About Us


The Santa Clara University Department of Management provides innovative and transformational educational experiences to develop entrepreneurially oriented and socially responsible leaders to serve Silicon Valley and the world. We strive to be a nationally- recognized nexus for advancing socially- relevant and rigorous research and practice.

The Department teaches undergraduate and masters level business school courses that provide students with a theoretical and practical understanding of organizations, of individual and group behavior within organizations, and of strategic ways of positioning organizations in their industrial, social, legal, and international environments.

The Department is committed to broadening our understanding of these topics and of sharing this knowledge with our students, by researching the social and international environments of business, the strategic management of organizations, the organizational dynamics of information technologies, and managerial decision-making particularly within ethical frameworks.

The Department provides a distinctive service to the University through the leadership roles its members play in the University’s Centers of Distinction and Business School Administration and Institutes.
