Graduate Programs : MBA : About : From the Director

Welcome to San Francisco State University Graduate Business Programs. The diversity of our student body and faculty, as noted by the Princeton Review, provides our business programs with a mix of individuals who truly reflect the global business environment.

We are proud of our growing reputation for diversity and sustainability management among business schools locally, nationally and internationally. Our MBA program has been ranked by the prestigious Aspen Institute’s Beyond Grey Pinstripes as number 16 globally, 13 nationally and 3rd locally in educating students about the social, environmental and ethical impacts of business decisions.

Our faculty comprises 80 full-time professors with doctoral degrees from the highest ranked educational institutions and a vibrant adjunct faculty of experienced business professionals. Our preeminent location in the heart of downtown San Francisco is exciting and allows us to apply classroom knowledge to local companies through student group projects, guest speakers and internships.

The College of Business is accredited by AACSB International (The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business). This accreditation provides our graduates additional credibility when applying for career positions throughout the world.

While a majority of our students are working professionals and attend the programs as part-time students, the career placement rate for the remaining full-time students is excellent. We hold career seminars and provide workshops in building career skills from résumé writing to effective interviewing.

SF State's Graduate Business Programs is an excellent investment in your future. The programs are accessible, affordable, accredited and aligned with the San Francisco and Bay Area business community. I encourage you to accelerate your career and apply to our Graduate Business Programs. A decision to enroll in graduate studies will transform your self-confidence, increase your business skills, and provide you with a lifelong network of business school colleagues.
