California State University - Fresno Reviews

35 reviews
After reviewing the syllabus for every course, it was daunting to realize how much reading would be involved for just one class. Normally in undergrad, the assigned readings were not very engaging and left students bored, dreading the moment they had to open the book. With the MBA program, that is not the case. I have learned so much about leadership, law, ethics, water, and myself in the first few months. I am very excited for the academic journey ahead!

I enjoyed my experience and the opportunities that was offered at Fresno State. Its quiet atmosphere was refreshing after living in the city for over 20 years. The school itself had a lot of resources available to low income students and affordable housing for students who have to relocate to Central California. My only recommendation is to update some of the building as they do look a bit on the older side. Overall, great school!
Transitioning from an in-person to online learning environment is not an easy task. However, the faculty as California State University - Fresno, have done a superb job at making sure students still get the same quality education. Teachers are more than willing to schedule additional office hours, answer questions about class and everything going on, and just listen.

Fresno State's MBA professors are second to none providing a learning experience that extends well beyond the textbook. Professors are constantly having their students apply concepts and think critically to prepare them for the real world.
