Mount St. Joseph University is conveniently located in Cincinnati, Ohio. There are many Fortune 500 companies within the city, which makes for great networking and internship opportunities, both before and after graduation. There are also interesting places to explore, like the Cincinnati Art Museum, Great American Ballpark, Paramount’s King Island, or the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Gardens.
The mission of the University is to be “a Catholic academic community grounded in the spiritual values and vision of its founders, the Sisters of Charity.” Values, social responsibility, and integrity are essential to the character development components of education at MSJ.
The Mount coasts an impressive 11:1 student to faculty ratio. They offer five undergraduate programs in Accounting, Sport Management, and Business. Within the Business major, students can concentrate in Financial Economics, Management, or Marketing. Graduates can take their learning to the next level with a Master’s of Science in Organizational Leadership or MBA. MBA participants have three options-Saturday MBA, 4+1 MBA, or a traditional MBA. The traditional program is designed specifically with MSJ alumni in mind and allows them to complete their graduate degree in only six additional courses.
MSJ sits on top of Cincinnati’s scenic Seven Hills. The campus is only 15 minutes from downtown. While there are many fun things to do in the city-clubs, activities, and events make life on campus busy and exciting. Student organizations are broken down into the categories of academics, honors, social, student government, and activities board. A few of the programs that the campus activities board coordinated in the past have been community trick or treating, karaoke, movie nights, trivia, and open mic nights. Clubs that may interest business students include Habitat for Humanity Campus Chapter, Delta Tau Delta Fraternity, or Enactus.
The University supports non-traditional students in a variety of ways. The Commuter Council is a club designed to connect students who do not live on campus. Throughout the semester, students gather to talk about the unique struggles of commuters and ways to improve campus programming. The Charlotte Schmidlapp Children’s Center provides reasonably priced childcare services on campus for Mount students. Children from three months to five years of age can be enrolled either part-time or full-time. This unique resource allows parents to study, attend classes, complete internship requirements, and more.
Students who do choose to live on-campus have many housing options. Within these are two Living and Learning Communities. The Health and Natural Sciences Living Learning Community connects students who are interested in learning more about professions and courses within the fields of natural science and health. Lions on a Mission is a community geared towards the exploration of faith and integrating service opportunities within the college experience.
