San Diego was recently picked by "Fortune" magazine as one of the World's Top 50 Cities for International Business.

The mission of SDSU's College of Business Administration is to create a learning environment that fosters excellence in business education through innovative programs, applied learning, research and collaboration with the community.

The Dean of the College is Gail K. Naughton, PhD, a noted biotechechnology entrepreneur and founder, director and formerly President of Advanced Tissue Sciences, Inc. of La Jolla, California.

In June 2008, SDSU received a $10 million gift to name the university's nationally recognized school of accountancy the Charles W. Lamden School of Accountancy. This gift, among the largest in university history, was made by Gertrude Lamden in honor of her late husband, Dr. Charles Lamden, who was instrumental in launching SDSU's College of Business Administration.
