“I have found the approach that Chico State takes with the Online MBA beneficial in many areas, the most important of which is the simulations offered in most of the classes. These teach theory and allow you to put that theory into action against other students’ ideas in ways that are competitive yet enhance the whole class knowledge base. The professors genuinely care about your success and are always available to help. I have been extremely happy with my choice to pursue my MBA here.”

Allie Vassar, MBA ‘22 Candidate

“I wanted to get my MBA but was hesitant because it would involve time away from my family. When Chico State started the Online MBA program, I knew that was the way to go. The best part about the online program is that the courses are accelerated. Each course also allows autonomy, which is great when you’re balancing work, school, family, and a social life. It was the best decision for me and my family.”

Eric Vonrhein MBA ‘22 Candidate

“Conflict Resolution, Negotiation and Leadership was an amazing class—by far the most important class I have ever taken. The negotiation skills I gained will impact my future career. Exercising, controlling my self-talk, and accepting that change is around the corner have already made me far less stressed at work and more productive. This class was transformative; it gives MBA students such a supreme advantage in life. I will be thinking back to this class and what I gained from it for a very, very long time.”
