Forward Together


We believe that education should not be limited to classrooms alone. The School of Management acknowledges the significance of travel as a tool for transformation and is dedicated to helping students enrich their educational experience by exploring beyond Thousand Oaks. We encourage students to travel and gain a global perspective by broadening their horizons, deepening their cultural understanding, and promoting personal growth. Our goal is to cultivate a sense of global citizenship in our students by fostering exploration, curiosity and preparing them to thrive in an interconnected world.

Business School on Rails

In December, 2023 about 40 graduate and undergraduate students attended, along with the Dean, faculty members John Garcia, Geoffrey Plourde, and Setayesh Sattari, and staff members Rosie Baker, Alejandra Castillo, and Pia Valtierra. We boarded a Metrolink train in Moorpark with the CEO of Metrolink, Darren Kettle. While on the train to Downtown Los Angeles, students learned about Metrolink and public transportation in Los Angeles and had a Q&A. In Downtown LA, we visited the Los Angeles Philharmonic, where students toured the Walt Disney Concert Hall and met with its CFO, Glen Briffa. Then they went to Bank of America for a meeting with Raul Anaya, the National President of Small Business Banking. Finally, after a short trip on Angels Flight and lunch at the Grand Central Market, the students went to Deloitte where they toured the office and engaged in a conversation with senior partners Trent Brown and Shazia Moola.

MPPA Destination Trips

Led by Dr. Sabith Khan, MPPA and MBA students have visited D.C. and Sacramento Policy Institutes, for a deep dive into American policymaking. These immersive programs offer firsthand insights into policy development in both the nation's capital and California's State Capital. Engage with influential institutions like the US Congress and Clearpath in D.C., and explore state-level policymaking dynamics in Sacramento. Under Dr. Khan's guidance, participants gain valuable experience and skills for navigating the complex landscapes of public policy and administration.
