Education for Your Real World
Golden Gate University’s sole purpose is to educate adults — like you — who are balancing the complex demands of life. Since 1901, Golden Gate University has catered to the needs of professionals who are serious about advancing their careers. We provide real-world knowledge from expert instructors who work at some of the Bay Area’s largest and most successful organizations. The proven success of our undergraduate, graduate, and law alumni are a result of our small class sizes, expert instructors, and powerful alumni connections to the business and legal communities.
Golden Gate University Campus Week events take place throughout the year. They are fun opportunities to meet other GGU students, alumni, and faculty. Each campus week offers a variety of events for the GGU community — past events have included picnics in the park, health and wellness events, coffee socials, career panels, and more.
Upcoming Campus Week Schedule:
Each spring, Golden Gate University holds commencement ceremonies to honor and celebrate the proud achievements of its graduating classes. GGU has two commencement ceremonies — one for undergraduates and graduate students (Ageno School of Business, School of Accounting and Braden School of Taxation), and another ceremony for graduates of the School of Law.
