"Getting an undergraduate degree and an MBA from GGU opened up many doors for me. The MBA equipped me with business knowledge and established meaningful long-term friendships with GGU classmates and alumni. Using the education I received combined with work experience in hospitality, banking, and non-profits, I launched my business, Hakim Saya, a licensed Finance Broker and Business Finance Consulting firm based in San Francisco."​

"With young children, a full-time job and a hectic schedule, I needed the flexibility to attend classes late at night. I discovered GGU through my employer, Gilead Sciences, and it was everything I was looking for."​

"My BA in Business Management with a concentration in marketing gave me the foundational knowledge I didn’t know I was missing. The courses helped me better understand the core marketing concepts I was already using to perform my job and provided me with the tools and confidence I needed to advance my career."​

Meet Hang Nguyen, the new president of the Student Government Association for 2021-2022 and editor of @ggusocial

“I am in my last year of the MS Business Analytics program. After graduation, I'd like to work within finance on the analytics side especially in the changing world right now post-pandemic.

What I love about GGU is that it’s an intimate environment for students. It’s so easy to reach the faculty and they are passionate about helping you. It’s an environment where students can feel comfortable and that’s why I wanted to get involved in the SGA. I want to be that bridge between students and the leaders of the school and the faculty so that every student feels comfortable reaching out for help or support.

The SGA aspires to lead with honesty, integrity, and passion. We want to give as much as we can. We really hope to foster a more connected student body that draws students together because I know COVID separated us in some ways. We hope to host a lot of networking events, information events or just fun events that are beneficial to students and give them resources that they need. We really want to promote that student connection. That’s what we hope for the future.”

#GivingTuesday is almost here! A gift from you supports international students like Outstanding Student Award winner Supriya Upreti, MS Finance 2021.​

"I hail from a small state Uttarakhand in the foothills of The Himalayas, in India, where basic amenities are still considered a luxury, and girls' education is one of the concerning issues on which elections are fought. Students cross rivers and walk miles to get to school. Before moving to the United States in 2016, I never dreamed that one day I would be a first-generation immigrant to the United States and would get the opportunity to complete my education here. I feel really fortunate to receive this opportunity at GGU."​
