The Chaifetz One-Year MBA Difference

The One-Year MBA at SLU's Richard A. Chaifetz School of Business is a cohort-based program that begins each summer and spans three terms — summer, fall and spring.


Integrated Curriculum

Today's business environment is complex, and problems don't occur in isolation. That's why in the Chaifetz School One-Year MBA program, you'll learn concepts and solutions through our unique integrated curriculum. Coursework brings together a team of faculty from across disciplines to teach you how accounting impacts finance, how economics impacts marketing and how to develop data systems across business functions to fuel success.

Data Analytics Focus

Through the Chaifetz School’s One-Year MBA program, you’ll gain practical skills to meet industry demand for managers capable of using data to achieve business results. As a graduate, you’ll be able to perform advanced data analysis with tools like Excel, R and Python, create data dashboards with programs like Tableau and answer critical business questions with the right data points to take strategic action.

Consulting Experience

At the Chaifetz School, you’ll do more than learn about business. Through three fast-paced semesters, you’ll develop an understanding of theory, apply concepts in hands-on simulations and put what you learn to use as you gain valuable consulting experience with St. Louis companies and nonprofits.

International Business Immersion

Effective leadership in today’s global economy requires perspective. On a seven-day international immersion trip, you’ll gain insight into one of the world’s leading markets as you conduct a global brand audit, learn from local companies and network with business executives, all included in the cost of program tuition.

Personalized Career Support

With in-demand skills and tangible experience, a Chaifetz School MBA will position you to accelerate your career. Leverage the program’s dedicated MBA career advisor and 80+ hours of professional development, networking opportunities and personalized career planning to make your post-MBA goals a reality.

STEM-Certified Degree

Our program is STEM-certified, qualifying F-1 visa holders for an OPT extension. International students curious about their visa eligibility can learn more from the Department of Homeland Security.
