About the Program

The Business Administration program of Mills College emphasizes the four pillars of social responsibility and shared value: ethical decision making and governance, social and community accountability, diversity and inclusion, and environmental sustainability. These values are integrated throughout our curriculum, our cocurricular activities, and our partnerships with organizations that share similar values. Throughout the curriculum, our faculty emphasize real-world applications and learning from both theory and practice.

Our school was founded to prepare women for business leadership, and today we have a vibrant community that welcomes all genders. Our business programs are distinguished among graduate business schools by the rich diversity of identities, experiences, and perspectives of our students. Mills is an important source of talent for employers seeking to strengthen diversity within their managerial and leadership levels.

To accommodate working professionals, all required business courses are offered in late afternoon or evening time slots at least once during each academic year. A few courses may also be available during the summer or January terms.
