Mission Statement

The Chapman Graduate Business Association (GBA) provides social and philanthropic opportunities for current students. The board works to enhance the student experience and increase the value of their degree.

Member Benefits

Students elect their own leaders to represent them with the faculty and administration and to make decisions based on peer feedback. Every graduate business student is already a member of the association and dues already come out of their tuition. Each student’s dues are spent on events and opportunities to enhance their time here and build relationships.

How To Join

Every graduate student in the Arygros School of Business and Economics is already a member. You just have to be actively enrolled in classes.
