MBA students are active participants in student government, leadership programs, and clubs supported by the School of Business faculty and staff.
They also take advantage of all-campus and graduate student clubs, which brings together students from across disciplines and interests in social and learning opportunities.
USD has much to offer for those interested in an active student life outside the classroom. In addition to our Leadership Fellows Program and Leadership Labs, some of the most popular organizations and clubs are:
Graduate Business Student Association (GBSA)
USD Entrepreneurship Club
The USD Entrepreneurship Club is committed to bringing together students, entrepreneurs, alumni, and faculty with the hopes of building relationships and fostering an interactive learning environment to explore the world of entrepreneurship.
Members of the USD E-Club come from a variety of backgrounds, industries, and educations. The E-Club is event driven with monthly E-Club member events mixed in with off campus partner events. We are composed of current undergraduate and graduate students from various schools from the University of San Diego.
