Small Classes

As part of the Full-Time MBA program, students learn with a select cohort of professionals who come from around the world to experience San Francisco's innovative business culture first-hand.

Diverse Colleagues

The University of San Francisco has small class sizes of 20-30 students, and the cohort* system means that collaboration and cooperation are more than just leadership ideals we teach - they are fundamental to the infrastructure of the program.

*A cohort is a group of students who work through a curriculum together to achieve the same academic degree together.
