What Our Students Say

Petra Melbinger


Human Resources Specialist
Magna International Europe

"I could not have made any better decision than choosing to participate in the IMBA Program of California Lutheran University because the combination of professional and highly qualified faculty, paired with an interesting, diverse and mind-challenging curriculum and the social experiences I was able to make during my stay in wonderful Southern California have equipped me with the tools and skills needed in today's fast changing and challenging economic landscape. I was able to learn fundamental business, strategic and managerial competencies that have been supplemented with social and interpersonal experiences gained from living, working and studying together with people from all around the world.

"Being part of the wonderful IMBA Program family has helped me from the early days of preparing to move to the USA, during my time being at CLU and the friendships I made last till this day which makes me very proud and grateful. I now have a network of friends and former professors all around the globe. The IMBA Program definitely exceeded my expectations by all means, and let's be honest - spending a year in sunny Southern California is not too bad either!

"The IMBA Program at CLU definitely provided me the necessary skills and competencies to act and operate on an extraordinary business level that is not only appreciated here at Magna but at any other global company."

"CLU's MBA program has been the perfect complement to my already existing degree in Industrial Engineering. It added an economic component to my knowledge base and expanded my experience in collaborating with other international students. Both the courses offered as well as the very professional and knowledgeable professors made my time at CLU highly memorable. CLU's MBA has been a major enabler for me to get my current job as it made my career profile far more complete and thereby interesting, especially for large multinational organizations."

"After studying in Austria, China, and South Korea I sought a new challenge to complete and enhance my academic profile and enlarge my personal outlook. I decided to face this challenge in California Lutheran University's MBA program.

"Not only did I never regret my decision to come to CLU, the whole experience exceeded my expectations by far. The mere fact that I have landed a job in corporate finance with one of the "Big Four" companies, KPMG, right after having graduated is a great testimony to the quality of the MBA program at CLU. Among all the classes I have taken, I would like to point out the exceptional finance classes that are taught by instructors who are both knowledgeable scholars and experienced professionals.

"The whole environment at CLU is a combination of one of the most beautiful places to live at, a family like campus where professors actually know your name, small class sizes, students from all over the world, as well as outstanding academics.

"CLU will provide you with a new edge and shape your profile giving you the possibility to think outside the box and keep up with the fast pace of today's rapidly changing world. Most if not all the companies today want their employees to be internationally educated professionals and CLU definitively is the place to get that."
