Business is a Science™

At Rady, Data is our Common Language and the
Bedrock of All We Do

Whether you’re studying managerial or consumer behavior, finance, forecasting, or innovation, you’ll do it with a quantitative mindset. We show you how to use data to test your assumptions, ask smarter questions, improve business strategies, and challenge conventional wisdom.

“At Rady,  we are not just teaching out of a 20 or 30-year-old textbook - we’re doing the research and creating the knowledge that our students will apply to today’s world and beyond.- Dean Lisa Ordóñez
