In 1927, Menlo College was founded as a two-year program for young men to complete their lower division coursework before transferring to an upper division college or university. When Stanford University considered dropping its freshman and sophomore classes, it was imagined that Menlo College might become the junior college division of Stanford University. 


  • Silicon Valley, California is synonymous with entrepreneurship and leadership; an innovation incubator overflowing with opportunities for experience-based learning. Our small business school campus is located at the heart of this epicenter ideally positioning you to launch your career.

Menlo College has a lot to be proud of; with a 90% employment success rate in our graduating class, an AACSB designation that puts us among the top 5% of business schools worldwide and recognition from several external ranking bodies, we are deeply appreciative to be honored with such esteem.
