Master of Business Administration
CSU Long Beach provides an AACSB accredited 48-unit MBA Program. Additionally, as one of the few California member-schools in the nation-wide Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC), the MBA program is at the forefront of refining graduate education. There are several MBA Program options available to students including the Self-Paced Evening MBA, the Fully Employed MBA (FEMBA) Program, and the One-Year Accelerated MBA Program. All Programs allow candidates to pursue graduate studies while keeping personal and career commitments.
The Accelerated MBA (AMBA) offers students the opportunity to earn an MBA degree in one year. The program consist of five quarter-like sessions, where students attend classes full-time, Monday through Thursday, and generally complete two to four classes per session. Students go through the intensive-study program in lockstep format and earn an MBA from an AACSB International accredited college. Currently, students are admitted for the fall start date only.
Students services and program administration for the AMBA (class registration, payments, book distribution, etc), are carried out by University College & Extension Services (UCES). Student advising and all other academic functions are managed by the MBA Office in the College of Business Administration. While students are registered for classes through UCES, the degree is awarded by the College of Business Administration.
The Accelerated MBA is a financially self-supported, unsubsidized program that is not funded or supported by state tax revenue. If you are planning to use a Veterans Fee Waiver or any other type of fee waiver, please contact the program coordinator or UCES prior to class registration.
