Silicon Valley is renowned as an innovation incubator with exceptional opportunities for experience-based learning. Menlo College’s School of Business offers bachelor’s degree programs with four majors and various areas of concentration. The concentration in real estate has been submitted to the faculty for approval to convert to a major in real estate and real estate has been identified by the Board of Trustees as one of three areas targeted for emphasis and expansion. Menlo College has accreditation from AACSB and WSCUC.
