Cal State Fullerton Names New MBA Director

Van Muse

Cal State Fullerton’s Mihaylo College of Business and Economics has hired Van Muse as the new director to oversee its M.B.A. program.

Muse, of Yorba Linda, is charged with expanding the college’s offerings from part-time graduate-level business programs to serve the needs of working professionals to include a full-time degree program.

Cal State Fullerton currently enrolls 466 students majoring in its M.B.A. programs, including an accelerated program held at the Cal State Fullerton Irvine Campus. In addition, 227 are working toward master of science degrees in information systems, taxation, accountancy and information technology (online). Another 30 students are pursuing a master of arts in economics.

“It’s working the full gamut of developing the program, including recruitment, service to students and developing business connections toward internships and future jobs for our alums,” said Muse, who previously served as dean of academic affairs for the Art Institute of California in Hollywood and dean of instruction at Kalamazoo Valley Community College.

In addition to the Art Institute, Muse was director of the Center for New Media at Kalamazoo and director of publications and the web for Olivet College, also in Michigan.

Muse holds a doctorate of education in higher education administration from Auburn University.
