On the Rise: The Campaign for Sacramento State, is supporting the College of Business Administration as it seeks funding to advance these strategic objectives:

Campaign Priorities

Student Success through Scholarship

  • Double the number of scholarships awarded to our business students, which would provide tuition assistance to a greater number of CBA students.
  • Increase scholarship funding by raising $6 million, thereby giving a transformative, business education to more students, especially those from underserved communities.

Endowed Professorship in Finance / Accountancy / Real Estate

  • Secure the first endowed professorship in the CBA to enhance the recruit and retention of the highest-quality educators in the nation and world. 
  • Update CBA technology to provide our students with extensive experience and a keen focus on mastering business analytics and data visualization.

Center for Small Business (CSB)

  • Expand classroom-community partnerships that connect student teams with small businesses and entrepreneurs. The students provide the businesses with critical analysis and technical management assistance needed to start, stabilize, and grow their companies. At the same time, Sacramento State students will gain valuable hands-on learning experiences that can advance their careers quickly after graduation.
  • Seek programmatic endowments to open up more opportunities for partnerships with local businesses, provide more practical experiences for CBA students, and bring new workshops on campus hosted by CSB—one of the oldest and largest centers of its kind in the United States.
