BEST UNIVERSITY TO STUDY AT

While studying at California State University I am getting a chance to meet the new all-round professionals of the digital environment - people capable of founding a company, holding positions in digital companies or undertaking the digital transformation of a traditional company. An application was filled by me in order to take admission in the university.


Course Curriculum - 

This Business Administration course is preparing me for a career in business and social enterprise and government sector where management, ethics, technology, critical thinking, and communication skills are essential. The goal of this curriculum is to graduate with not just a solid foundation in business knowledge and skills, but also with the behavioral attributes that will provide me a competitive advantage either in my chosen career path or graduate school.
