College of Business Administration and Public Policy Mission Statement

The Mission of the CSUDH College of Business Administration and Public Policy is to provide a quality education to a diverse student population preparing them for career advancement and service in their community.

Undergraduate

The undergraduate program in Business Administration, which leads to a Bachelor of Science degree, is designed to accomplish two objectives. The first of these is to prepare students for lifelong professional careers in commerce, finance and industry, as well as for management careers in the public and not-for-profit sectors. A second objective is to provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to obtain professional, entry level positions in one functional area of the business enterprise, or in some particular field of business.
The College of Business Administration and Public Policy offers Minors in Business Administration, Information Systems, Marketing and Management. The Minor in Business Administration is designed for students majoring in other fields who wish to acquire a basic knowledge of business for the purpose of career preparation. The Minor in Information Systems offers students the opportunity to acquire skills and knowledge in the application of computers for business decision-making. The Minor in Marketing offers students the opportunity to acquire skills and knowledge in the application of marketing concepts for business decision-making. The Minor in Management offers students the opportunity to acquire skills and knowledge in the application of management concepts for business decision-making.
The faculty possess a particularly strong combination of academic and professional credentials. Their doctoral degrees come from the finest universities in the world. Their expertise reflects specialization in different fields of business administration as well as practical experience in business and industry. The full-time faculty is augmented by highly qualified part-time faculty drawn from the business community surrounding the University. These faculty offer students a dimension of knowledge derived from actual experience, in addition to strong academic credentials.

Student Organizations

Student Organizations include the Accounting Society, the Information Technology Society, the Finance Association, Professionals in Human Resources Association (PIHRA), the International Business Student Association, the Society for the Advancement of Management (SAM), the American Marketing Association, and the Association for Production and Inventory Control (APICS). Students interested in participating in one of these organizations should consult the appropriate Department Chair.


Student Honor Societies

The College of Business Administration and Public Policy sponsors a Department Scholars program in addition to the Epsilon Mu Chapter of Delta Mu Delta, the national honor society for students in business administration. Founded in 1914, the main purpose of Delta Mu Delta is to promote higher scholarship in training for business and to recognize and reward scholastic attainment in business subjects. The Epsilon Mu chapter was chartered in 1989. The chapter inducts eligible undergraduate and graduate students each Fall semester. To be eligible for membership, students must have obtained a grade point average that ranks them in the top ten percent of their class.


Graduate

The Master of Business Administration (MBA) Program is designed to meet the professional needs of recent college graduates who plan careers in business, as well as of persons already employed who desire to extend their understanding of business and to increase their potential for career advancement. The program is offered on a full-time or part-time basis.
In addition to coursework covering the Business core areas, the MBA core curriculum offers concentrations in Finance, General Business, Human Resources Management, Information Technology Management, International Business, Global Logistics and Supply Chain Management, Management, and Marketing.
Concentrations in the MBA Program are intended to improve the capacity for effective decision-making, to facilitate professional growth and development for increasing managerial responsibility and to broaden knowledge and understanding of management within specific business functions.

The Center maintains computer records of progress toward completion of degree requirements for all Majors and Minors.

Each semester before registration, all students are encouraged to come to the Center for advisement and course approvals. Students should visit the Center for course approvals when adding courses during the add/drop period.
