Menlo College, founded in 1927, is a private, four-year baccalaureate college specializing in business leadership and management. The College began as a two-year residential institution at which young men could complete their lower division coursework before transferring. In 1949, Menlo introduced its historic, four-year School of Business Administration, offering a premiere bachelor's degree in business. In 1971, the college went coeducational, and since 1986 has been a four-year institution.
With an enrollment of approximately 700 students from around the world, and a faculty devoted to undergraduate teaching and advising, Menlo College offers a unique, relevant, and very personalized educational experience. Because class sizes are small, students not only receive an enhanced learning environment inside the classroom, but also they regularly interact with and are assisted by professors one-on-one through advising, mentoring, and extracurricular activities. Fully one-third of the College's graduates have leading roles across a broad spectrum of business and industry. At least ten percent of its alumni are presidents, CEOs, or senior officers within public corporations.
With nearly 70 years of notable athletic history, Menlo maintains a tradition of competition which dates back to 1928, the first year the College fielded athletic teams. At that time, Menlo competed at the junior college level, which continued until 1986 when the Oaks gained NCAA affiliation.
Menlo College currently offers an outstanding degree in management based on a strong core curriculum with concentrations in general management, international management, sports management, marketing communication, and information systems. It also offers a degree in liberal arts with concentrations in history, humanities, and psychology and a degree in mass communication. The cornerstone philosophy of a Menlo College education is the development of core abilities that will ensure a graduate's success in a rapidly changing, 21st century environment. These abilities include innovative and critical thinking skills, communication skills, international and multicultural awareness, team-building and collaborative skills, and ethical and environmental responsibility.
Located in the beautiful San Francisco Bay area in the Silicon Valley, Menlo College is situated in one of the most sought-after business and living environments in the world.
