It was a wonderful experience!

When I first came to San Francisco from France, I was intimated and worried about going to a foreign country and a new University.  My anxiety disappeared very quickly when I started my first classes at Golden Gate University! The whole enrolment team at GGU, as well as the professors made it so easy for me! I felt very supported and taken care of, which was really helpful. I chose this school because most of the classes were offered during the evening, which was easier for me in order to find an internship during the day, and enhance my professional experience. Also, I really appreciated being in small classes, with a maximum of 15/20 people, which helped me to improve my english and enhance my knowledge of the subject! Finally, the level of the different classes was challenging, which helped me to become better.

I am graduating in Spring of this year, and I am pretty sad to leave this campus! During these past two years, I was not just a student, I was part of the Student Government Association for one year, and I also got the chance to be an Ambassador for GGU.  What I will never forget about this university is that they don't only offer great classes, they trust you as a person, and help you to become more successful! 

The whole experience was amazing!

GGU is unique, diverse and really good value for money for anyone who is looking for a serious career prospects.

Golden Gate University with it's location in the financial district in the city means serious business. It is a no nonsense school that has a very reputable name among major companies in the bay area and beyond. Not only is the student population very diverse but the courses are very well planned and the professors that I have personally encountered are the Who's who of the professional world. What you get in turn - is learning the tricks of the trade from the very best! I have been very impressed by how approachable the faculty and staff at the University were! There are so many student clubs and activities happening all year round to give one a change from the academic life as well. All my classes consisted of about 15 or less people and that makes the learning experience more personal immersive. I am about to finish my Masters program at the University and I have received calls from numerous potential employers and I plan to start making a decision on my career too. Go for GGU if you are serious about making a promising career at a good price!

The right choice!

My experience in San Francisco and the Golden Gate University has been what I call "life changing". When I made the decision to move to San Francisco, I had no idea what to expect, I have been living here for four years now, and currently doing my second Masters degree at GGU and very happy with my personal as well as professional experience. Teachers at GGU are renowned professionals in the market, have a lot of experience, and promote a quite practical learning; the international community at GGU is one of the biggest strengths here and you get to know people from all over the world and exchange many experiences. The IAA office (International Admissions and Advice) is a wonderful resource and advisors are very helpful, always ready to help you navigate your academic and professional experience making the most out of it! Currently I got the opportunity to work on campus and also am doing an internship in my area of ​​interest (psychology and coaching) and I am very happy! The whole experience is definitely worth it!

Tax program in Golden Gate University is No.1 in the country.

I enjoy studying at Golden Gate University very much. All the advisors and counselors are extremely helpful. But most importantly, GGU has extraordinary academic programs with top-notch professors. 
Most important advice I would give is that make sure to take advantage of the academic and career resources that GGU offers. Speaker series, professional development organizations, and etc, could be a great tool to help you find the right job or connect with the right professionals.

Great business school!

I enjoy studying at Golden Gate University. I started studying accounting GGU without any experience studying it or working in a business field. However, the school holds classes for those who have no knowledge of business or accounting like me, and this is a great starting point of your study. Also, as professors are often working professionals, so if you are already familiar with the subject of your major, you could discuss real world cases with them too.  
You will see a lot of international students here, and that makes everyone get along easily with each other and feel comfortable in class. It is easy to talk to professors because all the professor I've had like and respect international students because they understand the language, cultural, and other challenges we face. 
As for Japanese accounting/tax students, all the graduates who wanted to work in the US got a job in the US. This is because GGU has an established reputation for accounting program companies, especially the Big 4 accounting firms. 
The school is located in the heart of San Francisco. San Francisco is suitable for international students since the city has public transportation to everywhere, and you don't have to have a car. The weather is usually nice all through the year too!
