Gain Real-World Experience With Online Convenience

The College of Business at CSUMB integrates experiential learning into nearly every facet of online learning platform of the Online MBA program by encouraging students to put business principles into action by practicing with simulations and tackling realistic, modern scenarios. Some projects include:

  • Balanced Scorecard: As part of the Business Simulation Game, manage an organization and integrate the major functional areas of operations, finance, human resources, and marketing management into a cohesive strategic business plan using the “Balanced Scorecard” approach
  • Doing Business in World Regions: A faculty-supervised project to enhance global awareness and cultural sensitivity by applying acquired business knowledge to an international responsible business issue, with the goal of increasing global awareness, cultural sensitivity, and ethical reasoning
