Stanislaus State has created a business analytics concentration within its existing Master of Business Administration program. The two-year program will be offered entirely on the Turlock campus through night courses, starting in the fall 2019 semester. In addition to the seven core courses common to all MBA students at Stan State, master’s candidates with an analytics concentration will take three additional analytics-based courses. The new concentration adds even more value to an MBA program that was recently honored with a national ranking from U.S. News and World Report.
Also, now in its 16th year, Stan State’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program continues to help the area’s low-income and senior citizens feel confident about filing their income taxes. The free program is a partnership between faculty, staff and students from Stan State’s College of Business Administration and Office of Service Learning, the Turlock Salvation Army and the Internal Revenue Service. It’s designed to assist low- to moderate-income families, disabled and elderly people who earned less than $54,000 in 2018. The final clinic is scheduled for Saturday, March 30.
