Academic Programs

 

APPLY NOW FOR FALL 2014.  APPLICATION DEADLINE HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO JUNE 1.

California State University, Northridge’s David Nazarian College of Business and Economics offers three master’s degrees—the Master of Business Administration (MBA), the Master of Science in Accountancy (MSA), and the Master of Science in Taxation (MST). CSUN also hosts a Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) offered by its partner school Grenoble Ecole de Management in southeast France. In addition to its graduate degrees, CSUN offers a pre-MBA Graduate Certificate in Business Administration (GCBA).  

All of our programs are designed for fully-employed professionals, with classes offered on evenings and/or weekends. CSUN’s graduate programs in business are designed to meet the needs of the working professional. They combine academic rigor with real-world relevance to prepare leaders for today’s and tomorrow's challenges. Students learn the business theory behind the subject matter and put what they've learned into practical application. Master’s degrees offered by the David Nazarian College of Business and Economics (MBA, MSA and MST) are highly-regarded, nationally accredited, and provide students an exceptionally well-rounded business foundation upon which to build their career.

The Master of Business Administration (MBA) program develops leaders with an in-depth understanding of general business strategy‚ collaborative teamwork‚ leadership‚ and the skills and ethical framework to practice principled business decision-making. The cornerstone of experiential learning in the CSUN MBA program is the MBA Consulting Project. Typical consulting projects include feasibility studies‚ business plans‚ marketing plans‚ financial accounting and inventory control systems, new venture start–ups‚ and new product introduction plans. The MBA consulting project takes students out of the classroom, allowing them to apply concepts from their courses and gain valuable real-world consulting experience.
