About Our Students

We provide a variety of services to connect you with students and the campus community. The College of Business and Economics has one of the most driven and ready-to-work student body in southern California.  We have a distinct advantage, that our diverse student population mirrors the global business environment.  Since the majority of our undergraduates and graduates are working while they earn their degree, our students are experienced, hard-working multi-taskers who are ready to work, and ready to lead. As a college, we are committed to delivering high-quality, accessible and affordable undergraduate programs. Here are some key areas of our student focus:

  • Interpersonal, team work, leadership and communications skills
  • Critical thinking, analytical and problem solving skills
  • Functional knowledge and technical skills
  • Intellectual curiosity that promotes lifelong learning



There are several ways to recruit with us.  We host various events throughout the year to accommodate the needs of the recruiting employers.  Below are the types you can choose from, but if you need a more custom- tailored event, we can accommodate ways to help you recruit.  We would welcome the opportunity to work with you to fulfill your hiring needs.

Internships for credit

California State University, Los Angeles partners with companies to help facilitate opportunities for students in internships.  When employers request academic credit for their internships,  they must comply with a mandated policy from the CSU system, Executive Order 1064. Under this order, companies are mandated to submit general liability insurance, surveys and a contract with signature, so a student can register for the academic course of which they will be interning.  The process can take a minimum of 2-4 weeks.
