 Finance and Entrepreneurship

Leavey School of Business offers two new master's degrees.

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.

“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.
