Why Michael chose Santa Clara?

“Santa Clara has a good business school. It has a very strategic area that would provide great job opportunities for their students while in school as well as after graduating. Many of my friends graduated from Santa Clara and all of them now have good positions in their jobs. I hope I can learn a lot in class as well as outside of the classroom and have a job after graduating from Santa Clara University.”
