  •  Trustees approve MS in Supply Chain Management, BSC in Individual Studies

    Thursday, Jul. 2, 2015 8:54 AM

    The SCU Board of Trustees approved two new degree programs for LSB on June 5, 2015. 

    New Graduate Degree
    The MS in Supply Chain Management is a four-quarter, full-time program designed to equip students for entry-level positions in supply chain divisions of large companies as well as consulting companies at the forefront of new supply chain solutions. Graduates will gain a solid understanding of the complex relationship between supply constraints, customer needs and competition, in the context of big data that resides on and is delivered through sophisticated information technology. 

    Recruiting for the new MS degree will begin in Fall 2015 for a summer 2016 start. Contact Naren Agrawal for more information. 

    New Undergraduate Major
    Most undergraduate students at Santa Clara University seem satisfied to select a major or majors from among the many options available in the standard curriculum. However, some highly motivated students may desire to craft an interdisciplinary program of study that is not available within the confines of existing off-the-shelf majors or minors. Until now, this kind of “DIY” major has been available only in the College of Arts & Sciences and School of Engineering. 

    By approving the new LSB major in Individual Studies, the Trustees have made it possible for students pursuing the BSC degree to design their own course of study with a multidisciplinary perspective, guided by a faculty advisor.

    Details can be obtained from Bill Sundstrom, Faculty Director of Undergraduate Business Programs. 

  •  Undergraduate Business Program in BusinessWeek Top 50

    Thursday, Mar. 21, 2013 10:24 AM

    BusinessWeek editors placed Santa Clara University’s undergraduate program at no. 38 in its recently released “Best Undergraduate Business Schools 2013” website, awarding an “A+” in the faculty quality and facilities categories, with job placement receiving an “A.”

    The list is compiled from annual surveys of seniors and campus recruiters, and factors in data about starting salaries and graduate school attendance. The editors combine the current year survey with results from the previous two years to produce a score in each category. The Leavey School of Business was ranked at 35 in 2012; the school has appeared in the Top 50 since it first began participating in the rankings in 2006.
