DIVERSE IDEAS FOR DYNAMIC ENVIRONMENTS
The MBA program at CSUN’s David Nazarian College of Business and Economics takes pride in our students and alumni. Nazarian College MBA students are accomplished professionals representing incredibly diverse backgrounds in a variety of industries in the San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles County and Ventura County regions. Our graduate students view their MBA as a smart investment and have the desire to understand the business environment better and offer innovative insights.
Classes are held Monday through Thursday from 7:00-10:00 p.m. and occasional Saturdays. Students typically take two courses per semester and complete MBA coursework in about two years. Some of our courses are offered as “HyFlex,” providing the utmost flexibility for students who are traveling for work or have a family obligation. This class modality means that students can attend a class by video conference when these responsibilities prevent attending a class in person. Students reduce or accelerate their academic load commensurate with career and family demands. Elective offerings focus on providing timely and relevant topics that help differentiate a student in their workplace and add career value.
Nazarian College MBA students not only learn but also pay that knowledge forward by helping businesses as part of the culminating experience in the Nazarian College Small Business Consulting Program. Through continued support from the Wells Fargo Foundation, MBA student teams consult with and address specific needs of small businesses and nonprofits in the region. As a result, students gain confidence and greater connections, paying their investment forward to the community.
