The main purpose of the degree program at Mihaylo College of Business and Economics (MCBE) at California State, Fullerton is to provide you with the knowledge and skills that prepare you for a successful career in business. In order to assist us in achieving this goal, we will use a number of assessment tools to track your progress throughout the MCBE curriculum. Please expect to participate in MCBE assessment activities in several of your courses while at MCBE. As you do so, you will assist us in identifying our program’s strengths and weaknesses as well as areas for potential improvement. In other words, you are making an important investment in the value of your degree.
Marketing professionals may create a portfolio of accomplishments showcasing their unique abilities and talents. In a highly competitive marketplace, the portfolio enables them distinguish themselves by providing tangible evidence of their value to potential employers.
Mihaylo students seeking a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration with an emphasis in Marketing are required to submit a personal Marketing Portfolio to their MKTG 489 instructor when they take that course.
A complete Marketing Portfolio will consist of a Cover Page, Table of Contents, Generic Cover Letter, Current Resume, a Lynda.com Certificate, three Executive Summaries describing an academic (from any course completed), business, or volunteering projects of your choice. Individual or group work may be used to create an executive summary. You can access Lynda.com by signing in to your CSUF student portal and choosing the Lynda.com icon.
