School of Business

The School of Business at the University of Redlands equips working professionals and career-focused individuals with the essential 21st century business skills, expanded worldview, and extensive network needed to position them for success in their businesses, careers, and lives.

Built upon the rich history and tradition of a leading private, liberal arts university, the school blends foundational, ACBSP-accredited curricula with real-world practice and highly sought analytical and technological expertise.

Students learn in a small, cohort-based environment. Groups of 12-15 start and finish their degree program together, acquire skills they can apply immediately, and build relationships along the way. Classes are led by expert faculty and professionals actively excelling in their fields.


With campus locations throughout California and corporate partnerships that allow for on-site learning at your workplace, you’ll find a program to match your goals, location, and schedule. For more than 40 years we’ve been helping students make quantum career leaps while maintaining balanced lives. We invite you to join them.
