Mihaylo College of Business – California State University, Fullerton
The Mihaylo College of Business and Economics at California State University, Fullerton was founded in 1963 and has been offering MBA degrees since its inception. The largest accredited business school in California, Mihaylo received accreditation in business administration from the Association for the Advancement of Collegiate Schools of Business in 1965 and in accounting in 1997. Mihaylo offers MBA, MA and MS programs, including online programs and programs for working professionals. The college is named for Steven G. Mihaylo, a 1969 Cal State Fullerton graduate turned successful businessman who has made significant contributions to the university.
The Mihaylo College is housed largely in Steven G. Mihaylo Hall on the main Cal State Fullerton campus in northeast Fullerton, CA. As is true of much of Orange County, the area that now houses the Cal State Fullerton campus was once home to acres of citrus groves. Also once known for its tasty orange fruit is Irvine, a city about 20 miles south of the main Fullerton campus, which houses a satellite campus where fully employed professionals take Mihaylo MBA classes. Cal State Fullerton also has satellite campuses in Santa Ana and Garden Grove.
Public transportation around campus and the greater Fullerton area is possible via the Orange County Transportation Authority, which utilizes buses and trains. The main campus is located just over 35 miles from the Los Angeles International Airport.
After four years of construction, Mihaylo Hall was completed in 2008. The three dramatically modern buildings that comprise Mihaylo are considered the “gateway” to the CSUF campus. Mihaylo Hall is home to the school’s graduate and undergraduate business and economics programs.
Mihaylo Hall provides faculty and administrative offices, a 250-seat lecture hall, more than 30 classrooms, interactive technology labs and 10,000 square feet of collaborative working space for students.
Fully employed MBA students enjoy Cal State Fullerton’s palm tree-studded Irvine campus, which packs a library, bookstore and fitness center as well as classrooms and offices into the 78,000-square-foot modern building that comprises the campus.
Students at Mihaylo College learn from more than 150 full-time doctorate-level educators, as well as from 65 private-sector, part-time educators — giving students an education rooted in both academic excellence and real-world experience.
About 25 full-time master’s students generally study at Mihaylo with nearly 300 part-time students. A diverse student population attends Mihaylo, representing nearly 70 countries worldwide. Ages of students in the program are quite diverse, as well, with students from 21 to 65 attending class.
