About this course

The Golden Gate University (GGU) MBA program will advance students' leadership skills and business knowledge using an activity-based learning approach. Faculty members are seasoned professionals in their respective fields and will prepare students to lead in today's complex business environment.

GGU's MBA program builds leadership skills throughout the program, provides an integrated perspective of management, and allows students to tailor the program with one of 14 concentrations to meet their interests and goals. Concentrations include business data analytics, entrepreneurship, project management and even the option to design their own.

Since launching the MBA program more than half a century ago, GGU has pioneered evening and online programs for working professionals to achieve their career objectives. Students can proceed at their own pace in deciding how many courses to take in a given trimester and study fully in-person, completely online or a combination of both.
