Sophia Possidon, MBA Online Graduate, Class of 2018

"The Master’s of Business Administration Online program at California State University, San Bernardino was the best learning experience I have ever had. From the responsive and participatory faculty, to the relevant and interesting course curriculums, I learned far more than I expected to. The program format and flow provided for a logical progression of building knowledge that culminated in the final courses. The online format was easy to navigate and the flexibility was perfect for a person like me that has various time constraints. Moreover, the cohort interaction was strong. I have made connections and friendships that I will have for years to come. The live lectures, video office hours and online discussions promoted lively and germane dialogues. Faculty like Dr. Craig Seal, Dr. Mike Stull and Dr.  Bill Donohoo were more than just instructors; they took time to give personalized feedback to each student. I never had any faculty take more than 24 hours to respond to an email or call. This also included the support advisory staff. All my questions were answered in a prompt and thorough manner. If you're looking for an online program the fits your busy life, has people that care about your educational success, challenges your business aptitude, and enhances your career aspirations, this is the real deal. I recommend MBA program at CSUSB."

"Completing the Master of Business Administration Online program at California State University, San Bernardino was an absolute privilege. The convenience of the program is what originally enticed me. The ability to complete the coursework in an online environment should spark an interest to those that either have a demanding work schedule, family life, are outside of the vicinity of the campus or simply want an academic experience that lives within today's current technological landscape. As someone who works in a digital industry, the choice to enroll in this program was an easy one. As I began the process, I was astonished with the assistance the entire MBA team provided. Questions were never left unanswered, and guidance was readily available. Next, the peers I met in the program came from a diverse set of backgrounds and experiences, which ultimately provided an opportunity to not only work with a variety of unique individuals, but also learn positive qualities that are unique as well. Finally, the instructors cultivated a learning environment that was straight-forward, but encouraged students to think outside of the box as they would do in a professional setting. While the program was challenging, it was even more rewarding once complete. I'm fully confident that being a CSUSB MBA graduate will only advance me for current and future successes."

"I was referred to the CSUSB Online MBA program by a friend and former colleague. Although the classes are taught online, there are plenty of opportunities to interact with students and professors through video conferencing and real-time collaboration for group projects; and having a friend in the 'real world' as a fellow student going through the program at the same time has provided an invaluable resource for both of us to help meet our goals. I have benefited from the program content and interaction with the professors and classmates. The program has provided the opportunity to further my knowledge and skills in areas outside of my career focus in the accounting field. More importantly, as a full-time professional and father to two young girls, the program is perfect for those of us who would find it difficult to attend campus-based programs."

"My experience in the Master of Business Administration program at California State University San Bernardino was both very challenging and positive. I chose CSUSB’s Online MBA program because it's my alma mater, where I obtained my BA in Psychology, and because I currently live too far away from the campus. What I liked most about the MBA program was the support that I received from the faculty members. Dr. Vipin Gupta has been very instrumental in smoothing my transition into a new career path. Through this program, I obtained valuable business administrative experience in an internship as a Research Technician at California State University, Stanislaus. In addition, I enjoyed working as a Graduate Assistant for Dr. Craig Seal in his management course in Organizational Theory and Behavior. I cannot express enough how tremendous the Online MBA program at CSUSB has been in helping me create a new career in the business world."

"Dr. Seal opened me up to areas I would not have gone on my own. I was moderately interested in the course when I initially enrolled. Once the course got going, I loved it. I loved the content on many spectrums, such as groupthink, abilene, social and emotional intelligence, early organization management and so forth. The course gave me a sense on how to deal with issues in a professional environment, as well as my personal life. I also appreciated how Dr. Seal gave taped Power point lectures. This allowed him to give sidebar examples that the book didn't provide. Those examples helped me understand the points better. Professor Seal pushed me in directions I would not have gone. Thank you, Dr. Seal, for your patience with me and my family."

“Entering the MBA program in 2013 was one of the best decisions I have made in my life! During the process, I met many new friends and created a close bond with them. The facility who oversee this program are truly genuine individuals who really care about the students and their success. You are not alone and have endless support throughout the entire journey. I completed this program in 18 months and it went by so fast. It has opened so many new doors for me and the rewards are endless.”

“The downturn in the economy in 2007 hit the construction industry especially hard as money was not being spent on building new structures or remodeling existing ones. As the economy improved, I felt that earning an MBA Online from CSUSB would enable me to gain the tools necessary to help my company take advantage of the upcoming growth available in the building industry.

I chose CSUSB because they were one of the few schools in the region whose online program had AACSB accreditation. CSUSB’s MBA program fostered an atmosphere of camaraderie as we had to work together and help each other on some projects where communication was essential. By sharing my ideas and listening to the ideas of my classmates, we were able to find common ground to achieve our common goals.”

"After investigating other options, CSUSB’s MBA for Executives program was obviously the best choice for me. The accelerated format and off-campus location are what made earning my degree possible because my work schedule didn’t allow me to take classes at the Cal State campus. Learning new methodologies and the latest business concepts has made me more effective in my job. If you’re thinking of getting your MBA, I encourage you to check out CSUSB’s MBA for Executives program.”

"In addition to the real-world skills taught in the classroom, one of the things I appreciated most about my CSUSB MBA for Executives program was the diversity of my classmates. We came from a variety of industries and professional backgrounds, so we learned a lot from each other, as well as from our instructors.

I chose CSUSB for my advanced degree because it was a great value, and the courses were offered at times that were convenient for me. Having an MBA has given me a competitive edge in today's tough economy and makes me a more valuable employee.”
