Cal State Fullerton's Small Business Institute, housed in MIhaylo College of Business and Economics, is spotlighted this month on the Small Business Institute Journal website for its long-standing record of serving businesses.

“Your SBI program is among the finest in the nation,” said Michael Harris, president of the Small Business Institute, in an email to Mihaylo Dean Anil Puri. “Please know that Michael [Ames, former program director and emeritus professor of management] and John [Jackson, director of Center for Entrepreneurship/Small Business Institute] have set an example to follow for our members, and the program at CSUF has reached a sustained level of excellence that is not easily matched.”

Teams of business administration students have won national championships ten times and been among the top 10 in the national contest 20 of the last 21 years.
