What would be a great school to get a Masters degree in Business Administration in California?
1.) Stanford- Private school, considered the Harvard of the West. The contacts that you can make in a school like this are as valuable as the academics. Stanford Medical Center is considered one of the finest medical facilities in the world. Medicine is big business.
2) University of Southern California-Marshall School of Business- USC is usually ranked as the top business school in California. (see link in source)
3.) University of California at Berkeley- Arguably the top state school for the arts. But, they have a very progressive approach with a “free-thinking” attitude. The campus is located in a great location in the San Francisco area.
4.) University of California at Los Angeles, aka UCLA. Anderson School of Business. There are some real positives at UCLA especially if you are considering a career in the entertainment industry. The campus is located in Los Angeles.
5.) Pepperdine University (EMBA)- Graziadio School of Business and Management- Also located in Los Angeles, this school is still ranked, but seems to be in decline.
