Responsible Business

CSUMB's College of Business is the only one of its kind in the world to teach Responsible Business and the Quintuple Bottom Line (QBL) as core concepts. The QBL goes beyond the traditional triple bottom line of profit, people, and planet by incorporating ethics and equity into business and everyday decision-making.

Why Our College Stands Out

Students choose to learn business at CSUMB because of our college’s dedication to ethics and equity, making it stand out above any other business program in the world. Students also love the incorporation of service learning and have found that volunteering and making an impact in the community strengthens their passion for equitable business.

Our small class sizes allow students to connect one-on-one with their professors, who are deeply invested in their students’ success. The capstone project provides students with hands-on experience as they collaborate with their teammates to create professional presentations, and all of our students gain real-world experience through internships. As a result, our students are often hired in full-time positions before or immediately after graduation.
