MBA & Master’s Guide 2022: California State University, Northridge – David Nazarian College of Business and Economics


The MBA program at CSUN’s David Nazarian College of Business and Economics takes pride in its students and alumni. Nazarian MBA students are accomplished professionals representing incredibly diverse backgrounds in a variety of industries in the San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles County and Ventura County regions. Graduate students view their MBA as a smart investment and have the desire to understand the business environment better and offer innovative insights.



Classes are held Monday through Thursday from 7:00 – 10:00 p.m., and occasional Saturdays. Students typically take two courses per semester and complete MBA coursework in about 2.5 years. Some courses are offered as “HyFlex,” providing the utmost flexibility for students who are traveling for work or have a family obligation. This class modality means that students can attend a class by video conference when these responsibilities prevent attending a class in-person. Students reduce or accelerate their academic load commensurate with career and family demands. Elective offerings focus on providing timely and relevant topics that help differentiate a student in their workplace and add career value.



Nazarian College MBA students not only learn, but they also pay that knowledge forward by helping businesses as part of the culminating experience in the Nazarian College Small Business Consulting Program. Through continued support from the Wells Fargo Foundation, MBA student teams consult with and address specific needs of small businesses and non-profits in the region. As a result, students gain confidence and greater connections, paying their investment forward to the community.



Nazarian College MBA consulting teams are recognized as producing quality, top-tier projects. Two teams were recently awarded first place in the 2022 Small Business Institute Project of the Year competition.
• Graduate Specialized category for marketing: Working with the client, Kent Toussaint at Teen Therapy Center, the student team included Amaris Miller, Kenny Pineda, Richard Klein, Wendy Medina, and Oluwaseun “Sheun” Ukpong – advised by Dr. Mariam Beruchashvili.
• Graduate Feasibility/Business Plan category: Working conceptually on technical assistance opportunities in the valley with CSUN alumna Maral Farsi, the student team included Jason Cascio, Hannah Labra, Thomas Lee, Kirsten Mosesson, and Anna Russell – advised by Dr. Kristen Walker.


Recently ranked No. 18 “Best California MBA Schools and Programs,” by University HQ and a Princeton Review “Best On-Campus MBA.” CSUN ranks No. 6 among the “most transformative colleges” in the nation, by Money Magazine and The Wall Street Journal ranks it among the top three universities nationwide for diversity. Few MBA programs can equal CSUN Nazarian in graduating MBAs prepared to work and lead in a diverse and global business environment.
Housed on a beautiful 365-acre campus, CSUN is the fourth-largest university in California. Its 340,000 alumni include prominent business leaders, such as the man for whom the business college was named, David Nazarian. The university is home to the award-winning Younes and Soraya Nazarian Center for the Performing Arts and the LEED Gold-certified Student Recreation Center.
