The Entrepreneurship program is housed in the Jack H. Brown College of Business and Public Administration, a $26-million building completed in 1994. Named for Jack H. Brown, CEO of Stater Bros. Markets who built a small family owned grocery store operation to a Fortune 500 company that is the largest privately-owned supermarket chain in California. The JHBC is fully accredited by the AACSB and NASPAA and is one of the leading business schools in Southern California. The mission of the college is as an applied business program plays a key role in developing an educated and entrepreneurial workforce that in turn enables the community to attract and keep quality jobs in the region. Providing over 17 concentrations in both undergraduate and graduate degree programs, with campuses in San Bernardino and Palm Desert, the JHBC has produced over 13,000 graduates--the majority of whom live and work in the growing and booming economy of Southern California.

The CSUSB Entrepreneurship program maintains its own state of the art, dedicated classroom for entrepreneurship students.

More Than a Degree...


We live in a world characterized by diversity and change. At the Jack H. Brown College of Business and Public Administration, we acknowledge those differences in gender, race, ethnicity, country of origin, socioeconomic background, ability, political view, sexuality, and thought. Those differences are our strength if we create an environment where everyone is offered the conditions where they can reach their potential and contribute their best to society.

It is important for all members and stakeholders of the JHBC community to feel connected and welcomed. The JHBC Office of Academic Equity (OAE) is part of the institutional framework of the college to make it more equitable and inclusive. This office analyzes the past, questions the present and strategizes to shape the future to develop an environment where all individuals flourish.

In its 5th year, the OAE leverages diversity among students, staff, faculty, and our communities to enhance work relationships between colleagues, increase learning opportunities for students, drive greater productivity and performance, and create positive social impact. As we continue to fiercely embrace both individuality and community, we will continue to generate new ideas in our already rich environment. Diversity of people and ideas will strengthen the who we are as a college and push us towards a more just and successful future.

I look forward to continuing the work the OAE has been doing towards a promising future where everyone has access to the opportunities to become their best selves.
