Business Officer Program Series

The Business Officer Program (BOP) Series is an immersion learning and community-building experience built around a four-series model. It is designed to create connected cohorts of CSUSM administrative professionals across divisions and professional expertise. 

BOP is a knowledge-building experience, with each track adding to your toolbox and preparing you to do business at CSUSM. If you seek unique learning experiences and opportunities to build your understanding of CSUSM business processes and professional network, the BOP series is for you.

Should You Attend?

The training is for CSUSM staff. If you are working in an Administrative Coordinator or Analyst position responsible for business processes related to procurement cards (ProCard) and requisitions, travel, payments, human resources, administration and/or finance, you should attend BOP. Participants include, but are not limited to, people working with areas or business processes related to:

    • Central Administration
    • Academic Units
    • Accounting or Finance
    • Budget or Planning
    • Human Resources
    • Facilities
    • Procurement

What Will You Learn?

BOP content is designed to provide participants with a combination of courses on current policy and processes, practical solutions, and personal development. To provide this broad perspective, each course you take may not be specifically related to your field, but it will give you a foundation for future opportunities. Our objectives are for you to:

    • Gain a broader perspective of CSUSM business administration
    • Be the go-to in your department to process requests from your department to FAS
    • Discuss the latest issues and topics in streamlining processes
    • Learn how other units deal with common issues 
    • Develop professional relationships with colleagues from other units

When and How?

We are taking June and July off for fiscal year-end and will resume BOPS in August. Registration information will be sent out mid-July.

Each series consists of four tracks, administered once per week for four weeks. Participants can complete tracks as needed, but we recommend completing consecutive tracks through completion.
