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 M.A. in Asia Pacific Studies/MBA program is designed to provide a humanities-based, interdisciplinary degree that applies business expertise to the development of Asia and its impact on global economic systems. The MAPS/MBA program provides a cost and time savings of up to 16 units and can be completed on a full-time or part-time basis. Students may begin either the MAPS or MBA program first or may begin these programs in the same semester. Students must earn a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 in the MAPS program to be eligible to apply to the Full-Time MBA or Part-Time MBA program as an MAPS/MBA dual degree student.
