The undergraduate and graduate programs of the College of Business Administration are accredited by AACSB, Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. AACSB accreditation assures quality and promotes excellence and continuous improvement in undergraduate and graduate education for business administration.

The College of Business Administration provides eight subplans leading to the Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration. It also provides curricula leading to the Master of Business Administration, the Master of Science in Business Administration, and the Master of Science in Accountancy. The Master of Science degree offers a subplan in Information Systems Auditing. Information concerning the master's curricula may be found in the graduate listings.

The undergraduate programs of study give the student an understanding of the social and economic environment in which we live and provide a common body of knowledge for all students who specialize in any business field. In addition, each subplan emphasizes, with additional course-work, specific areas of knowledge useful for the career paths served by that subplan. All students are encouraged to experiment and broaden their interests by selection of electives. It is the purpose of the College of Business Administration to develop in students the people, technical, and managerial competence necessary for successful performance in business, industry, government, and education.

The student assumes primary responsibility for meeting the educational requirements of the program. Through early studies in the Business Administration core courses, the student has an opportunity to evaluate a career decision and to adjust goals, if necessary. Undergraduate courses in business fundamentals and skills equip the student with marketable entry skills. The student may augment on-campus education through job experiences in business senior projects and internship programs for which the student will receive academic credit. General education courses are integrated throughout each program. Co-curricular opportunities related to the course of study include the Cal Poly Society of Accountants; American Marketing Association; American Production and Inventory Control Society; Delta Sigma Pi, a professional business fraternity; Finance Society; Latino Business Students Association; M.B.A. Association; Management Information Systems Student Association; Students with an Interest in the Future of Telecommunication; Personnel and Industrial Relations Association; Pi Sigma Epsilon; American Society for Quality; International Facility Management Association; Society for Advancement of Management; Society of Law and Contracts; World Traders; Alpha Iota Delta, and Mu Kappa Tau, Beta Gamma Sigma, business honorary societies.
