Designed to prepare food industry professionals for senior management positions, the degree provides expertise in retailing, foodservice, logistics, global marketing, finance, technology and leadership and in other areas, according to a news release from the school, which is part of Philadelphia’s Saint Joseph’s University.
“When you work in the food industry, it can feel like you’re always on the move,” Bryant Wynes, graduate food marketing director, said in the release. “The online class delivery method is designed so it’s as mobile as our students. Whether you’re in Chicago or Philadelphia, if you’re on the road working with clients regionally or nationally, you can earn a food marketing MBA degree from Saint Joseph’s University in as little as two years.”
Outside of foundation courses, the MBA follows a 36-credit, 18-course curriculum and requires participating students to work three residencies, according to the release.
The school plans to begin online classes this fall.
