We take our regional stewardship very seriously. For our online degree completion program, our whole intent was to reach out to those working adults that can’t get to campus. We shifted time and place, and it has been growing. We try to fill needs in the market, and that’s what we are about as we expand our program portfolio. We are globalized, and that makes us a preferred place for employers to hire. We are continuing to revise and update what we are doing. We are getting ready to launch an M.S. in accounting.

Dean Swartz on her goals for CSUEB College of Business

  • June 25, 2012 5:00am

Terri Swartz, dean of CSUEB's College of Business and Economics, answered questions for a student reporter at the San Francisco Business Times, who interviewed deans of Bay Area university business schools  to learn how they hope to reshape their institutions in the coming years.

When asked to share her goals for CBE, Swartz replied, “We have worked to bring more experiential learning into the classroom. We have more and more outreach with the business community, providing opportunities to get help and insight that they might not have readily available. We do outreach for businesses, both for-profit and not-for-profit. We work with all different sizes and entities. We match up their project needs with ours. Create win-wins where companies get consulting projects, and our students get the opportunity to apply their knowledge. It helps move the economic engine forward in the Bay Area.”
