Welcome

From whatever perspective you approach the University of San Francisco School of Management you will discover exceptional programs, faculty and staff.

These are our core values:


We are Academically Rigorous Undergraduate contests: a chance to compete nationally:

Sales Competition
The Russ Berrie Institute National Sales Competition
USF student Vanessa Cruz won 4th place overall in the Sales Role Play competition.

Ethics competition

USF was a final round Divisional Champion in 2008

In addition to class work, and academic competitions, our students participate in extensive experiential learning opportunities:

Our Academic Global Immersion Programs gives students the opportunity to travel internationally, and meet face-to-face with business leaders, finance ministers, local government officials, and academic professionals — from South America, across Europe, to Turkey and Dubai.

We are a Jesuit CultureService Learning  — for all of our students — is a USF requirement.  Management students lend their knowledge in practical ways to a variety of non-profit organizations to improve their operations and further their development.

At USF we believe in education for the whole person — not factual knowledge only, but personal development for leadership and service.

At La Cocina , for example — an incubator for entrepreneurs in the food industry —  our students work with women who are taking the first steps toward their own businesses, and thereby to prosperity for themselves and their families.tabletop
We are Global

MGEM 
The Joint Master’s In Global Entrepreneurship Management gives students the unique opportunity to study at three Jesuit campuses on three continents — at IQS in Barcelona, at Fu Jen in Taipei, and here at the University of San Francisco.  After one intense year, they are awarded degrees from each university.

GLOBAL IMMERSIONS 
Through Global Immersion Programs, our students travel the world — throughout South America across Europe to Turkey and Dubai — learning business and social culture directly from a nation’s leading entrepreneurs, national government leaders, finance ministers, local Chambers of Commerce and local mayors.
