The University of San Francisco (USF) saw something after the dotcom bust. They saw young entrepreneurs with more tech sense than business sense trying to create their own company and, after some success, ultimately failing.

They saw that this trend wasn’t going to end, so they decided to do something about it.

Therefore, USF – ranked in the Top Tier University Entrepreneurship Programs by Entrepreneur Magazine and among the Top 25 of America’s Most Entrepreneurial Campuses in 2004 and 2005 by Forbes and Princeton Review – has created a business computer science degree in entrepreneurship for tech-savvy graduate students interested in developing software and learning business skills at the same time.

Typically, entrepreneurial classes deal mostly with business and rarely with tech, but USF’s new business computer science degree combines both. “This way,” says Dr. Terence Parr, MSCS Program Director, “the IT types can endow themselves with some business acumen and build skills for leadership roles in the design, launch and growth of new business start-ups.”

There is almost nothing like this program currently offered in graduate school, and Dr. Parr goes on to say, “Abusiness computer science degree like this is important, because many hardcore technical people would prefer to get an MS with an emphasis in entrepreneurship rather than an MBA with some technical studies. Many of the best companies — Microsoft, Google, Yahoo, BEA and Sun — were started by computer scientists collaborating with MBA types. Our unique program gives future builders and founders of tech giants a leg up on the competition.”

The business computer science degree is offered through the Computer Science department for students pursuing Master’s degrees in Computer Science or Internet Engineering. Students seek one of those two degrees and target their elective course options to Entrepreneurial Management and Global Product Development.

University of San Francisco

The University of San Francisco (USF) was founded in 1855 as the first university in San Francisco. A private, Jesuit university with a long and distinguished history in the sciences and liberal arts, USF strives to educate leaders who will fashion a more humane and just world. Of the 8,400 students at USF, 40% are graduate students. As one of the six schools at the university, the College of Arts and Sciences is dedicated to preparing graduate students for the ever-changing opportunities and challenges of our world. Approximately 600 students pursue graduate school in the Arts and Sciences each year.
