The Business Alumni Network is a hub for Cal State LA alumni to network, connect, and engage with fellow alumni in industry. We understand that successful networking is about establishing meaningful relationships to help each other achieve goals. We exist to cultivate those connections through value-focused platforms that promote advancement through social mixers, mentoring, workshops, and peer-hiring opportunities. We welcome alumni from diverse academic backgrounds to join us in redefining what it means to be a graduate of Cal State LA in our professional communities.
