My name is Matthew and I am currently a part-time MBA student at California State University, Fullerton (CSUF).  My goal is to shed some light on the CSUF MBA program for prospective students.  I searched avidly for a student’s perspective on CSUF’s MBA program while researching schools, but could not find a blog or article sharing a current student’s experiences.  I decided to create this blog to fill my unmet need, and I hope this serves as a helpful insider’s perspective for other prospective CSUF students.  I provide information about the program based on my experiences, and share additional insights about any relevant topics related to MBA programs, education, and career opportunities.

Please share your feedback and insight if you find the blog helpful.  I would love to hear your perspective and get any ideas for future posts you would like to read!

    Matthew,
    I really enjoy reading your posts on CSUF as it’s one of the schools I’m considering to apply to. Following the MBA presentation that took place at the school this evening, it’s sad to know that looks like the school won’t be accepting applications for the program starting spring 2013. It’s apparently another consequence of state funding and budget cuts ! that’s pretty deceiving, but thanks for your insights anyway !

      I’m sorry to hear that CSUF won’t be accepting applications for Spring 2013. That’s definitely disappointing and one of the many challenges the school faces because of the budget cuts. Despite those challenges though, if you really like CSUF I recommend trying to apply for Fall 2013. Good luck with your MBA journey, and please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the MBA program.

    Yeah, in addition to that we were told at the same time that the school is sitting on $45MM cash deposits ! I wonder why they don’t use them to not let future applicants down. They don’t seem very reliable doing online advertising on courses and deadlines that they so certainly know will be closed to students even before they start thinking on applications. Hope that you’re enjoying your summer break and getting ready to start again very soon !

      Well, it’s definitely frustrating the school is seemingly sending mixed messages. If it’s sitting on all that cash but it can’t use it at all to help out students (or prospective students) then why would it bothering mentioning that information during the MBA presentation? The school definitely has it’s fair share of challenges ahead of it, especially considering the budget struggles the state is facing. I just hope that it’s able to get back to “business as usual” soon, and help students like yourself apply for and join the MBA program.
