Sonoma State University, School of Business and Economics

We offer a wide variety of programs that serve the career interests of a vibrant student population as well as the professional needs of organizations in the North San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. At the School of Business and Economics (SBE), our goal is to have a strong economic and social impact on our region by preparing our students to be innovative leaders both in the workplace and in the community.  In direct alignment with what employers need from an educated workforce, we emphasize the development of students' skills in the areas of critical thinking, ethical decision-making, quantitative analysis, leadership, entrepreneurship, global perspective, and oral and written communication.  SBE faculty are dedicated to student success and inclusive excellence, providing a learning environment that combines the deep expertise of academic faculty with the real-world insights of practicing professionals. The success of our programs also depends on our extensive connections within the North San Francisco Bay area.  For our students and alumni, these connections have resulted in a strong network of employers that provides mentoring, internship, and job opportunities.  For our community partners, this means there are many ways to engage with us in the service of our educational mission. So if you're ready to reach the next stage of your life, career, or business growth, we're ready to lead. Join us in our programs, in developing North Bay business talent, or in investing in our vision to become the nucleus of a thriving North Bay economy.
