MBA Courses

Business management requires a knowledge of quantitative and analytical decision-making methodologies for gathering, organizing, analyzing, and evaluating data and information. This MBA Orientation course is designed to provide students with an introduction to the foundational analytical concepts and quantitative methodologies in the areas of finance, accounting, economics, and statistics.

This course is not designed to substitute for the traditional full courses in Accounting, Economics, Finance and Statistics that are part of SSU’s MBA program; it covers the analytical frameworks in these disciplines and supplies an appropriate quantitative preparation essential to ensuring that students are “up-to-speed” and prepared for SSU’s required MBA program courses.

Stay home except for essential needs - Coronavirus COVID-19 Response

SSU Students, Faculty & Staff
In full compliance with California Governor Gavin Newsom’s order just announced this evening requiring all California residents to stay home except for essential needs, Southern States University will immediately convert all administrative offices to operate remotely. This is consistent with classroom instruction already moved to online only effective with the spring quarter as authorized by our accreditor (ACICS), and in the case of international students studying on F-1 visas, by the Department of Homeland Security/Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP).
Please know that even under these unusual and unpredictable circumstances, we are here to support our students, both educationally and personally. SSU faculty and administration can continue to be reached electronically via email, phone or Moodle.
Thank you for joining the State of California and SSU Administration in doing everything possible to keep us safe, while enabling our students to pursue and complete their educational goals.

SSU Classroom Instruction Moving Online Effective Spring Quarter

SSU Students, Faculty & Staff

Consistent with other accredited universities in California, Nevada and throughout the US, Southern States University will be converting all classroom instruction to online modality only effective with the start of Spring Quarter on April 6, 2020 (returning students in April 13, 2020). The current quarter will conclude as planned next week on March 21, 2020.

This action is being taken in response to the coronavirus pandemic in an effort to help contain the spread of the virus. For those students studying on F-1 visas, rest assured that the Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) has issued guidance enabling a full course of study to be delivered entirely online in response to this international health crisis. Your F-1 status will remain active with all classes delivered online.

Should any currently enrolled students need or wish to make arrangements to complete the current quarter remotely, please contact your instructors to make the necessary arrangements.

All SSU offices and services will remain open to serve our students. Our staff can be contacted as usual during business hours, including remotely, to address whatever needs you may have.

Lastly, please observe the precautions we are all being advised to take by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention. Those include frequent hand washing (at least 20 seconds); limit physical contact with others such as handshakes or hugs and avoiding large crowds (including during spring break). For up-to-date information on the coronavirus, please see the C.D.C. website at this link:


Thank you all for doing your part in addressing this international health crisis.
