At Santa Clara University’s Leavey School of Business, our mission is to produce students that know how to engage with, and shape, Silicon Valley.

Our unique curriculum emphasizes ethical development and prepares students for the fast-paced world of innovation, entrepreneurship and global enterprises (marketplaces). Our rich partnerships with local employers create the ideal environment of a cutting-edge, networked, dynamic learning experience.

The Santa Clara Advantage is:


Santa Clara University is at the center of the most innovative commercial region in the world. Our place – Silicon Valley – allows for students to explore the elements of business success in exciting areas like technology, business analytics and real estate development, all while leveraging their own ingenuity.


Here at the Leavey School of Business, we make it our purpose to develop business leaders who can make conscientious business decisions. At Santa Clara, our students learn to balance the economic, social and ethical consequences of their decisions.


We are passionate about innovation and excellence. And, not only that, we are passionate about bringing an approach to education that pushes our students beyond innovation – into areas that combine ingenuity with values-based risk taking.


The community within the Leavey School of Business differentiates us above all. The faculty includes renowned scholars who are also celebrated teachers. Our alumni include leaders from all across Silicon Valley and at the end of a business school student's tenure, they graduate into a network of alumni that will further their career and make them proud to be a Bronco.

Santa Clara’s Business School is looking for students to lead the next wave of business innovation – and beyond. With a degree from Santa Clara University, you can turn your ambition, enthusiasm and optimism into action that will make a real difference in our community and around the world.
