Welcome to the CBA Graduate Programs website, and thank you for taking the time and effort to learn more about our many programs.  First, let me congratulate you on your decision to further your education with a graduate degree.  Deep down, we all know that the attainment of many of our life’s goals can only come about with tremendous effort.  Graduate school is one of those endeavors that requires great personal sacrifice with the realization that the results will change your future, not only for yourself but for your family.  Thus, as you consider any institution, continue to believe in your future and know you have my assurance that this step of information seeking is the absolute correct thing to do. 

Here at CSULB, we offer a variety of programs that will help move your career ahead, enable you to confidently explore new industries for career possibilities, and consider opportunities that you were only vaguely aware of beforehand.  Mostly your time spent in Long Beach will enhance your existing knowledge, learn many new things and build your confidence in your ability to ultimately be successful.  International students can look forward to an immersive experience that will introduce them to American culture and the English language as it is used in the class room and daily life.  Our faculty brings both industry experience and high academic quality to the class room.  In addition, the college now has interactive learning class rooms that feature the latest technology designed to take learning to the next level.

Not only is Long Beach is one of the most diverse cities in the United States, there are many opportunities here to make contacts within a variety of industries such as the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, the aerospace and entertainment industries, and the many businesses that thrive here in the southland.  Students have collaborated with the Aquarium of the Pacific, Sony, other units of the University, and the ports on a variety of projects, adding a practical component to the theory taught in the class room.

Feel free to browse the programs we offer, and if you have would like more information, attend an information session (register here), or email us at  We look forward to seeing you soon! Again, congratulations on the start of the journey that will change your life.

Go Beach!
