Faculty Connection at Chico State

Direct connection with our MBA students is a top priority for the College of Business faculty at Chico State.

To fulfill this mission for our online students, all faculty members are available for one-on-one meetings during virtual office hours in every Online MBA course they teach. And to foster a collaborative atmosphere like the one our on-campus MBA students enjoy, each online faculty member will hold optional weekly live courses and include a group project in nearly every class.
