Congratulations on Your Admission to the Stan State MBA Programs

We are thrilled to welcome you to the Stan State MBA family and are excited to embark on this educational journey with you.  The New Student Orientation is an opportunity for you to maximize your MBA and gain a comprehensive understanding of our programs’ expectations, resources, and support networks.

At Stanislaus State, we recognize the distinct needs of our Evening MBA and Online MBA students, and we are committed to equipping you with everything you need to thrive academically.  That’s why we have carefully developed a virtual New Student Orientation to facilitate a seamless transition into the program and support you throughout your academic journey.  This orientation is designed to provide you with comprehensive information about the curriculum, course registration, student portal capabilities, and the wide range of support services at your disposal. Don’t pass up this invaluable opportunity to familiarize yourself with the program, get your questions answered, and set yourself up for success.

We look forward to seeing you at a session.  If you have any questions or need further assistance, please feel free to reach out to the MBA Director, Gina Donahue, at gdonahue@csustan.eduor MBA Program Coordinator Mary Pires at

Congratulations once again and let the exciting journey towards your MBA begin!
