Take Your Place at the Center of Innovation

Santa Clara University’s campus and the majority of your Online MBA classmates are located in the Bay Area, presenting valuable opportunities to connect with current influencers, enhance your skills, and grow your network.

Choose from Three Concentrations

We offer three online concentrations in Leading Innovative Organizations, Marketing, and Finance, as well as three additional concentrations that can be completed by taking on-campus electives. While selecting a concentration is not required in order to complete the Online MBA program, concentrations allow students to showcase an area of focus within their degree. If you'd like to specialize in a particular area of business, consider choosing from the concentrations below.

Finance Concentration

Marketing Concentration

Leading Innovative Organization Concentration

The Finance concentration will provide students with the knowledge and skills to evaluate and manage financial securities such as stocks, bonds, options, and futures, and it will familiarize students with key financial markets. Students will learn how to apply financial principles in corporate settings, such as choosing and managing investment projects, and in investment settings, such as by constructing investment portfolios. They will also build knowledge of the links between finance and other business functions such as marketing and operations.

The Marketing concentration will help you develop a comprehensive understanding of the development, management, and marketing of products, brands, and services in contexts including high tech, business-to-business, services, and more. Students will focus on state-of-the-art quantitative and qualitative tools and techniques that are utilized by innovative companies across their marketing applications

The Leading Innovative Organizations concentration will help you effectively create, organize, and sustain organizational systems and processes necessary for success in rapidly changing and turbulent environments. Building from the management and innovation core courses, you will deepen your overall understanding of the innovation context, leadership in complex environments, team and project management, and agile decision-making.

On-Campus MBA Concentrations

Online MBA students also have the option of pursuing one of three additional concentrations available to our on-campus MBA students:

While some courses required to complete these concentrations are unfortunately not yet available online, all Online MBA students with the ability to travel to campus for class are welcome to enroll in them.
