Management & Entrepreneurship
Lead with Confidence
As the largest department in the business school, we offer core courses for all undergraduate business majors, MBA, and masters programs. From learning to manage individual human resource issues to designing the organizational structure of a global company, the breadth of our program allows you to lead at any level.
About Our Program
Our undergraduate management majors take a rigorous foundation of courses to foster innovative ideas and efficiently work in a variety of organizational structures. We emphasize management as a deliberate practice wherein graduates are theoretically informed, technically skilled, and imbued with a sense of responsibility and care for all stakeholders and the public good. And there is no better place than Silicon Valley to learn about Entrepreneurship and Leading Innovative Organizations through our MBA concentrations.
The minor in international business is designed to educate students in a broad range of management and business skills in a global context. The program includes coursework in language, social science, and international business and is open to all undergraduate students.
Declare an entrepreneurship minor if you're interested in either developing a business or working in a startup with the chance to explore entrepreneurship as a career option and acquire the skills that can help you be successful.
