Academics

It is the purpose of the College of Business Administration to develop in students the people, technical, and managerial competence necessary for successful performance in business, industry, government and education. Our undergraduate programs provide the student with an understanding of the social and economic environment in which we live and with a common body of knowledge to specialize in any business field. In addition, each concentration emphasizes, with additional coursework, specific areas of knowledge useful for the career paths served by that concentration.

Undergraduate/ Graduate Business Programs

Cal Poly Pomona's  graduate business programs offer our students the chance to advance their careers with a number of academic degrees including the Master of Business Administration (MBA) & Master of Science in Business Administration (MSBA).

Accounting is the lifeblood of business. In order to remain competitive, organizations of every size need professionals who can measure economic events, process data into reports as well as communication and interpret results. Equipped with these reports, managers and executives can evaluate the overall health of their organizations and decide how to allocate resources. Today's accounting students not only possess technical knowledge of accounting but have the skills to employ the latest technology and communicate with the highest levels of management in order to achieve organizational objectives. With accounting affecting every part of an organization, it's no wonder that it is often referred to as the "language of business."
