The Leavey School of Business at Santa Clara University is home to the best Online MBA program for professionals in the Silicon Valley. The school’s business programs have been accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) and Santa Clara University is currently the highest-ranked university in the regional west per US News and World Report.
Current students of the Online MBA program hail from a variety of different backgrounds including software engineering, finance, marketing, and psychology. They also work at innovative, market-changing companies like Tesla, LinkedIn, Casper, and Apple. Additionally, the celebrated faculty have consulted and/or worked for a diverse array of companies – from tech giants like HP and Amazon – to major companies like Trader Joe’s, Clorox, and Visa. Research by faculty members has also been published or featured in periodicals like Inc. Magazine, Decision Sciences, and Harvard Business Review.
The Online MBA program aims to make each of its students a Silicon Valley Professional (an “SVP”) via the use of its SVP Dashboard. The dashboard tracks students’ proficiency in the program curriculum as they advance through their courses and it also enables them to coordinate selection of elective courses and co-curricular experiences to align with their desired professional outcomes. Just as well, the dashboard is designed to facilitate networking with classmates, alumni, and faculty. In fact, the Online MBA program begins and ends with students bonding with their cohorts and faculty members during the “Intensive Kickoff” weekend. The three-day experience includes field trips to companies in the Silicon Valley, fireside chats with prominent executives, lectures from acclaimed faculty members, and numerous opportunities to socialize with other students.
