Lincoln begins with a highly competent faculty and the most useful educational programs, and mentors each student all the way to graduation. Our students’ success proves that we make the right choices.

A multicultural student body and faculty make Lincoln a truly global school. Located in a powerful international hub – the San Francisco Bay Area, it provides a multitude of invaluable learning opportunities. A successful career in the 21st century requires deep understanding of international relations and the impact of globalization, Lincoln is well positioned to give its students such a competitive advantage in professional fields worldwide.
