The program covers a wide range of subjects enabling students to gain a broad education in business-related courses while studying entirely online from the comfort of their home or office. Students learn the fundamental principles of Marketing, Management, Information Systems, Finance, Accounting and Economics as applied in diverse organizational settings. A distinctive characteristic of this Cal State Online business degree is the requirement to take courses developed together with disciplines outside the conventional business curriculum, such as History, Fine Arts, English, Education, Chemistry and Biology. Further, the Capstone Course gives students the opportunity to incorporate their knowledge in a Global Strategy Simulation exercise.

As a Cal State Online Degree Completion Program, students must have 60 or more semester credits (90 quarter units) of transferable courses.
Campus Admissions and Application fees vary by campus. The CSU makes every effort to minimize student costs. Fees in published schedules or student accounts may need increases when public funding is insufficient. Therefore, CSU must reserve the right, even after initial fee payments are made, to increase or modify any listed fees, without notice, until the date when instruction for any particular semester or quarter has begun. All CSU listed fees should be regarded as estimates and subject to change upon approval by The Board of Trustees.
