"The University of San Francisco is a good school in a great location. The program I am reviewing is the Part Time MBA program at the downtown campus. The University has been very welcoming and accommodating to students who have different career goals and different educational and career backgrounds. The staff is responsive to student concerns and attempts to resolve any issues quickly. The location can't be beat. Downtown between the Financial District and AT&T Park leaves you in the middle of many tech startups, financial companies, and older established businesses. Opportunities abound to have guest speakers, office visits, and collaboration with innovators. Some of the class instructors did not meet my expectations. Some of the elective (adjunct professors) did not appear to have good teaching methods. While they may have been subject matter experts, they could not necessarily teach the content effectively. The professors for the core classes were quite competent and willing to go beyond to help students understand the material and provide resources as needed. The San Francisco area is very competitive. Not everyone will gain admission to nearby Stanford and Berkeley so as a result this university gets some talented people to join the program. Overall, I am happy with my decision to enroll in the program, but each prospective student will need to apply for themselves."

"The JD/MBA program is great for those interested in a career of corporate law or those interested in starting their own firm. It has significantly improved since I began, as communication between both programs was lacking, which was a detriment to the JD/MBA students."

"The pros of the school are that there are some really good analytics professors. The professors are very accessible and friendly, it is the exception that a professor is not accessible. Other pros: small class sizes, being located in downtown San Francisco, and an international student body. The big con for me was the career services department. When asked why companies weren't being brought on campus to recruit our students the response was: "we are too small for companies to want to come to us." This shows laziness and a sheer lack of imagination on their part. While we have to compete with Berkeley and Stanford MBAs for jobs, it is San Francisco. There are many mid-sized companies that need MBAs and would gladly come to USF to recruit."

"As a part-time MBA student I had to balance a full-time career with an intensive course schedule. The professors were all very focused on learning and practice, which I think empowers students to make the most of every class. The faculty at USF is very reputable and had deep industry experience to add context to their curriculum. The completion of this MBA program has dramatically expanded my business knowledge and prepared me very well to pursue a new career in the investment field."
