    Friday, Dec. 7, 2012 3:02 PM

    To get a jump-start on SCU's MBA/MSIS degrees, savvy applicants will begin classes in Spring 2013--if their final application is submitted by January 20.

    "We know busy professionals don't want to wait until Fall to get started on their graduate business degrees," said Tammy Fox, director of Graduate Business Admissions for the Leavey School of Business. "Beginning classes in April means they are that much closer to joining Santa Clara's vast business alumni network."

  •  SCU's MBA Degree Ranked by US News

    Tuesday, Mar. 13, 2012 11:51 AM

    U.S. News & World Report magazine has ranked the part-time Master of Business Administration program at Santa Clara University’s Leavey School of Business No. 41 in the nation, out of of 326 part-time M.B.A. programs, based on peer evaluations and the caliber of entering students.

    In addition, the Executive MBA program was listed #15 nationally.

    The information was released Monday by editors of U.S. News & World Report's “Best Graduate Schools 2013” edition.

    “We’re pleased to see that the U.S. News ranking has again placed SCU among the top part-time programs in the nation,” said S. Andrew Starbird, dean of the Leavey School of Business at Santa Clara University. “While no rankings are without flaws, we appreciate being recognized for our innovative programs like entrepreneurship, our high-quality students, our extensive Silicon Valley connections, and the strong reputation of our faculty in areas like behavioral finance, business ethics, and international management.”

    Last year, when the rankings were based solely on nominations by higher-education institutions with part-time MBA programs, SCU’s program was ranked No. 50 in the country. The Executive MBA was ranked No. 18.
