The Leavey School of Business at Santa Clara University, a Jesuit school, is located on the southern tip of the San Francisco Bay, in the heart of California’s Silicon Valley. For Leavey students, the many tech businesses of the region can be valuable sources for internship, job, and networking opportunities. On campus, business graduate students can connect with the greater student body by cheering on the Division I Santa Clara Broncos or by exploring the more than 100 student organizations. Within the Leavey School of Business, there are about a dozen clubs specifically for business graduate students, such as Women in Business or Consulting Club.

Academically, students in the Leavey School of Business at Santa Clara University have a few different routes to pursue a graduate degree. Professionals with at least eight years of business experience are eligible for the Executive M.B.A., a cohort program that spans over 17 months and consists of classes that meet Friday evenings and all day Saturday, every other week. The Accelerated M.B.A. is also a cohort program, but is available for professionals with at least three years of experience and takes about 22 months to complete.

Leavey School of Business graduate students can also pursue an M.S. in information systems.
