California State University, Chico’s College of Business and Regional & Continuing Education, in partnership with Shasta College, have announced that enrollment is open now through the month of August for spring semester business classes in Redding starting in January. 

New this academic year, the partnership will offer the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration Management degree option in Redding. The eight-course (24 unit) management option, along with a nine-course (27 unit) business core, provides the background, knowledge and skills needed to become a successful manager of a business or organization.

From analysis of system dynamics to corporate social responsibility, the program will prepare graduates for a variety of rewarding careers in personnel management, production management, retail management, operations management, government and non-profit administration, as well as launching entrepreneurial ventures.

The management degree is designed as a degree completion program in which students take lower-division coursework at a community college and then complete their upper-division classes through CSU, Chico.

To complete the degree option in management, students in the Redding area have access to the freshman and sophomore-level core business classes through Shasta College and junior and senior-level management courses offered at the downtown University Center in Redding.

“The College of Business is proud to have partnered with Shasta College for more than 20 years,” said professor Jim Sager, CSU, Chico College of Business Redding program coordinator. “We are happy to continue that tradition by offering the AACSB-accredited management degree program in Redding. We encourage students to talk to their academic advisors and contact us at the Redding Center so we can assist them in their degree and career pursuits.”

CSU, Chico’s College of Business is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International), which affirms the college as a leader in teaching excellence and student job readiness.

Students interested in business options other than management can complete the nine-course business core in Redding and then complete the remaining option courses on the main campus.  Business degree options include accounting, finance, human resource management, marketing, project management, information systems, operations and supply chain management and entrepreneurship and small business management.

Individuals who are interested in CSU, Chico degree programming at the University Center and through Chico Distance & Online Education should contact the Redding coordinator, Dan Greaney, at dgreaney@csuchico.edu, or by calling 530-339-3652.
