Two Locations

Saint Joseph's University offers its MSFS Program in two locations: its Main Campus in Philadelphia and at Ursinus College (Collegeville), just 15 minutes from King of Prussia, PA. Courses at both locations are administered and staffed by Saint Joseph's University. Earned degrees are awarded by Saint Joseph's University, and the policies and procedures established by Saint Joseph's apply to both locations.

Saint Joseph's MSFS at the Philadelphia Campus (City Line Avenue)

More than 700 Graduate Business students are enrolled in classes at Saint Joseph's main campus in Philadelphia, PA.

In 1998, the Erivan K. Haub School of Business moved to its new location in Mandeville Hall. Located on the corner of 54th Street and City Line Avenue in Philadelphia, the 89,000 square-foot building also houses the Center for Food Marketing Research, Academy of Food Marketing, and Pedro Arrupe Center for Business Ethics.

This state-of-the-art $25 million building holds classrooms, lecture halls, seminar rooms, research facilities, computer labs, a teletorium (auditorium), faculty and administrative offices and informational gathering spaces. All classrooms are equipped with interactive communication and multimedia technology.

One of the most innovative teaching environments in Mandeville Hall is its "Moot Board Rooms", which are modeled after the moot court concept found in law schools throughout the United States as well as the U.S. Supreme Court. These rooms accommodate the teachings of real-world situations through dramatizations and analyses of interactive business negotiations. With space for 50 students, they have stepped, semicircular seating surrounding a boardroom table.
