Rady School faculty are recognized experts in their fields, always seeking new knowledge and new practices for business. They are dedicated to education, and to ensuring that Rady MBAs have the knowledge and skills to be effective as managers and leaders in a changing business world.

Rady faculty invest, in class and out, in their students. They are accessible and approachable, welcoming questions, projects and ideas. Their office doors are open and they can be found holding extra review sessions, working with students on independent study projects and at MBA coffee hours.

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.
