Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2012

Ageno School of Business at Golden Gate University is an exceptional school. It offers evening classes, so that many working professionals can study there. Many of the professors are also successful professionals in their respective fields. The school is private and small. The facilities are new. Each classroom is fully equipped. It also offers many networking opportunities. Some classes are also offered online for students' convenience. What I truly appreciated was the faculty. I still remember all of the amazing professors such as H.J, E.V, P.D., SG, WS, R.MĀ and many others. I am forever grateful for their efforts to give us high-quality knowledge.

Degree: Marketing - Digital Marketing
Graduation Year: 2018

Unlike any other schools around the bay area, they won't charge you for out-states tuition! That makes it less financial burden for those from outside of California. This also applies to internationals! What I like about this school is that you get to learn from professors with practical skills and an actual industrial knowledge from them.

Hello All, I am currently studying in GGU and will graduate in 2017. GGU has given me a lot of opportunities to learn and to grow. I have gained immense amount of exposure in my field. Location of the university is one of the plus points. Only minus point is the university is pretty expensive but it is worth it to study in this university and gain the exposure the university and the location of the university has to offer. I would definitely recommend GGU to other students. Thanks.

GGU's technical masters program is a blend of technology and business. You get the chance to learn technological idea keeping business in mind. Best part of the GGU is most of the professors are industry experts which gives you clear insights on what's going on in the market. You get a chance to learn practical knowledge. I think GGU is one of the best schools to graduate from.

Studying in Golden Gate University (GGU) is a strategic decision that adds tremendous values. GGU professors are mostly working professionals with vast experiences. This distinguishes their teaching methodology, which makes our classes very practical and interactive. Regardless of students level of knowledge before getting into GGU, confidence level begins to grow as classes progress. Besides, the curriculums are tailored to the pace of change in the industry. Studying in GGU prepares students for the future. Additionally, GGU is in the heart of Silicon Valley, where all the innovations in IT begins. The environment is a perfect conditioner for students career because there are lots of collaborations between GGU's career office and the industry which, if taken advantage of, helps students cultivate the right professional relationships. For example, GGU hosted several leading Tech. companies on March 10, 2017 in a program called ELEVATE- a yearly event. Students had the opportunity to socialize and network with industry experts during this events. It was a great exposure and a motivating one for me. I met professionals whose story and diligence has spurred a greater level of commitment in me. More interestingly, GGU is known, also, for its diversity. Many countries are represented, resulting in a culturally rich student community. GGU is home away from home. Being here is doing the right thing the right way.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

GGU is an excellent program for any student at any stage of their academic careers. GGU's admission process was not too rigorous and that's one of the main reasons why I attended this school. All the professors and administrative staff are great and accessible. I never encountered difficulties when sign up for classes and the classes are never over-packed with students. GGU's website is top notch and easily to navigate from one section to another. On a personal note, Golden Gate University has to be one of the cleanest places in San Francisco....hands down.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2019

Golden Gate University is an excellent spot for those employed full-time. It offers the flexibility and class rigor to accommodate yet challenge you in becoming a better business professional. To add, the class size is inherently small yet diverse in nature, ranging from students with science backgrounds to those with strict business backgrounds. You can really experience various viewpoints.
