"We encourage professionals to join and connect with program staff, students, faculty, and alumni, to learn first-hand why the Sonoma MBA programs can advance their careers and provide the right return on investment,” said Soo Haylett, executive director of Graduate and Executive Programs.

The Sonoma MBA programs have equal emphasis on business acumen and leadership ability, and a strong grounding in entrepreneurship, ethics, sustainability, and analytics, helping students lead with a positive impact on their organizations and broader community.

Information sessions are an opportunity to learn about life as an MBA student and the benefits, timing, structure, and other details of each program.
