CSU San Bernardino to Launch Redesigned MBA Program this Fall

MBA now features new curriculum and a project component

California State University at San Bernardino (CSUSB) has redesigned its MBA program, adding some new curriculum and more focus on experiential learning.

The new courses that will be introduced include a graduate-level writing, oral, and visual communication class, as well as data-driven decision-making course. Students will take both classes in the first quarter of the program, to build a foundation for the rest of the MBA experience.

Furthermore, the MBA now features more of a focus on experiential learning. For instance, students will now work in teams on a hands-on project component, which features a real-world consulting assignment. Students will also have opportunities to participate in internships and a one- to two-week study abroad program.

Finally, the MBA will now include an online "bootcamp" as a kind of pre-program orientation.

CSUSB is accredited by AACSB International. Classes in the MBA program meet twice a week in the evenings.

The MBA's focus areas will remain the same. Students can choose to focus in one of the following subject areas: accounting, cyber security, entrepreneurship, finance, information systems and technology (big data), marketing, or global supply chain management.

CSUSB is set to introduce the changes in the fall. Today is the application deadline for the fall intake; applications for the winter and spring intakes are still open.
