The University of St. Thomas is in the vibrant Minneapolis-St. Paul area, one of the U.S.’s top 25 metro areas.  Combine that with a visible corporate presence of seventeen Fortune 500 headquarters plus a diversified list of other companies with offices in the metro area, and you have a very strong, supportive business community that attracts bright, talented people.
