Breakthrough Online MBA: From Regional to Nationally Ranked in Two Years

Overview: Preparing Ethical Business Leaders to Transform the World

In 2017, Santa Clara University's Leavey School of Business saw the MBA market accelerate its shift online and knew it needed to bring its on-ground program online quickly. Leavey, a private, highly ranked regional school in the heart of Silicon Valley, recognized the need for an online program that could compete in a crowded market and secure the program in the consideration set for technology professionals seeking an MBA without leaving their jobs.

Everspring partnered with Santa Clara to build a market-leading program that teaches the skills and competencies students need to succeed in contemporary business.

Challenge: Build and Deliver a Stand-out Online MBA to a Competitive Market

The first step in our engagement was to define Leavey’s market position in a dense regional and national MBA market. In addition to developing a program known for its high-quality academics, our program strategy needed to strike a meaningful balance between innovation and tradition. The program’s location presented an opportunity to leverage the innovation and technology for which Silicon Valley is known while honoring Santa Clara’s tradition of ethics and social responsibility.
