CCA offers three unique business degrees that focus on different aspects of innovation.
Each Design MBA program benefits from our innovative way of integrating learning of pragmatic skills with outside projects and working with real organizations headquartered right here in the San Francisco Bay Area.
MBA in Design Strategy, our original Design MBA program, now six years old, continues to be one of the best business degrees for innovation in the world.
MBA in Civic Innovation addresses the critical need to match the latest pragmatic organizational tools with specific policy techniques in order to successfully achieve innovation in a government or large NGO setting.
MBA in Strategic Foresight combines foresight tools with pragmatic business tools, which allows leaders to better meet organizational needs in the future.
Each two-year program integrates design and experiential thinking, systems thinking, and sustainability as well as new directions in strategy and leadership.
Note: Each Design MBA program has its own application process.
