School of Management

The School of Management is a catalyst for change in business, government and non-profit managerial practice.

Through research and teaching that draws on the global diversity and entrepreneurial energy of our region, we educate students to build more productive and compassionate organizations. We value personal responsibility and integrity, open and disciplined inquiry, and a collaborative and enterprising spirit.

Honoring Norman McLaren, a USF regent and a long-term trustee of the Irvine Foundation, the undergraduate school is called the McLaren School of Management. Students in the School benefit from a rigorous academic tradition and the social justice values of a Jesuit university. They earn either a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA) or a Bachelor of Science in Management (BSM) degree.

The McLaren School of Management provides an education that facilitates student access to management positions, entrepreneurial ventures or graduate school. Moreover, the School’s connection to the dynamism and diversity of the San Francisco Bay Area contributes to an exceptional academic experience. The Jesuit tradition fosters thinking beyond the bottom line and toward the common good enabling School of Management students to grow in their understanding of project and people leadership.
