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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 www.scu.edu/business/msf/ and www.scu.edu/business/mse/
