The mission of the College of Business and Public Policy is to educate the leaders who shape the future. This is accomplished by providing an opportunity to acquire a nationally accredited professional education for a successful career.  Our primary focus and commitment is to excellence in teaching by engaging our students in a personal, supportive learning environment.  Each CBAPP concentration was designed to provide students with both theoretical and applied bodies of knowledge regarding business or public management and administration.

The CBAPP faculty fulfils this mission by providing a multidisciplinary, interactive student-centered education that calls upon the contributions of a full range of academic disciplines while challenging students to apply their academic work to a variety of management settings.  All of our courses emphasize interactive and hands on learning. The undergraduate curriculum prepares students for entry level professional positions and develops life long learning skills needed to grow, progress, and succeed in their professional lives. Our graduate programs help students develop the skills, capabilities, and opportunities necessary to assume positions as general managers. General management positions typically lead to career mobility and include significant decision making responsibility. Our students learn to manage technology, customers, employees, and financial assets.

This excellent learning environment demands a high standard of faculty scholarship and research. Each of our faculty has significant industry and practical experience. Through research, applied research, and consulting they stay on the leading edge of scholarship and practice.  We are proud of our faculty, their academic preparation, and the quality of their experience. We believe our faculty’s blend of education and work experience offers our students a rich learning experience unique in Los Angeles and the South Bay.
