At USD, we're proud to offer you an MBA program that's deeply rooted in values-based education. In fact, we incorporate these four main areas throughout the MBA curriculum: I) Leadership Development II) Business Function Core III) Corporate Social Responsibility, Sustainability and Ethics and IV) Integrative Problem Solving.

For full-time MBA students, we typically schedule core courses Monday through Thursday between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Our onsite professional MBA students meet two nights a week for classes while hybrid PMBA attend classes one weekend per month followed by online learning at their own pace.
