 Bridge on the Chico State campus.

The MBA program provides students with the knowledge and skills necessary for effective managerial decision-making, the flexibility to pursue a general or moderately specialized business curriculum, and a basis for continued personal and professional growth. Our MBA students work on team projects, solving real-world problems for clients, while refining their soft and hard skills. Through case study, lecture, and project work, students develop a deep understanding of how leading companies analyze, refine, and align the primary business functions to maintain a competitive edge. Students leave our program knowing business fundamentals, ready to use data to make decisions, and apply practical skills to becoming a high-level contributing employee from day one.

Students cite the school's strong regional reputation, an emphasis on the development of team skills, and a curriculum that focuses on developing practical skills as their reasons for choosing to pursue a graduate business degree from CSU, Chico. MBA students can select from three program options to fit their interests. There is a general MBA option (GEN), a MBA with an option in Enterprise Information Systems (EIS), and a MBA with an option in Project Management (PRMG).
