Develop a global mindset. Instill social responsibility. Improve your world.

Our commitment to helping you become a top business leader who will shape a better world is why our MBA program was ranked #1 in San Diego, #6 in California and in the top 100 globally by Financial Times (2018).

Our MBA is offered in two formats: full-time and part-time, both of which can be completed in as little as two years. The full-time MBA program is based on a traditional schedule while the part-time MBA program gives you the flexibility to take evening classes only or choose a hybrid study option. Either way, you will receive the education you need to take your company, your team and your career to the next level.

Want to take the next step in your career? 94% of our graduates said the MBA program had a positive ROI in their careers and 53% of recent graduates received a salary increase of $20K or more after completing the program. You will also have the option to expand your expertise with a dual degree program: JD/MBA, MBA/MS Finance, MBA/MS Real Estate, MBA/MS Supply Chain, or MBA/MS Business Analytics.

Looking for flexibility? Earn your MBA at your own pace, according to your own schedule. In the part-time MBA program, students have two flexible options: all evening classes on campus or a hybrid program consisting of 60% classes on campus and 40% classes online — and you can mix and match these options after your first semester.

Want to start your own business? No one will prepare you better. As an MBA student at the USD School of Business, you will have the opportunity to compete in our Venture Vetting (V2) Pitch Competition and the Fowler Global Social Innovation Challenge. Both competitions provide coaching and award seed funding to students. USD's Small Business Development Center, The Brink, supports startups and tech companies and is ranked the #1 business accelerator in San Diego by the San Diego Business Journal.

Why USD? With small class sizes and an intimate cohort format, you'll make lifelong professional and personal connections. Tailor your curriculum by choosing program length, area of emphasis and various international study options. Your USD MBA will help you become a business leader and an agent for change.
