School of Business and Economics

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Sonoma State University has transitioned to remote instruction for spring 2020. Employees are working remotely in almost all departments. Email is the best way to communicate with our faculty and staff. Please see the SSU COVID-19 site for more information. 


True to our founding, the School of Business and Economics continues to challenge the status quo and serve our community through inclusivity.

We believe everyone has the potential for excellence and that through collaboration, individual attention, and respect, anyone's potential can be developed better than the way it had always been done in higher education.

With our vision of being the catalyst for a thriving North Bay economy with global impact, we are dedicated to serving the San Francisco North Bay area and beyond with market-relevant undergraduate, graduate, and professional certification programs. Located at the intersection of Sonoma, Napa, and San Francisco, the SBE is the leading school with a dedicated Wine Business Institute focused on educating wine business leaders and elevating the wine community through cutting edge research and education programs.
