MBA Student Ambassadors are responsible for supporting prospective, new and current students, their families, guests, alumni, business partners and friends of the college and university. Additionally, by assisting at MBA Program events, providing campus tours and interacting with students through e-mail, social media, and promote the image of the Jack H.

Ambassadors are highly visible members of the MBA Program Team helping build a strong graduate student community across CSUSB and strength ties between the MBA Program and students.

MBA Student Ambassadors are students who have demonstrated a high potential for academic success, community service, fostering diversity, and leadership.
