Personal attention

Small class sizes and caring, invested, experienced faculty truly set USF apart. At USF, you’re not just a number—you’re a whole person whose life inside and outside the MBA program matters. Be prepared for a rigorous curriculum and faculty to guide you the whole way through.

Affordability with transparency

$15,450. There we said it. We’re a private, Christian liberal arts university, and the cost of our accredited MBA competes with any public school in the region and beyond. You may have noticed universities bury tuition figures and hide mandatory fees. Here’s the math on our MBA: For the 2024-25 academic year, tuition is $430 per credit and it takes 36 credits to graduate. The one and only fee required of MBA students is a small graduation fee of $125. A good estimate for all books and materials is $1,200, but many students spend even less by renting or borrowing. Compare that to any university around. 

When can I start?

21-month program classes begin every 8 weeks. September or January start dates are also options. Applications are considered on a rolling basis, so apply today
