Nov 8, 2010

Menlo College is a small business college on a mission to become one of the top business schools in the country.  It is located on 45 acres in Atherton, California; 25 miles southeast of San Francisco and 20 miles northwest of San Jose.  The college is currently in the pre-accreditation phase with the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide.

650 undergraduates are enrolled and students may pursue a Bachelor of Science in Business or a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology.  Popular majors include sports management, accounting, finance, marketing and a new entrepreneur program.

The average GPA for accepted students is 3.0 and the mid 50% SAT and ACT scores are 1270 to 1620 and 17 to 23 respectively. Minimum GPA and test scores continue to rise as the school becomes more selective.  Last year, 50% of the applicants were accepted with 40% of the students from out-of-state and international.

Menlo College is a great option for the B/C student athlete interested in a degree in business. 80% of the students are athletes and take note ladies…60% of the student body is male thanks to the football team!
