There are four excellent distance learning programs offered at St. Joseph’s. They are Executive M.B.A., Organizational Management, Certificate in Leadership and Supervision, and Certificate in Human Resources. These four distance learning courses are ideal for professionals seeking to further their education or are looking to change careers. The flexibility of taking distance learning courses is exceptional, but a certain amount of dedication and self control is required.
The distance learning E.M.B.A. program offers students the same quality coursework that they would receive in an on-campus setting.

There can be exceptions to these distance learning requirements with the dean’s approval.
