November 2023 Nazarian College Student Letter

Dear Nazarian College Students:

I hope you are enjoying your fall semester at Nazarian College! For those of you I have not had the pleasure of meeting yet, I am the dean of the college, and I am so pleased to welcome you to our campus.

It’s an exciting time to be at Nazarian College. You are an integral part of a diverse, dynamic community of hard-working students, nationally ranked faculty and dedicated staff. During my five years as dean of the college, we have expanded programs, like the BSBA and MS in Data Analytics in the Systems and Operations Management Department and added new projects—including sought-after data analytics  and professional certifications and micro-credentials available at no cost to students.

Initiatives such as these have captured the attention of many in the education field and our reputation as one of the best business colleges continues to grow. The Wall Street Journal, U.S. News & World ReportMoney Magazine and Diverse: Issues in Higher Education consistently rank Nazarian College and CSUN high on their list of top educational institutions—for our academic excellence as well as our societal contributions.

Beyond the classroom, we offer numerous events and programs that complement your academic curriculum to help you get ready for the world that awaits you outside of Nazarian College. This includes our popular Nazarian Fair, which introduces students to the college’s many resources, and Industry Night, a career fair and networking opportunity. On Oct. 12, Eric Chan, CFO of the LA Clippers, made a great presentation as part of the Distinguished Speaker Series (see CSUN Today article), and our Center for Social and Technology Entrepreneurship provided a couple of great Zoom events: “How to Find Your First Customers” with Eric Rose, CEO of Pinnacle Product Innovation, and tomorrow’s “From Idea to $85M CEO: An Entrepreneur’s Journey” with Ken Floyd of Artissimo Designs.

If you missed these events, don’t despair! We have many more opportunities scheduled from now through the end of the school year during which you can develop networking and leadership skills critical in today’s business world. For example, we have Fast Pitch starting tomorrow and a Destress for Success as you are getting ready for exams on Dec. 11-12, 2023.  Check your email for updates!

That’s all for now. Keep up the good work!


Chandra Subramaniam, Ph.D.
