Gain the knowledge to be an effective manager with the full-time studies in Business Administration and Management from University of California, Berkeley. Put your skills to work with an internship at a leading company in San Francisco or Silicon Valley.


Join the Business Administration and Management program from University of California, Berkeley and start your journey to a manager position through our immersives. Whether or not you already have experience in business, you'll learn how organizations interact in the global and local environments, how their departments connect, and how their business evolves with the rapid changes of technology and society. Gain the fundamental business administration knowledge in your first semester and then dive deep into a field of interest—such as management, marketing, finance or project management—in your second semester.
