  •  Two MS Degrees Announced

    Tuesday, Apr. 9, 2013 7:59 PM

    Santa Clara University’s Leavey School of Business will begin offering two new Master of Science degrees this summer, one in finance and one in entrepreneurship.

    The two new master’s degrees will complement the Master of Business Administration and Master of Science in Information Systems that are currently offered as advanced degrees by the Silicon Valley-based University.

    “With our nationally acclaimed faculty, location in Silicon Valley, and deep alumni ties, it was a natural for us to offer these two master’s degrees,” said S. Andrew Starbird, dean of the Leavey School of Business.  “The finance degree is ideal for students seeking deeper analytical understanding for today’s venture-capital and financial marketplace. And the entrepreneurship degree will give students vital knowledge to find new market opportunities, evaluate customer needs, and understand what’s required to ‘scale up’ a good idea.”

    The M.S. in Finance will include classes introducing students to sophisticated financial-statement analysis and understanding of U.S. and international financial markets and institutions. The M.S. in Entrepreneurship will offer classes in managing innovation, intellectual property and economics for business decisions. Both degrees will incorporate Santa Clara University’s longstanding emphasis on business ethics, including a course in business integrity and society.

    Classes will start July 8. More on the degrees can be found at www.scu.edu/business/msf/ or www.scu.edu/business/mse.

  •  Start-up Careers Featured Mar 6

    Undergraduate and graduate students seeking internships and employment opportunities in regional start-ups will find an array of companies at the Startup Expo on March 6, from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. in Benson Memorial Center on campus.

    Sponsored by the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Santa Clara University School of Business, the career fair brings employers seeking a typical Santa Clara student: bright, ambitious, and with a wide variety of skills ready to be put to work in an entrepreneurial setting.

    Startup Expo is in its third year, and each year the number of companies represented grows. Among the companies at last year's Expo were RoboteX, Stylematic, Cahoot, Optown, Red Seraphim, and InnoVentions.
