professional sporting events, Broadway shows, and countless other cultural events.
Fast Track M.B.A. Programs
The Tobin Fast Track M.B.A. provides an economic and competitive advantage to St. John's University undergraduate students by reducing the financial burden of the M.B.A. Since the Fast Track M.B.A. provides an opportunity for St. John's University undergraduates to take four graduate classes during their senior year, students only need to complete the remaining eight graduate classes (24 credits) in their fifth year at the Manhattan or Queens campus. Applications for the Fast Track M.B.A. should be completed by the end of a student’s third year of study and admission is based primarily on St. John's University undergraduate academic performance.
