About the Program

In the David Nazarian College of Business and Economics graduate programs, working professionals use their business experience, while incorporating academic rigor, to enhance their knowledge, skills, and abilities. Classes are offered in the evenings and/or on the weekends. The curriculum allows students to explore current trends in the business environment for relevance and added value in practice.

The College offers three master’s degrees: the Master of Business Administration (MBA), the Master of Professional Accountancy (MPAcc) and the Master of Science in Taxation (MST). Its Graduate Certificate in Business Administration (GCBA) is valued independently or as preparation for the CSUN Nazarian MBA.

Nazarian College Graduate Business Programs also provide partial instructional support for the Mike Curb College of Arts, Media, and Communication’s Master of Arts in Music Industry Administration and the College of Health and Human Development’s Graduate Certificate in Health Informatics.

Academic Advisement

General graduate student advisement is provided by the staff in Nazarian College’s Office of Graduate Programs in Business, as well as by the directors and staff in each individual program.


CSUN graduate programs offer students personalized professional guidance from career experts. Students work with career consultants to develop their offline and online profiles for building quality professional networks and to pursue options within their current position or for future career intentions.
