PACIFIC COAST BUSINESS TIMES: CSUCI TO OFFER BUSINESS CLASSES IN SANTA BARBARA

CSU Channel Islands will offer undergraduate classes in business through the Santa Barbara City College Campus, under an agreement that officials from both colleges signed during a Sept. 29 news conference.

The program will begin in fall 2011 with up to 30 students, who will take one or two courses per 12-week term at SBCC, according to a news release from CSUCI. Under the schools’ five-year agreement, CSUCI will oversee academic and administrative aspects of the program and SBCC will provide classroom, office and library space and cooperate in student recruitment.

The agreement is “something I’ve been trying to do for years,” CSUCI President Richard Rush said at the Sept. 29 news conference. He said he expects to develop expanded partnerships with SBCC.

Bill Cordeiro, dean of the Martin V. Smith School of Business at CSUCI, said the school  doesn’t specialize in any aspect of undergraduate business but it has an emphasis on entrepreneurship, global business and management.
