  •  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. 

  •  Application fees waived for Alumni of U.S. Jesuit Universitites applying for new master's degrees at the Leavey School of Business

    Tuesday, Apr. 9, 2013 8:36 AM

    SANTA CLARA, Calif., Apr. 11, 2013 — Alumni of U.S. Jesuit universities may apply free of charge to the two new master’s degree programs in the Leavey School of Business at Santa Clara University, said the SCU graduate business admissions staff today.

    The two new master’s degrees, one in finance and one in entrepreneurship, will complement the MBA and MS in Information Systems that are currently offered by the Silicon Valley-based University.

    “With our nationally acclaimed faculty, location in Silicon Valley, and deep alumni ties, it was a natural step 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.”

    In order to receive the code that waives the application fee, alumni must e-mail and request the waiver code which will then need to be entered into the application before submission.

    Applications are due by May 15. Classes will start on July 8. More on the degrees can be found at and
