Local News in Brief : Fullerton : Cal State Gets Contract for Pakistani Training
Cal State Fullerton’s School of Communications has won a $90,417 federal contract to conduct a special training program in advertising and marketing for a group of Pakistani professionals.
Eleven business and mass media specialists from Pakistan are scheduled to arrive in Orange County on Monday to register for the spring semester at the university. Their training at Cal State Fullerton is being funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development.
The program for training the Pakistanis is being directed by communications professor R. Dean Mills under the supervision of Edgar Trotter, communications department chairman, and David B. Sachsman, dean of the School of Communications.
“We were approached and ultimately selected to conduct this program because Cal State Fullerton is one of the comparatively few universities in America that has both a large, well-known communications school and a large, well-known business school,” Sachsman said. “That combination is the key and makes us very attractive.”
