Be a Silicon Valley Professional
The ultimate goal of our curriculum is to help students become a Silicon Valley Professional (SVP). An SVP is a person with the skills and tenacity to make change happen in their career and for their company, along with the compassion and ethics to make a positive impact in their community.
To accomplish this, we use a dynamic curriculum, featuring four available online concentrations in Leading Innovative Organizations, Marketing, Finance and Data Science and Business Analytics, as well as two additional concentrations that can be completed by taking on-campus electives. While selecting a concentration is not required in order to complete the online master’s degree in business administration, 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.
Data Science and Business Analytics Concentration
The Data Science and Business Analytics concentration provides you with the most up-to-the-minute analytical and data skills, embedded within a context of essential business knowledge.

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.
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.
