MBA Dual Degree Programs
The University of San Francisco School of Management offers five dual degrees: MAPS/MBA (in partnership with the USF College of Arts and Sciences), MSEM/MBA (in partnership with the USF College of Arts and Sciences), MSFA/MBA, JD/MBA (in partnership with the USF School of Law), and the DDS/MBA (in partnership with UCSF School of Dentistry).
In order to be considered for a dual degree program, students must apply and be admitted to each program separately. University policy requires that all dual degree students pay the tuition rate of the program they started first throughout their dual degree coursework. A student’s cumulative GPA in all graduate coursework is listed on the student’s University transcript, with the exception of DDS/MBA students for whom only the MBA grades are calculated on the transcript. The School of Management calculates a separate cumulative GPA for the student’s MBA coursework for the purpose of evaluating academic probation, dean’s list, etc.
The JD/MBA program is designed to give law students an in-depth knowledge of corporate business practices and the managerial skills necessary for leading large firms and organizations. The JD/MBA program provides a cost and time savings of up to 24 units. Students must earn a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 at the end of the first year in the USF School of Law in order to be eligible to apply to the Full-Time MBA program as a JD/MBA dual degree student.
