            Personal Attentioni and Beautiful Facilities

            I transferred to CLU from New York University, and it was the best decision I could have made for myself. Cal Lu is filled with caring, academia-driven faculty who push you to do your best. The facilities are impeccable, and the campus is growing all the time.

            1987-1990, Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.)

            An innovative education experience second to none!

            At first, I transferred from Pepperdine University to Cal Lutheran because I could not afford both the tuition and purchase of a replacement car. I thought I was stepping down a notch due to my limited finances. How wrong I was! My experience was nothing short of wonderful. I had to take more classes and pick a major, as Pepperdine's requirements to complete my MBA were not as demanding. I was lucky to be a part of the new export class, a class that was the first US Department of Commerce sanctioned trade mission to Asia. I found the Services Marketing class to be exceptional. I open the text book frequently, 20 years later, as a resource when forming a new department or company. Your investment of time and tuition will be returned many times, should you select Cal Lutheran.
