Cal State L.A. MBA Program
Among Top 10 in L.A. County

Los Angeles, CA – The Los Angeles Business Journal (LABJ) has ranked the California State University, Los Angeles MBA program as one of Los Angeles’ best graduate business programs based on current full-time equivalent student enrollment. The rankings were published in the June 2005 issue of LABJ.

“We are extremely proud that Cal State L.A.’s MBA program continues to be listed among the top ten throughout Los Angeles County,” says Timothy Haight, dean of the College of Business and Economics. “Cal State L.A.’s College of Business and Economics offers the best graduate business value in the Los Angeles region, providing a nationally recognized program that, for decades, has opened professional, social and economic doors for all students.”

Cal State L.A.’s College of Business and Economics equips men and women with intellectual and professional tools for careers in dynamic, global, and multicultural organizations. The College offers undergraduate degrees in accountancy, business administration, computer information systems, and economics and participates in an interdisciplinary graduate program in health care management. Also offered are several minors and credit certificate programs designed for individuals pursuing degrees in other fields. The College offers quality graduate programs in accountancy, economics, health care management, information systems, and the MBA.

Since 1960, the College has been nationally accredited at both undergraduate and graduate levels by the International Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). Of the more than 1,400 colleges and universities in the nation that grant degrees in business and management, only about 400 institutions are accredited with both undergraduate and graduate programs. U.S.News & World Report 2006 “America’s Best Colleges” issue has ranked Cal State L.A.’s business program among the nation’s best undergraduate programs for the seventh year in a row.
