San Diego: City of Innovation

The seeds of San Diego's innovative economy began with people. UC San Diego, research institutions and an active, engaged business community made San Diego a magnet for industry mavericks who redefined the business landscape. Because of their vision, San Diego is home to more than 500 biomedical companies, over 1,400 software and computer services companies and is considered the high-tech capital of Southern California.

The key to San Diego's successful development of innovative industries is the unique, collaborative environment cultivated by the region's top technology companies. The nexus between companies, research institutes and universities, San Diego is the ideal medium to foster increased growth in ground-breaking technologies.

The Rady School meets the demand for leadership and management education in the region and beyond, serving as a connecting point for entrepreneurs, research institutes and investors.
