Introduction
AACSB Accredited

The Rady School of Management develops ethical and entrepreneurial leaders who make a positive impact in the world through innovation, collaboration and knowledge.

The Rady School of Management at UC San Diego is a professional school within one of the top-ranked institutions in the U.S. for higher education and research. Established in 2003 and accredited by AACSB International (The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) in 2011, the Rady School is the only new business school created at a U.S. News & World Report top 10 ranked public research university during the past 30 years, and is one of the youngest in the nation ever to achieve AACSB recognition.

UC San Diego is recognized as one of the top universities in the world and is fortunate to yield a culturally diverse, international student body. The Rady School embraces cultural inclusion as essential to the fabric of the school. Diversity is fundamental to creativity, to innovation, to insight and especially to understanding, all of which contribute to the mosaic that makes our Rady School so extraordinary.

The Rady School is committed to attracting, welcoming and engaging all local and international populations. The San Diego community gains from the intellectual stimulation, cultural enrichment, social commitment and global understanding of diverse populations.

Our Mission

UC San Diego's lineage includes 16 Nobel Laureates (former and current faculty) and eight MacArthur Foundation award recipients. The Rady School is at the nexus of this research, development and innovation — it underlies our curriculum and our academic model.

Campus

The Rady School is located on the northwest corner of the UC San Diego campus in La Jolla, California. The campus is ideally located near the Pacific Ocean, the U.S.-Mexico border and the Pacific Rim. We are a short walk to beautiful ocean views with hangliders flying by. A short walk takes you to Peets Coffee, a bar and grill and several other food options.
