MBA at Chicago Police Department

Saint Xavier University accepts applications throughout the year for MBA and certificate program classes that will be offered at the Chicago Police Department Education and Training Division. Terms begin each year in August, October, January, March and June.

The CPD program is run out of the Chicago Police Training Academy where all core courses are available over a two-year cycle. CPD members are also able to take classes online or at the Chicago campus if that would be more convenient.

A Partnership in Education

Saint Xavier University offers a Master of Business Administration program, two undergraduate degree completion programs and a certificate option at the Chicago Police Department Education and Training Division.

Saint Xavier University offers an entire MBA program at the Chicago Police Department Education and Training Division specifically for employees of the Chicago Police Department. An MBA is a highly marketable degree for both public and private industry. Classes are offered in eight-week terms in the late afternoons, 4:30 to 7:30 p.m., and also online. The MBA program can be completed in less than two years, if two classes are taken per term; or completed in less than three years, if one class is taken per term. Generally, class offerings are on Wednesdays. Online options are also available.

For our students who are taking classes through the Chicago Police Department program, we offer some special benefits:

The GSM/CPD program was mentioned in the Chicago Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) Lodge 7 Magazine (PDF).

"My experience as a Saint Xavier student was valuable. I didn't realize getting my MBA would lead me to a transformational change within myself and my career. The skills that I gained: leadership, initiative, strategic thinking and adaptability to change assisted me within my nonprofit work. We have contributed to the greater good by transforming and changing lives in the community that we serve. Thank you, Saint Xavier, for giving me the foundation."
