Orfalea College of Business (OCOB)

We are becoming the indisputable leader in experiential business education.

The Orfalea College of Business has always been a pioneer in cultivating experiential learning, student development and career readiness for the next generation of business leaders.

On our journey to become the indisputable leader in experiential business education, we will cultivate our students' transformations into career-ready problem solvers and socially-conscious business leaders through hands-on discovery and application. We will position ourselves at the forefront of business and technology trends, and supplement our polytechnic curriculum with cultural and social service experiences. With expanded facilities and high-quality faculty, we will find more ways to equip students with the technical and interpersonal skills necessary to change business for the better. We will guide them every step of the way with career mentorship, diverse and inclusive learning environments, and a multitude of industry connections.
