The official Facebook page for the School of Business and Economics (SBE) at Sonoma State University.
The story of the School of Business and Economics (SBE) at Sonoma State University begins amid change in the 1960s. A group of forward-thinking professors moved north from San Francisco to challenge the status quo and establish a new campus and new approach to learning, free from the ivory tower.
Our mission is to create extraordinary learning experiences and advance best business practices. Values of community, sustainability, creativity, and progress are essential to the story of SBE, and instilled in our students through competitive undergraduate and graduate degree programs, professional development courses, and custom corporate partnerships.
Accreditations include the Council of Public Liberal Arts Colleges (COPLAC); The Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC); and the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). Fewer than 5 percent of business schools worldwide meet these rigorous standards of excellence.
Graduate programs are offered as Part-time and Executive MBA degree formats, including an innovative concentration in wine business (Wine MBA; Executive Wine MBA). These degrees are the only of their kind in the U.S. The Sonoma MBA for Executives in Wine Business is the first of its kind in the world. Programs are designed with a schedule, relevance, and leadership focus for working professionals.
Undergraduate degree programs include a B.S. in Business, a B.A. in Economics, and a range of cross-disciplinary minors. The business degree has concentrations in accounting, finance and financial management, management, marketing, and wine business strategies. Both degrees offer custom concentrations.
