The David Nazarian College of Business
and Economics Collection consists of the records of the college and previous business
courses offered throughout CSUN's history. Records include correspondence,
accreditation reports, annual reports, press releases, program brochures, event fliers,
student association information, course information, and reports on the economy of
Northridge and the San Fernando Valley.
The Division of Business and Economics was established at the San Fernando Valley campus
of Los Angeles State College in 1956. After the campus separated to become San Fernando
Valley State College, the School of Business Administration and Economics was
established in 1964, with Dr. Paul Blomgren appointed as the first Dean. The school
offered both undergraduate and graduate coursework, and became accredited by the
American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business in 1974. In 2014, the school was
renamed the David Nazarian College of Business and Economics in honor of a donation made
by CSUN alumnus David Nazarian.
