Managment and Leadership – Program Features

Project-Based Learning



Maryville’s location in the heart of the St. Louis region provides our students with endless opportunities for cooperative education programs or internships in companies such as Edward Jones, Boeing, Grimco, Scottrade, and Turley Martin.

As business majors our students are strongly encouraged to join the Maryville Business Organization and the Regional Business Council Mentoring Program. These groups, along with the strong ties our faculty members have with the St. Louis business community provide ways for our students to develop contacts and learn about issues affecting local businesses.

Maryville’s Early Access program lets you include up to 12 hours of graduate credit in your undergraduate degree saving both time and money toward completion of your MBA.

Professional Partnerships

Maryville is proud to work with numerous corporate and civic organizations in St. Louis and beyond through partnerships created in support of our academic programs and student opportunities. The list of the University's partners is long, impressive, and ever expanding: Rawlings, Mercy, St. Louis Public Schools, Parkway School District, Edward Jones, Northwestern Mutual, RGA, St. Louis Cardinals, St. Louis Blues, and Maritz, just to name a few. Our partners provide students with opportunities to experience hands-on involvement in real-world projects, requiring them to hone market-ready skills even before they graduate. Students also experience a variety of work environments and develop a network of industry contacts through these partnerships, so Maryville graduates often have a competitive edge in the job market. In fact, many of our partners provide valuable internships—which can lead to full-time jobs with the firm or agency.
