Graduate Business Programs : Downtown Campus : Introduction
At San Francisco State University's downtown campus, you can feel the pulse of business all around you. From the global giants of the financial district, to the high-end retailers surrounding Union Square, to the fast-moving innovators shaping the SoMa tech scene, this is the real world of business. And you're at the heart of it.
In January 2007, San Francisco State University's College of Business Graduate Programs relocated to a new downtown campus at 835 Market Street (between 4th and 5th Streets at Powell), Fifth Floor. All classes and office operations for the MBA, MSA and Executive MBA programs are conducted at this location in the Westfield San Francisco Centre.
This exciting location is the historic site of the old San Francisco Emporium, best known for its eye-popping glass ceiling atrium, which has been preserved and now adorns the building. This dynamic environment in the heart of downtown is directly above the Powell Street BART and Muni stations.
The main purpose for this move was to bring our excellent graduate business education to the market. The Downtown Campus location makes the MBA and MSA programs more convenient for many working professionals who wish to pursue a degree part-time. The Downtown Campus also houses the College of Extended Learning and other programs of San Francisco State University.
