Leptonic and hadronic flavor violations are studied in a general SU(5)-type supersymmetric grand unification model. Due to a GUT symmetry relating quarks and leptons, flavor violating processes in both sectors can be used to constrain a given single source of flavor non-universality at the GUT scale. Without assuming a very specific boundary condition on the soft supersymmetry breaking terms at the scale where they are given, sfermion mass matrices of 10 and 5 bar representations are examined, using recent B physics data and present and future lepton flavor violation bounds.
