Innovation Ecosystem

Study at the Global Center of Innovation

With two campuses in the San Francisco Bay Area, CCA sits in the heart of one of the world’s most fertile innovation centers — and a leading hub of sustainability and social change.

CCA’s Design MBA program leverages this proximity to build close ties and partnerships with industry-leading companies and consultancies throughout the region as well as internationally.

Our program has dedicated studio space on CCA’s San Francisco campus, the location of its nationally recognized design and architecture programs. Students have access to model making and rapid prototyping studios (featuring 3D printers) as well as media studios for editing digital media, film, video, and sound.

Embrace a true epicenter of ingenuity and originality.

The San Francisco Bay Area is where innovation, design, technology, and cultural diversity come together. Our MBA in Design Strategy program places you with leading visionaries who mentor your design thinking and help shape your vision.
