About the School of Business
It's a world of opportunity. Literally.
Here at USD, we can't think of a better life calling than using business for good. That's why we're student-centric in all we do. We keep classes small so you can soak up as much learning and faculty time as you can. And when you're ready, you'll experience the business world firsthand by consulting with companies in the greater San Diego community and beyond.
You'll brush shoulders with industry experts (like some of your professors). Share a toast in Madrid (while studying abroad). And through all these experiences, you'll become a savvy business leader and change agent.
Our vision is to be a model of outstanding global business education, a leader in high-quality business research and a magnet for the most dedicated and innovative faculty and staff.
The USD School of Business mission is committed to developing socially responsible leaders with a global mindset through academically rigorous, relevant and values-based education and research.
The degree programs at USD's School of Business have achieved the highest level of international recognition by being fully accredited by AACSB International, and the school has been ranked among the top graduate and undergraduate business schools in the United States.
Numerous degree specializations and co-curricular activities from professional development workshops to industry association conferences, enable you, the student, to tailor your studies to meet your particular career interests whether they be in the private, public or not-for-profit sector.
Globally Focused and Values Based
The School of Business was one of the original signers to participate in the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME). Initially convened by the United Nations Global Compact and business school accrediting organizations, PRME serves to embed issues of social responsibility and sustainability in the mainstream of business education.
The University of San Diego has been a values-based institution since its inception, and the School of Business views the core PRME principles as an extension of its own mission.
University of San Diego School of Business students/alumni hold professional positions in established and entrepreneurial companies and organizations throughout the Pacific Rim and beyond.
If you are passionate about leading and transforming organizations in the global economy of the 21st century, the School of Business at the University of San Diego would like to hear from you.
