BUSINESS

PREPARE FOR THE REAL WORLD OF BUSINESS

The Bachelor of Science in Business is for people who want to hit the job market ready to succeed. More than eighty percent of GGU instructors are working business professionals who teach skills you can apply today. In fact, GGU was named the #1 school for adult learners because it focuses real-world knowledge for people with real-world responsibilities. This undergraduate program offers practical instruction in accounting, data analytics, finance, human resource management, information technology, international business, marketing, operations and supply chain management, psychology, and public administration.

The Bachelor of Science in Business degree (BSB) is designed to prepare students for success at any level, whether they choose to go directly into the working world or pursue a master's degree.

Specialized concentration programs help hone students' skills in specific aspects of business, including accounting, finance, human resource management, information technology, international business, marketing, operations and supply chain management, psychology, and public administration. With this education, our graduates are prepared for whatever path they choose to pursue after graduation.

Because many of our courses are taught by local professionals who are actively working in the field, our students also obtain a vast array of business contacts that can help them get a job and get ahead once they graduate. These connections, paired with GGU's focus on equipping students with practical skills, not just theoretical knowledge, means that our graduates are workplace-ready. That's why so many employers come to us with job openings: they know that Golden Gate University alumni are ready to come in and make a difference.

Another benefit of our BSB degree is that we offer guidance for students who wish to start their own companies. Many of our adjunct faculty are entrepreneurs who can guide students through their unique experiences of starting their own businesses. While there is no formula for success in entrepreneurship, a little guidance along the way can make all the difference, and thanks to the small teacher-to-student ratio at GGU, many of our students form bonds with professors that last far beyond their time with us.
