"The CSUSM Mentoring Program provided me a great way to establish a real-world connection with a Supply Chain Management student and the academic environment. In the course of our phone, email and lunch interactions, my mentee and I discussed and sorted out graduate school vs. work concerns and small vs. large business experience trade-offs. I found providing industry insights upon request worked well, especially in our many talks about academic projects, professional society membership and networking, and career preparation challenges; for example: resume preparation/review and positioning for internships."

"I feel very satisfied to have taken the Global Supply Chain Management track at CSU San Marcos. It is a great option, as they have an experienced staff that give you hands-on experience on this relatively new, very important, and fast growing field. In addition, they offer excellent networking opportunities through the Global Supply Chain Management Society, which constantly connects students with experienced professionals on the field who share their success stories, as well as connecting students with employers in the field. Furthermore, CSU San Marcos offers a highly personalized education with top of the line infrastructure and technology, which makes it a great learning environment."

"Choosing Global Supply Chain Management as my emphasis in the Business Administration program while enrolled at CSUSM was one of the best personal and professional choices that I've ever made. The GSCM option exposed me to global business while teaching me the technical skills to be highly effective in a dynamic and fast-paced work environment. Within a semester of choosing the option I realized how much potential there is in this field. Learning the skills necessary to make a company more efficient while reducing costs is something that only the GSCM program offers."

"My experience as a student in the Global Supply Chain Management undergraduate program at California State University San Marcos is one I will never forget. While the coursework was demanding and topics covered were extensive, I found the professors in this program truly believe in their students. The educational benefit from this program has been extremely impactful in not only my career, but in how I understand business today."
