California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB) was founded in 1994 and the founding president was Peter Plympton Smith, a former member of the US House of Representatives from the state of Vermont. It is a public university located on Fort Ord, a former US Army base on the Central Coast of California. It is the 21st campus in the California State University System and is accredited by the Western Association Schools and Colleges.
CSUMB offers a host of degree programs which can be taken on-campus or online. The University, however, has a executive MBA program that is conducted 100% online and is designed to give professionals an edge in applying for key management positions. The academic calendar is broken down into quarters and terms start in the months of January, April, July and October of each year.
Admission to the Executive MBA Program will be based on entrance exam scores, GPA, personal statement and work experience, as such admission requirements include (but may not be limited to), copies of transcript of grades from previous schools attended, comprehensive resume outlining leadership and management experience, proof of professional work experience (at least seven years of work, three of which spent at managerial level), and letters of reference. For foreign applicants need to complete a TOEFL exam and have foreign units evaluated to gain the relevant credits.
The tuition fee for the online Executive MBA program can be prepared upon request. Financial aid, in the form of federal and state grants, private scholarships, and student / work loans are available to eligible students. The University’s Financial Aid office would have more information on financial aid application requirements and procedures.
