GGU Worldwide Extends Degree Programs to International Working Adults Studying Outside U.S.

Five new worldwide online graduate programs include DBA, MBA, LLM, master’s in project management, and master’s of business analytics. Undergraduate programs coming soon.

:::

Today Golden Gate University announced a new center of educational excellence through its GGU Worldwide program. GGU Worldwide creates a new way for working adults from across the globe to study at GGU without leaving home—earning the same degree as students who study from the United States. The number of overall university graduates is expected to double from 2013 to 2030, with students from China and India driving most of the growth, according to research from the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).

“True to our founding principles of serving the educational needs of working adults, GGU Worldwide now helps ensure that access to a GGU education is affordable and accessible to students everywhere,” GGU President Dr. David J. Fike commented. “This exciting program provides students with unique opportunities to earn a Golden Gate University advanced degree from their home countries.”

GGU has partnered with upGrad, a global leader in online higher education, to serve degree-seeking students in more than 100 countries in a variety of instructional languages. The first GGU degrees offered through the GGU Worldwide program include Doctor of Business Administration, Master of Business Administration, Master of Science in Project Management, Master of Science in Business Analytics, and Master of Laws (LL.M.) in International Business and Finance Law. Later this summer, GGU Worldwide will add Bachelor of Arts in Management and Bachelor of Sciences in Data Analytics degree offerings.

GGU Provost Brent White said, “We’re eager to welcome students from around the world to our innovative, practice-based programs taught by GGU scholar practitioners with decades of professional experience in San Francisco’s most successful companies. Through GGU Worldwide, we can now serve growing demand for graduate degrees from students in Asia, the Pacific Rim, the Middle East, and Africa. We will extend our programs to students in Latin America within the next 12 months.”

Enrollment is underway for the five graduate degree programs. Interested students should request more information by emailing info@ggu.edu. Classes start July 17th and will be taught primarily asynchronously with some synchronous elements available. GGU Worldwide is open to degree-seeking students who live outside of the United States. GGU Worldwide offers opportunities for students who start their education from outside the U.S. to complete their degree from GGU’s main San Francisco campus.

Timeline photosDear GGU Law Community:

It is with great sadness that I write to share news of the passing of Peter Keane, who died Sunday after a long illness. Peter Keane served as Dean of Golden Gate University School of Law from 1999-2003 and later, as a much beloved classroom teacher of Constitutional Law, Criminal Procedure, Evidence Law, and Professional Responsibility. Dean Keane always said that his greatest pleasure at GGU was getting to know, teach and learn from his students.

In addition to his contributions at GGU, Dean Keane was a prominent member of the San Francisco and California legal communities. Among other distinctions, he was appointed to the San Francisco Ethics Commission and served both as President of the Bar Association of San Francisco and as Vice-President of the State Bar of California. His law reform achievements were notable, including authoring San Francisco’s Handgun Control Ordinance and California Proposition 190, which reformed the State Commission on Judicial Performance.

Drucilla Ramey, who followed Dean Keane as Dean, remembered him this way: “Peter Keane was a courageous and inspirational leader of legal academia, the broader legal community, and his own beloved San Francisco. Whether as Chief Assistant Public Defender, President of the Bar Association of San Francisco, Dean of Golden Gate Law School or Chair of the San Francisco Ethics Commission, Peter met society’s greatest challenges head on, with his characteristic intelligence, bravery, and élan, and leaves behind him not only scores of loved ones, friends, and admirers, but also a more fair and equal system of justice.”

Dean Keane will be greatly missed by those at GGU whose lives he touched. Please join me in extending our condolences to his wife Nancy and their family. As soon as I have news of the celebration of his life, I will share it.

Sincerely,
Dean Colin Crawford

I had the pleasure of working with Dean Keane as a Board member in the early 2000’s. He was a great leader and inspiration to those he taught. Deepest sympathies to Nancy and his family.

Professor Keane was one of my FAVORITE professors at GGU. Such a smart and sweet person. Condolences to his family.

A couple months ago I crossed paths with Professor Keane in the rose garden at GGP. He was quick with a kind word and a nice conversation. I sincerely appreciate having known and had my life enriched by this bright and thoughful man.

He was a great professor and person!

Always admired Peter Keane; a great los to the legal community and all the people of San Francisco

Rest In Peace.

He was a kind person. I am sorry for your loss.

RIP…

Sorry for your loss.

RIP
