April 1, 2011—Students interested in pursuing careers in business, snorkeling or vacationing have a new option in St. Thomas with the new St. Thomas St. Thomas campus. The Opus College of Business announced today that it is opening a new graduate campus in Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands.
“We decided it would be best to capitalize on the demand for Caribbean business education—and the confusion in the marketplace—and open a St. Thomas campus in St. Thomas,” said Chris Puto, Ph.D., dean of the Opus College of Business.
The St. Thomas St. Thomas campus (also known as the UST South campus) will allow the college to continue to meet the demands of the job market in the Caribbean for highly principled global business leaders.
The campus will be located in downtown Charlotte Amalie, giving students the same access to businesses and opportunity they find at UST’s downtown Minneapolis campus. Though without skyways, students will have to get used to walking outside.
“Winters at UST will never be a problem again,” said Dustin Cornwell, program director for the Full-time UST MBA. “We’re moving all of our admissions staff to the St. Thomas St. Thomas campus as soon as possible.”
