About the Knauss School of Business
The Knauss School of Business at USD embraces a stewardship approach to business education. Stewardship requires businesses to protect and care for society in pursuit of a greater good. The Knauss School community of faculty, staff, students and graduates, embrace stewardship by applying values-driven, free-enterprise skills to improve businesses, industries, and the lives of people in our community and around the world. We provide academically rigorous, relevant and values-based education and research. Degree programs in the Knauss School are AACSB accredited, with the undergraduate and MBA programs being highly ranked both domestically and internationally. www.sandiego.edu/business/about/
Looking forward, the Knauss Center for Business Education will be the physical home for the Knauss School of Business, and more important, the mortar that binds us together is our unique competitive advantage as we deliver a rich, holistic student experience, crafted with a higher purpose in mind, for all the greater good.

Knauss School of Business Diversity Statement
The Knauss School of Business at USD strives to create a welcoming environment that promotes diversity, equity, inclusiveness (DEI) and ethics, commensurate with our Catholic mission. We value students, faculty and staff from different backgrounds, demographics, experiences, perspectives and faiths.
These differences broaden our understanding of the world, and by extension, our ability to excel in learning, teaching, scholarship and service. We view the promotion of DEI as inexorably tied to the maintenance and enhancement of academic excellence, our development as civic and campus citizens, and the realization of compassionate service.
We are committed to achieving a more diverse campus community. This improves our ability to identify challenges, propose innovative solutions and implement more considerate policies. We greatly value all efforts to remove prejudices from academic and business environments, to promote social justice through scholarship and service, and to attract and increase retention of underrepresented groups.
To this end, the Diversity 2024 committee and the Building Inclusive Excellence Council (BIEC) are dedicated to providing recommendations to promote DEI at the Knauss School of Business. These include faculty climate surveys, implicit bias training, reflections on and the standardization of hiring practices, seminars or search committees, as well as other workshops on prejudice and discrimination.
