The University of San Francisco has earned a reputation for academic excellence that dates back to its founding as a Jesuit Catholic university in 1855. Today, USF is listed among “America’s Best Colleges” by U.S. News & World Report.
Established in 1924, USF’s School of Business and Professional Studies — which includes the Masagung Graduate School of Management and the McLaren College of Business — is committed to preparing men and women for leadership positions in the public and private sectors. Certificate students use proven video-based e-learning technology to access lectures from USF’s accomplished online faculty anytime and anywhere, and network with other professionals from across the country and around the world.
The University of San Francisco is regionally accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), and was unconditionally reaffirmed for the maximum seven years during its most recent review. Regional accreditation represents the highest standard available among U.S. accrediting bodies. A founding member of WASC's antecedent, the Western College Association (WCA), USF was first accredited in 1950.
USF’s School of Business and Professional Studies is accredited by AACSB International (the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business), the premier accrediting body for business schools. The Masagung Graduate School of Management's MBA program was granted accreditation in 1981, while the McLaren College of Business has held AACSB accreditation since 1953.
