In August, Money magazine ranked Cal State Fullerton’s College of Business and Economics ninth on its list of Best Colleges for Business Majors. The university as a whole was ranked in the top 5% of universities.
The college was the highest ranked in Southern California, second only to San Jose State University in the Golden State and third highest in the U.S. west of the Rocky Mountains.
But that wasn’t the only area where CSUF ranked high on Money’s new listings, which synthesize financial value, diversity and outcomes to look at the best college opportunities for today’s students.
Overall, Cal State Fullerton is in the top 5% nationally – 34th out of 739 colleges – for a combination of average graduation in 4.9 years, low student debt loads and high levels of financial aid, and a world-class education, coupled with robust alumni wages. Among public universities, the university is 22nd nationally.
Once out of college, CSUF business Titans make an average of $49,700, and the low student debt loads combine to make this figure higher, in real terms, than most business colleges across the country.
Cal State Fullerton’s ranking as 13th among the most transformative colleges is a testament to the high levels of diversity across every metric at the business college specifically and the university generally, as well as a majority first-generation student population.
