Saint Mary's University of Minnesota Reviews
Previously a student now a professor for the undergrad program in Winona. I can say I am disappointed by the lack of quality and disorganized hiring practices. Content is watered down, politics only success factor. I once had such respect for this place now I only feel disgust.
Saint Mary's is a top notch Catholic university with so much to offer. Small class sizes, professors who know you and want to see you succeed. There is an expectation of excellence and a strong feeling of community. Saint Mary's has competitive collegiate sports, a beautiful campus and a strong presence in the community.
St. Mary's University of Minnesota is an excellent university in a mid size town (Population around 30,000 during the school year). The campus is small, yet it has plenty of space for the diverse educational, athletic, and social activities one could want. The professors are always interested in each and every student and the student to teacher ratio was always aroun 8-10:1 in all my classes. It's location amid the bluffs of the Mississippi River valley make it an absolutely beautiful place to study.
This program is very difficult for a full time working individual. There is 6+ hours of homework a week including many pages to read, discussion posts, journal entries and lengthy papers due every week. Some instructors are flexible while others were not at all! Currently looking to switch programs, Do not recommend as there is no flexibility.
The focus of Saint Mary's IT degree plan is business intelligence. Every class you will take is directly linked to this.
Great school and great program. Excellent bang for the buck. I would say this degree opened up my career prospects exponentially. It was a lot of work, but worth all the effort in the end.
