Experiential Learning

Experiential learning is at the core of USF's MBA Program. We believe in the importance of academic work that can be put into practice outside the classroom, whether at a job interview, in a summer internship or with a client-facing project.

USF puts you close proximity to the biggest companies in the Bay Area giving you unparalleled opportunities to gain real-world experience in a new role. You will network with organizations across different industries, and build strong relationships with prospective employers.
