Sandy Johnson
MBA, option in Marketing, 2008

  • Currently working as a management & marketing consultant, specializing in new ventures
  • Cal State L.A. experience:

  • "Taking on leadership roles both in the classroom and on campus was challenging and invigorating. As founding president of the MBA Association, I envisioned an organization that would round out the student experience at Cal State LA. Being in a 'commuter' MBA program can create an atmosphere of isolation; but through the MBA Association, students were able to build foundations of camaraderie and business networking. In addition, I learned the power of working toward a goal, enlisting the right people, channeling their strengths, and making sound use of resources however scarce they may be. The result: the 'undo-able' was done!"
  • "An experience which I highly value was the opportunity to work closely with a group of dedicated students and professors on writing a case. Professors Drost and McGuire guided my teammates and me with commitment, enthusiasm, and expertise. The case won the North American Case Research Association's (NACRA) "Best Student-Authored Case of 2007", and is being considered for publication! Presenting our case at the NACRA conference and discussing it with academicians from all over the US was a truly rewarding experience."

    Why Cal State L.A.?

  • "The best thing about Cal State LA is that my professors knew my name, knew what I was about, and cared that I was actually learning."
  • "You will get an excellent education at an affordable price."
  • "The professors know their stuff; they are accessible and supportive."
  • "The student body is dynamic, talented, driven, dedicated, generous, and smart."
  • "Evening classes, with the option of taking 1, 2 or 3 courses per quarter, was very convenient to my personal schedule."
  • "The campus is small, easily accessible, and has ample parking."
