Greetings Future and Current MBA Students!

As a CSUSB graduate and current MBA student, I am excited to help you with any questions you may have.

I am happy to be your first point of contact in the MBA office. Since I received my undergraduate degree at CSUSB, I am familiar with the campus, its resources, and processes. I can help you schedule appointments, find the correct paperwork, or direct you to further resources. 

In addition to the MBA office coordination, I run the Student Ambassador program. The MBA Student Ambassadors are an elite team of selected MBA students. These students, plan events, engage in the university and the outside community. If you are interested in the program or getting into contact with our Student Ambassadors, I am happy to connect you.

Please let me know if you need help or have any questions, I am here to help you be successful and productive during your time in the MBA program.
