Mission Statement

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). In addition to its graduate degrees in business, CSUN offers a pre-MBA Graduate Certificate in Business Administration (GCBA).

These 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 have learned into practical application.
