“I was able to present the formulas and concepts I learned in the class to my fellow coworkers, as well as upper management. They applied it to the current and new spreadsheets, and my peers and the company were able to reduce labor time.”

Convenience without compromise

Our online program is offered through Cal State Fullerton’s College of Business and Economics, the largest business school on the West Coast to be accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). It’s a broad-based program that covers all aspects of business, so you leave ready to take on the modern business landscape.

As a student in this fully online program, you’ll be taught by the same faculty and receive the same degree as on-campus students, only you’ll do it on your time with a schedule that works for you. But that doesn’t mean you have to give up the campus experience entirely. As part of the program’s cohort model, you’ll collaborate with your fellow students and network with professors throughout the program. And when you finish the program, you can attend a traditional graduation ceremony on campus with your fellow CSUF alumni.
