Offering weekend MBA and project management MBA

Chicago (June 6, 2007) -- Beginning fall 2007, Saint Xavier University’s Graham School of Management will offer its Saturday MBA and project management MBA programs at the Orland Park campus. 

The Saturday MBA is designed for students who want to pursue their MBA but are limited by travel requirements, commutes and other evening commitments. Students may take five classes each year, allowing completion of their MBA in less than three years.

“By making the commitment to pursue your MBA on Saturdays, you will not only enjoy the convenience this schedule brings to your busy life, you will also be rewarded with a discounted tuition rate,” said Jane Smith, executive director of graduate programs in Saint Xavier University’s Graham School of Management.
