CLUB AND ASSOCIATION DETAILS

Graduate Business Association (GBA)
The Graduate Business Association is a student-run organization that serves as a liaison between students, faculty, and administration. We support the USF MBA Clubs, facilitate alumni contacts, and foster community through social and professional events. 

Challenge for Charity (C4C)
The MBA Challenge for Charity (C4C) is a non-profit 501(c) (3) organization that draws on the talents, energy, and resources of MBAs from nine West Coast business schools to support Special Olympics and family-related local charities, and to develop business leaders with a lifelong commitment to community involvement and social responsibility. These goals are accomplished through volunteerism and fundraising which are fostered by collegial interaction and friendly competition. USF specifically supports the San Francisco Food Bank and the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE), in addition to the Special Olympics. The club has been in existence since 2006 at the USF Chapter. Please email us at usfc4c@gmail.com to learn more!

Entrepreneurship Club (eClub)
The eClub (Entrepreneurship Club) is an MBA student organization at the USF School of Business. It coordinates all the student groups and activities that serve the entrepreneurial interests of USF MBA's. The eClub focuses on venture capital, business plan competitions, small business ventures, technology and innovation, and of course, entrepreneurship. From competitions, company visits, pitch nights, and guest speakers, the eClub will help develop connections and foster an environment for entrepreneurs.

Finance Club
The USF MBA Finance Club was established to help MBA students gain knowledge and experience in finance and investing. The Finance Club is slated to have guest speakers throughout the course of the year and meetings where students can learn about investing and valuation techniques in a collaborative environment.

International Students Club
International Students Club (ISC) bridges the cultural gap among students by providing a global home for sharing culture backgrounds, academic experiences, and business knowledge. This cultural exchange allows non-international students to understand the cultural of another country and international students to gain insight into the American culture. The club also celebrates diversity by providing a safe, respectful, and mutually supportive environment for the development of students. This purpose does not contradict the University’s mission or its Catholic, Jesuit character.

Marketing Club
The American Marketing Association is one of the largest professional associations for marketers in the world, with over 38,000 members in every area of marketing. For sixty years the AMA has been the leading source for information, knowledge sharing, and development in the marketing profession.

The USF MBA Chapter of the American Marketing Association is dedicated to helping our members determine their career path, and then build the network of connections necessary to meet their career goals. To that end, our chapter works very closely with the San Francisco AMA chapter for marketing professionals in the Bay Area.

Net Impact
Net Impact at USF is organized for and by USF graduate students to inspire stewardship in corporate and social responsibility, social entrepreneurship, non-profit management, international development and environmental sustainability amongst the university's future business leaders. We have a number of programs and initiatives to educate, equip and inspire students to make a tangible difference through business. 

  • Exposing students to corporate, social, and environmental responsibility issues
  • Introducing concepts of sustainability that are applicable in all sectors of industry
  • Connecting students and providing them with hands-on experience with businesses, organizations, and individuals who share Net Impact's core values.
  • Creating a network of businesses, organizations, and professionals for students to broaden their business education, refine their leadership skills, and pursue their professional goals.

Nonprofit Student Council (NSC)
The NSC is to provide a unified voice for students with a focus on promoting and improving the MNA program at The University of San Francisco. The NSC provides a vehicle for student perspectives, ideas, and a means of promoting events on behalf of the student body. The NSF club will promote co-curricular activities pertinent to the nonprofit field as well as support and encourage collaboration with other nonprofit professionals. The mission and purposes of this club do not contradict the University’s mission or its Catholic, Jesuit character.

Women in Business
The purpose of the Women in Business organization is to build a supportive network of women at the University of San Francisco’s School of Management that focuses on mutual empowerment, enhances professional and leadership development, facilitates discussions, and provides the opportunity to make lasting connections through informal gatherings, networking events, activities, and workshops.
