2021 Free Online Boot Camp for Business Students August 2- August 6

The College of Business, Center for Student Success will be hosting a free, online Summer Business Boot Camp to help prepare students who are transitioning into upper-division business coursework. We specifically invite incoming transfer students and continuing CSULB students enrolled in 300- and 400-level core business classes. 

In Summer 2020, the College of Business, Center for Student Success hosted a free, online Summer Business Boot Camp to help prepare students who are transitioning into upper-division business coursework. We specifically invited incoming transfer students and continuing CSULB students enrolled in 300- and 400-level core business classes. 

We had sixteen (16) different topics (e.g. Financial Accounting Lab, Excel Basics, Financial Calculator, PowerBI Basics, Strategies for Online Learning, Business Research Databases, Tableau, and Writing Basics).  The workshops given were facilitated by faculty and campus professionals such as Sabrina Linda from the Accountancy Department, Andrea Eliassen from the Finance Department, and Dr. Judy Prince from the Office of Counseling and Psychological Services.  The boot camp had a total of 759 participants.  Students who participated in the Financial Accounting Lab and Financial Calculator workshops did better in their ACCT 300A and FIN 300 courses than students who did not.

This summer we will host our 2nd Annual Summer Business Bootcamp and provide the opportunity for students to prepare for their upper-division business coursework.  The boot camp will run from August 2 through August 6 and provide students with 31 different online workshop time options and 16 unique workshop topics. Boot camp workshop topics include Microsoft Excel, PowerBI basics, data analytics and visualization, elements of business writing, financial calculator, time management, narrowing down a research topic, stress management, and others.  Workshop facilitators are experienced and passionate professionals from the AccountancyFinance, and Information Systems, Departments as well as The Learning CenterUniversity Library, and  Counseling and Psychological Services.

All CSULB Business students will receive an email that will direct them to the workshop registration links in early July 2021.
