​About the School of Business

A world of opportunity—literally.

At USD, we cannot think of a more impactful life purpose than teaching business as a force for good. It is our calling and the reason why we are student-centric in all we do. We keep our classes small and engaging, so you can learn alongside likeminded peers, build working relationships with our esteemed faculty and advance your career. And when you are ready, you will experience the business world firsthand by consulting with companies in the San Diego community and beyond. 

You will connect with industry experts (like some of your professors), share a toast in Madrid (while studying abroad) and become a savvy business leader.

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 is committed to developing socially responsible leaders with a global mindset through academically rigorous, relevant and values-based education and research.

Academically Rigorous

Our degree programs have achieved the highest level of international recognition by being fully accredited by AACSB International. The USD School of Business has also been ranked among the top graduate and undergraduate business schools in the United States and the world.


Numerous degree specializations and co-curricular activities, from professional development workshops to industry association conferences, enable you to tailor your studies to your career interests in the private, public or not-for-profit sectors.

Globally Focused and Values Based

The USD 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.
