Concentrations provide Individual Studies Concentration students with study either within a discipline or in a unified theme across disciplines. In consultation with Silicon Valley employers, Santa Clara University business faculty has developed several concentrations to enhance students' understanding of current topics and prepare them for careers in demand throughout our dynamic economy.


These Individual Studies Concentration concentrations at Santa Clara University build on foundational business knowledge by offering advanced coursework and integrating current business topics. As a result, students develop expertise and connections in particular functions or industries. Each student must complete one concentration comprising a minimum of 15 units within a specific subject area as part of the Evening MBA degree.
