The College of Business Administration is a teaching-learning community of scholars that academically and professionally prepares a diverse student body to excel in a dynamic global environment. We seek to become the College of Choice for business students in Southern California by providing high quality learning and research environment with a global perspective and contributing to regional economic development. Basic Facts & Figures The College of Business Administration (CBA) is one of the seven colleges of California State University, Long Beach (CSULB). As the largest single-campus of the California State University system, CSULB is a comprehensive, four-year institution that was established as the Los Angeles-Orange County State College in 1949 to serve the areas of Orange County and southeastern Los Angeles County. Business studies at California State University, Long Beach began in 1949 with 24 business students and four faculty members, accounting for one-seventh of the campus population. Business administration was part of the Social Science Division from its inception until 1957, when the division was renamed Division of Business and Social Sciences. In 1958, the two academic areas split and Business Administration became a division in its own right, with Dr. S. Austen Reep as founding dean. By the mid-1960s, the business school had close to 3,800 business students, 29 full-time faculty members, and 13 part-time lecturers. Today, the College of Business Administration is home to nearly 5,000 business majors, including about 400 graduate students and 140 full-time-equivalent faculty and staff. Read less
