Realizing a need for educational alternatives in the nineteenth century, two separate business colleges formed to offer a solution. Today, realizing a need for additional online alternatives, these same two institutions, Globe University and Minnesota School of Business have jointly networked under the ownership of the Terry and Kaye Myhre family to deliver a quality education and prepare students for success. The institutions currently offer Master’s, Bachelor’s, and Associate’s degrees, as well as diplomas in the fields of Business, Creative Media, Health Science, Technology and Legal Science. Globe University also offers an online Doctorate degree in Business Administration. Year-round course scheduling allows students to work at an accelerated pace completing Associate’s degrees in eighteen months and Bachelor’s degrees in three years. Online programs of Globe University/Minnesota School of Business are nationally accredited by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools.

Online classes retain the same quality and content found in on-campus courses. They simply differ in the method of delivery and the flexibility given to students to choose the time of day that they attend classes. Online students begin with the CampusConnect course, an orientation program that prepares students for online studies by teaching effective communication methods, as well as instructions for taking exams, submitting assignments and more. Students can contact instructors via message boards, email, during online office hours and by phone. The online library offers extensive databases and maintains a Chat-with-a-Librarian service. Online tutoring and technical support are available seven days a week and students are welcome to visit a campus location to access additional resources.
Admission processes for most undergraduates follow a six-step process. Students should initially schedule an appointment with an admissions representative and then complete the online application form. The third step requires students to choose a program and next they will need to complete the Accuplacer assessment. Some students may be eligible to skip this step. Once the assessment is completed, students can speak with a financial aid representative to identify possible benefit packages. Finally, students can register for classes and attend necessary orientation programs. Students will need to submit a high school diploma or GED certificate along with transcripts from secondary and post-secondary schools. Graduate students will need to submit transcripts, degree completion documents, a professional resume, two professional letters of recommendation, along with a professional statement/goal. Graduate students should also contact a school representative for specific requirements of individual degree programs. International students should also contact the school for specific requirements (they vary by program), but all students must be English proficient.
Tuition and financial aid are a priority for many students and Globe University/Minnesota School of Business financial aid representatives help guide students through each phase of the application process. Tuition and fees vary by program, especially graduate degrees, so students should visit the website for the most accurate figures.
Additional application, course, and textbook fees are not included.
