It is my pleasure to welcome you to our website, where you can learn more about the UCR School of Business Administration (SoBA) and its various programs. 

At SoBA, we are “Leading Thinkers Leading Growth.”

With a more than 40-year history of excellence, SoBA produces leading thinkers who will be the business leaders of the future. By focusing on diversity, innovation, sustainable growth, and global influence, our vision at SoBA is to develop world-class leaders who, equipped with a world-recognized University of California degree, will step up with the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in today’s business world.

As part of the University of California (UC) system, SoBA is committed to providing a quality business education at a world-class research university. Our students learn from distinguished scholars and practitioners who have unmatched academic credentials among international leaders. With our broad selection of academic programs—B.S. in Business Administration, MBA, Flex MBA, Master of Professional Accountancy, Master of Finance, and Ph.D. in Business Administration—our students will understand how to identify and evaluate opportunities for new and growing ventures. They will learn how to manage and sustain opportunities for growth in organizations, industries, markets, and communities. They will grow personally and professionally as business people, managers and community leaders. And they will be driven by a passion for discovery and innovation. 

We are most interested in strengthening and expanding our partnerships with the business community, both locally and globally. I welcome you to come grow with us.
