How much does an MBA from Hamline cost? Unless it's offered at a bargain basement price, I can't imagine many people would be interested in the program. The Hamline "brand" is weak compared to the University of Minnesota and St. Thomas.

I guess if st thomas opened a law school, this was inevitable. I imagine the most useful thing an mba school does is give liberal arts graduates some marketable job skills. I wonder how employers view these things.

As someone considering going back for an MBA, I wonder the same thing. I have technical skills to back it up. I am hoping to take these along with me so that I can provide a service to those in management that do not understand how important technical skills are to companies.

I couldn't agree more! Just like UST, Hamline has no compunction about profiteering off of the student loans and other resources of gullible kids chasing the American dream. Unless he/she has a free ride at Hamline, any TC kid who can't get into UST or Carlson for Business should just forget pursuing an MBA.

Depending on the industry, mine is management consulting, earning an MBA is often necessary to make it to the executive level. The problem for Hamline, though, it that the brand of one's MBA is very important; prestigious MBA means higher pay, quicker advancement, etc. Hamline University's brand is weak, especially outside the Twin Cities, so a Hamline MBA won't be nearly as valuable as the same degree from UST or Carlson.

I have no problem with Hamline starting a business school, but anyone enrolling will face some significant disadvantages. Unless a prospective student canít get in anywhere else, is offered a large scholarship, simply wants to do the work for personal betterment, or just loves Hamline, why waste the money?

The problem with UST vs. the U is that the U is the only local school (with the exception of the St. Cloud office site near Maple Grove) offering an AACSB accredited MBA. If you need the prestige to get into one of the big financial institutions, the U, or maybe St. Cloud are the only ways to get the degree.

I know UST is trying to get AACSB accredited, but it ain't happenin' anytime soon.

Anyone currently inrolled? What is your impression? I am in the process of applying and would like a 'true' and first-hand account of the Hamline-MBA.

UST is more expensive, needs GMAT and I don't think it's that great.

Study Chinese and come to China. Enroll here for a business degree and you'll know after how to do business.

Chinese is easier to learn than one may think, about the same difficulty as learning Greek.

Enrollment tuition/housing is very cheap here, and all the girls are slender and beautiful.

Sounds like a good plan, but learning Chinese is no easy task. What is the typical cost tuition/housing per year?

Your written English flows well, how have you learned it?

I am personally in the Hamline MBA...rigorous selection process and the program is very intense and is in a modular format similar to Yale..21 months and you are done.For a private college,the tuition is very affordable..it's gonna be one of the greatest MBA programs Minnesoata has ever had

I have started attending Hamline about a year ago and I completely agree with Kacy, Jodwa and others - Hamline's MBA is a joke! A complete waste of time and money! Except for a few decent professors and faculty, everyone else is there only for their personal monetary good.
The program itself is rediculously crammed into one night a week type of deal and if you had your undergraduate in a business related field, the entire 2nd semester would be a complete repetition. They even use the same books I used a few years back in my undergrad! Outrageous and complete waste! They would not allow to transfer the credits, cause they were "undergrad". I had to attend the whole semester learning nothing and see my $5000+ disappear...
Hamline does not require GMAT, and that is the only reason why students go there, because if you have scored well on GMAT you would not go to Hamline. Good luck!

I attended the Hamline MBA for a semester.DONT WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY.If you want a credible program,look for a school that is AACSB accredited-The international premier accrediting body for business schools.Only 4 schools in the entire state of Minnesota have achieved his accredatation
University of Minnesota( Carlson School)
University of Minnesota(Duluth)
Minnesota state university(Mankato)
Saint Cloud state University
Research on schools before you waste yor money

First off Hamline is accredited, so I have no Idea what all these haters are talking about. The only reason it doesn't require the gmat is because it needs students for the new program. I went there because I had already went there for my undergrad and I actually liked it. Some of the professors are a little different and some of the classes are a little too difficult, but I promise you, there is nothing easy about Hamline University. It cost me 15,000.00 and I got a business education like no other.

Thanks for the destruction of the Hamline name, I expect a check from you in the mail for 15,000.00. Thank you.

Sorry to hear you 120,000.00 on a worthless JD. Now you can spend the rest of your life paying it off.

Hamline is good school, but MBA program is weak. They really teach undergraduate school stuff. Just a few professors are strong, but most of them are not.
