About the College and Department:

The Craig School of Business has come a long way since 1928 when it was established as the Department of Commerce. Today, the Craig School is proud to be recognized for its excellence, taking pride in offering students a wide array of transformative educational and networking opportunities.

The Craig School of Business is the first CSU business school to receive a naming endowment, a $10 million pledge from Sid and Jenny Craig. Sid Craig, an alumnus of the business school, was a successful entrepreneur, even as a student. The entrepreneurial spirit still runs deep within the school. Endowments elevate the business program to new heights, with four endowed chairs, scholarships for incoming and continuing students, and financial support for faculty research.

We prepare a diverse student body in the fast-growing fields of Information Systems and Technology and Data Analytics for Decision-Making to support economic development in the Central Valley and beyond. Producing new intelligence from raw data, collected by computer-based information systems, can help businesses enhance products and services, and organizations to meet their strategic goals. Computer-based data analysis and information-sharing lead to better, more informed decisions. In addition to traditional methods of classroom instruction and guest speakers, students in these options are exposed through hands-on experiences to new developments in computer technology, software, and applications.
