"A great emphasis on entrepreneurship and finance" is among the program strengths that draw MBAs to the University of San Francisco's School of Management, which offers a variety of MBA program formats and optional concentrations to suit all needs. USF's MBA is available in three program formats: Full-Time MBA (two years), Part-Time MBA (three years), and an Executive MBA (twenty-one months).

In all programs, USF's "strong connections with venture capitalists in the area" as well as "the technology and innovation of the Silicon Valley" help make entrepreneurship "such a strength" of this MBA program. The MBA program's "international draw"—43 percent of students here are internationals—makes USF a great place for those interested in international business to learn and network. "I believe that anyone looking to get into international business would find USF a great fit," one student tells us. Each of USF's MBA programs maintains "small class sizes" that promote "personal relationships with professors," especially valuable since professors here "will get you business contacts." Each program embodies "the Jesuit approach toward a well-rounded education" and works at "ensuring ethics" throughout the curriculum.

The program places "an emphasis on group cooperation while nurturing individual growth."

School's environmental commitment 1:
The joint degree MBA/Master of Science in Environmental Management program is designed for graduate students and working professionals who seek or hold careers in the environmental field. The goal of the MBA/MS Environmental Management program is to enhance and broaden the skills and knowledge necessary to meet the demands and changes of the environmental marketplace - in public agencies and government bodies, the consulting sector, and industry.

School's environmental commitment 2:
Net Impact at USF is organized for and by USF graduate students to inspire stewardship in corporate and social responsibility, social entrepreneurship, nonprofit management, international development and environmental sustainability amongst the university's future business leaders. In line with that mission, students of the Net Impact club at the University of San Francisco School of Management began a movement that resulted in the reworking of all water fountains in the School of Management to include the capacity to fill metal, reusable water bottles. Malloy Hall, the home of USF's undergraduate business and management programs, became the pioneer building on campus to align itself with the new university initiative that seeks to ban the sale of plastic water bottles which can number as many as 5,000 plastic bottles a day on USF’s campus. USF School of Management Net Impact students also take part in service projects around the Bay Area.

School's environmental commitment 3:
The Green Team is a faculty and staff initiative that provides leadership in three main areas: education about the environment, stewardship of the environment, and outreach and service to the environment.

If you want to live and work in the Bay Area, USF will give you an edge in the local market. A staple in the community, USF has a strong alumni base and the school creates "good opportunities to network." Currently, USF graduates are employed at a range of presti- gious companies, including Bank of the West, Gartner Consulting, Wells Fargo, Salesforce. com, Silicon Valley Bank, Pandora and Constellation Brands.

For those pursuing new positions after graduation, USF Graduate Career Services hosts a variety of workshops, events, and individual advising sessions to help students with career planning and professional development.

Despite these services, students feel the office can continue to improve. "The ability to bring in more big name companies or even jobs for the MBA students" is an area for improvement, one student writes, adding "I believe it is difficult because we have to compete with Stanford and Berkley, but USF MBA grads have a lot to offer and I believe being in San Francisco they should be marketing the MBA program much better to the job market."

Campus Life

We bring together bright and talented students from across the globe to learn both the academic fundamentals of contemporary entrepreneurship and innovation as well as hard-earned business experience and insights from entrepreneurs and business professionals. Our alumni represent 117 industries in 50 states, 9 US territories, and 97 countries around the world.

Students Say

USF's "wired campus" in "one of the most beautiful cities in the world" offers "good resources" to students. "We have easy access to study rooms, computers, technology, and food (very important)," one student reports. Students' involvement on campus depends on their program. Part-timers, when balancing work, life, and school, can find it difficult to be "very involved [with the program] outside the classroom." The same holds true for the students in the "intense" Executive MBA program, who also happily report that the program "takes care of its students," a process that includes "catering all the food so you can concentrate on your classes."

Full timers, on the other hand, tell us that extracurricular life is "very active: a lot of clubs, good sport programs, a lot of speakers from Silicon Valley." There's also "Thirsty Thursday events, where students get together at local bars on Thursdays and have a drink." The event calendar is easy to track, as events "are summarized each week in an email from the VP of Marketing from the Graduate Business Association."

All here agree that San Francisco is an "excellent location" where there's "always some- thing to do." There are "plenty of attractions nearby, including bars, parks, and museums. Students hang out with each other outside of school at these places." The MBA population is "a good mix of students in terms of background, gender, work experience" and include "many international students, students from across the U.S., married and single students, as well as students who come from all sorts of professional backgrounds."

Facilities


The School of Management welcomes students to any of its Bay Area campuses. The downtown San Francisco campus, located in the historic Folger Coffee Company building, offers a premier location near the Financial District and Union Square. This prime location makes USF more accessible to working professionals and Bay Area commuters, and marks a return to our University’s downtown origins.
