    Nazarian College launches fundraising push

Changing the Face of Business

CSUN has opened the door to opportunity for thousands of hardworking, striving students since 1958, and its College of Business and Economics has grown into one of the top programs nationally.

Visionary entrepreneur and business leader David Nazarian knows this firsthand. A successful businessman, Nazarian attests that the seeds of his success were sown on the CSUN campus. That is why, in spring 2014, he made a transformative gift of $10 million to his alma mater, forming the basis of a $25 million fundraising goal for business education at CSUN that will keep the university rising among the ranks of elite business schools and make access to a premier education possible. Together, we are changing the face of business.
