The CSU, Chico Online Experience
A personally attentive, professionally focused educational environment has long been a hallmark of the College of Business, and we are proud to carry that tradition into the CSU, Chico Online MBA program.
The student experience in our Online MBA program is defined by open communication and collaboration, an engaged faculty, and a seamless digital platform that brings our dynamic coursework to you wherever you are in the world. And we back it all up with our team of committed student support professionals who ensure you have access to every resource you need to succeed.
Welcome to Blackboard
Our Online MBA courses are built in and offered through the Blackboard learning management system (LMS). This platform offers ample opportunities to collaborate and network with your online classmates and faculty through in-course message boards and discussion forums, and it presents course videos and content in an easy-to-access, digestible format suited for completing your coursework on your own time.
A practical, user-friendly LMS is key to an outstanding online educational experience, and Blackbaord enables us to offer a program tailored to the specific needs of working professionals.
