Hult's San Francisco campus

Our San Francisco campus at the base of iconic Telegraph Hill is located in the thick of a city that epitomizes entrepreneurial spirit. Study in the global center of digital innovation at a campus that's ideally located for networking with some of the biggest and most disruptive companies in the world.

At the center of San Francisco

Our campus is adjacent to Telegraph Hill and only moments away from the Financial District, Fisherman’s Wharf, and Union Square’s vibrant cultural and shopping venues, meaning you are right in the middle of everything the city has to offer. The entire Bay Area is also easily accessible by public transportation.

High-tech facilities come as standard

Designed by renowned architects, TSAO Design, Hult’s San Francisco campus is wired with state-of-the-art technology befitting a city that dominates the global tech industry. Spread over four floors and occupying 60,000 square feet, this recently renovated space features six amphitheater-style classrooms, video conferencing stations, breakout rooms, and student lounges, all with high-speed internet to ensure you are always connected.

Why do your MBA in San Francisco?

Our dedicated Career Development teams work one-on-one with students at each of our global campuses to prepare them for the global job market. Here are a few snapshots of career-related events from San Francisco:

Cracking employment at Google

Hult students in San Francisco were given an insider’s perspective on working life within the world’s largest search engine firm. Hult alumni now working at Google returned to campus to host an overview on how to become part of the tech giant, and how to thrive once employed there.

Career connections forum

San Francisco’s startup-driven economy means 85% of companies in the area have 10 employees or fewer. Most recruit for internships, with over 70% converting to full-time jobs. Hult San Francisco strategically used the annual career event to bring these employers to campus, focusing on the startups that make up the majority of hiring companies in San Francisco.

Network hard, play hard

Renowned speaker Jaymin Patel hosted a seminar on effective group networking at events. Students learned quick tips (“Look for groups of people whose feet are facing out, which indicates openness for others to join the conversation”), as well as longer term strategies. Attendees then put the lesson into practice at an ensuing reception attended by 40+ Hult alumni members.

Bringing lessons to life in San Francisco

Hult San Francisco went to TomKat Ranch to see how the venture capital model is used for environmental and social improvement in California. Students discussed the routines and rewards of venture capital with the founding partner of the ranch, who moved away from high-tech investments into sustainable agriculture investments. The class experienced firsthand the role venture capitalism plays in a region embracing both capitalism and ecology.

At Hult San Francisco, I was surrounded by a community of go-getters and innovators who were ready to redefine business success— we were not only analyzing case studies, we were collaborating with local businesses.

Embrace the California lifestyle

Sports, yoga, and meditation are all considered vitally important to a healthy work environment; Hult San Francisco embraces this philosophy and celebrates it during our Well-being Week.

Open, diverse, creative, and fun— the Hult campus is a great reflection of San Francisco.
