Hear from CSUMB’s 2018 Outstanding MBA Graduate Patrick Recinto about the unique benefits of the online program.
“I liked how the classes were broken up into cohorts, which allowed us to collaborate and learn from each other throughout the entirety of the program,” he said, adding that “the cohort size was just the right size for strong yet sufficient discussion.”
From enrollment to graduation, students will be fully immersed in our innovative and engaging online learning platform, thus equipping them with tools to measure their progress and track their achievements. Throughout the program, you’ll have the chance to grow your professional network in a collaborative learning environment with a tightly knit cohort of diverse peers. With classmates from multiple occupational backgrounds helping to expand your knowledge and challenge your understanding of how business functions across different industries, you’ll build the confidence to make strong business decisions as you form your own career path.
We strive to shape competitive and responsible business leaders of the future by encouraging students to put business principles into action by practicing with simulations and tackling realistic, modern scenarios.
A crucial part of shaping future leaders is supporting them in their journey.
