SRJC’s Business courses are taught by an expert team of successful entrepreneurs and experienced business professionals.
Current SRJC Business faculty have founded companies, practiced business law, managed major corporations, and held positions at a variety of organizations including non-profit institutions. SRJC Business instructors engage with working managers and professionals across the region, the Sonoma County Economic Development Board, and the local business community to present realistic scenario-based discussions around decision-making, empathy, communication, and organizational development—lessons that go well beyond the textbook.
You will find SRJC Business faculty to be caring, approachable, and supportive partners who are completely focused on your success. Partnerships with Boomerang Plus and the North Bay Business Journal among others, provide real world scenarios for students to pitch ideas to access funding, scholarships, and employment offers.
“Our team of experienced and dedicated SRJC Business faculty are here for your student success. And our fifteen programs offer a field of study to excite and challenge almost every professional goal.”
