The Graduate Certificate in Business Administration has been suspended as of Fall 2022.
The Nazarian College Graduate Certificate in Business Administration (GCBA) program enables holders of bachelor’s or graduate degrees in fields other than business to pursue a career change or advancement in the area of business management. It also provides an opportunity to experience Master of Business Administration (MBA)-level coursework without committing to an MBA program. For those who later decide to pursue an MBA, the GCBA curriculum provides excellent preparation for that degree. In particular, the GCBA covers the foundation courses of CSUN’s Nazarian College MBA program.
About the Program’s Cohort Format
Participants proceed through the program in a cohort (group) format, which means that all successful applicants in a given term will begin their course of study at the same time and move together with their cohort through the designated course sequence. Since all participants in a cohort take the same classes in sequence, the knowledge gained in one course can be built upon in those that follow. Cohort participants share a familiar, supportive, ongoing learning community and also enjoy the opportunity of networking together as a cohesive group with common career goals and life experiences.
