elcome to the inaugural Annual Report of the CSUMB College of Business (COB). I am delighted to share the many accomplishments of the COB over the 2016-2017 academic year. It has been a year of continuing to strengthen our redefined academic mission of promoting the success of our ethnically diverse student body by facilitating engaged learning involving real-world challenges, conducting practice-based research and collaborating with community and regional partners inspired by the practice of Responsible Business (People, Ethics, Equity, Planet and Profit).
A transformational achievement of the academic year was the approval of our Initial Eligibility Application by the prestigious Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). AACSB is the international accrediting body for schools and colleges of business. Application approval launches us into the 5 year process of obtaining the accreditation possessed by only 5% of business schools worldwide. The COB has moved forward significantly through the integration of responsible business and global perspectives in all its programs; by continuing to revise its undergraduate and graduate business programs in line with its redefined mission; by the outstanding research performance of its faculty in publishing in top-ranked peer-reviewed journals; and through its exemplary student and community focused events and programs such as Greater Vision, the Ethics and Responsible Business Forum, the Sustainable Hospitality Development Symposium and the many programs of the Institute of Innovation and Economic Development (iiED) such as Startup Hackathon, Startup Weekend and Startup Challenge. I invite you to join us in reviewing and celebrating the successes of our students, faculty, donors and community members by reading this report. Shyam Kamath, Ph.D. Dean

On February 23rd, visionaries, public officials, public policy experts, hospitality and tourism professionals, developers and contractors, some of whom are pictured here, gathered for the first ever Sustainable Hospitality Development Symposium, hosted by the Sustainable Hospitality Management program in the College of Business at California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB). The event was held at the InterContinental – The Clement Monterey.
Eduardo M. Ochoa, President of Cal State University, Monterey Bay
Plans are underway to continue the sustainable hospitality development conversation with leaders in Costa Rica. Dean Shyam Kamath says the hope is to bring a group of community and business leaders from Monterey County to Costa Rica to host a symposium there to brainstorm and further discuss opportunities in eco-tourism and sustainable hospitality. csumb.edu/green
Anna Caballero, California State Assembly Member
This innovative, one day symposium brought together leaders from California and Costa Rica to discuss opportunities and ideas on the topic of sustainability in the Monterey Bay region. Hospitality, tourism, education and political stakeholders and decision makers came together to delve into this increasingly important topic, for both our region and across the globe.
Shyam Kamath, CSUMB College of Business Dean
The goal is to shape the future of the Monterey Bay region as the leading sustainable hospitality, eco-tourism and eco-recreation region in the country.
Highlights of the day included a keynote address from former Costa Rican president, José María Figueres Olsen, detailing the successful sustainability initiatives in his country, and Aramark’s Director of Sustainability and Engineering, Allison Gosselin. Together, we explored how to leverage the Costa Rican and local experience in framing a sustainability culture and fostering opportunities for the sustainable development of the hospitality industry and ecotourism in the Monterey Bay region.

A TASTE OF ITALY Summer Study in Urbino
ollowing the Spring 2017 semester, a group of 15 students traveled to Italy with Associate Professor, Dr. Dante Di Gregorio, for a two week study abroad experience. The College of Business created the program in partnership with the University of Urbino Carlo Bo, a leading Italian university founded in 1506.
Preparatory class sessions held on campus introduced students to business in the context of Italy. Students learned about the Italian business environment, studied cases of Italian firms, as well as

foreign firms operating in Italy, and completed research projects to prepare for the trip. After a brief stay in Rome, students traveled to Urbino to attend sessions with university faculty and guest speakers, as well as to visit companies in the region of Le Marche. Among the sites visited were the Hotel Mamiani, a hotel that utilizes aggressive social marketing to create a competitive advantage; RossoFuoco, a pizza oven start-up that grew out of a metal fabrication business; Valmex, a leading producer of energy efficient products including heat exchangers; Pascucci CaffĂ¨, a rapidly growing coffee brand; and Guerrieri, a family-owned winery and food producer.

ithin the magical setting of the picturesque Italian countryside, students absorbed the rich culture along with informative presentations by local faculty, business owners, and industry association representatives. Combined with behind-the-scenes tours of production facilities, students gained valuable insights into Italian agribusiness. Professor Di Gregorio observed, “Students were able to witness how responsible business plays out in the Italian context. For instance, we visited a winery that produces other food products primarily so that it can keep its workers employed yearround.” Businesses the group visited are deeply rooted in the region of Le Marche, and seek to contribute to their region’s economic vitality. Many of the businesses also incorporate cultural resources into their core business models in ways that preserve and renew those resources. Students’ experiences defied simple stereotypes of Italy and Europe, including meeting a female entrepreneur who is bringing a new product to
market, as well as observing deep-rooted family firms that are leading their sectors in innovation. Urbino serves as an excellent venue for CSUMB students to gain international experience. According to Di Gregorio, “The region faces many of the same issues that we see in the Monterey Bay, such as increased international competition and opportunities to leverage valuable cultural resources. Hopefully the students can leverage their observations from Italy to become more effective managers and entrepreneurs, and to contribute to their home communities.” Most importantly, students were able to interact with University of Urbino students, who were gracious hosts, joining the group for several sessions and site visits. Professor Di Gregorio expressed appreciation to his group’s hosts, saying, “The success of the program would not have been possible without the efforts of our dedicated partners at the University of Urbino, including Professor Pete Cullen and Program Coordinator Nicola Aulitano.”

CULTIVATING THE NEXT GENERATION OF ENTREPRENEURS The JA “Be Entrepreneurial” program offers a unique opportunity for local high school students to develop entrepreneurial skills. With the help of forty College of Business students, who serve as volunteer coaches, high schoolers at five local schools learned how to develop an
idea for a product, create a business plan, and present it to a panel of judges. Out of the 300 high school students who participated, thirty-eight were selected to compete in the JA Business Competition held at CSUMB on April 27, 2017. The program owes its success to the ongoing support of Bettye Saxon, Regional Manager of AT&T and CSUMB Foundation Board Director, and funding provided by AT&T.
STARTUP CHALLENGE COMPETITION HONES ENTREPRENEURIAL SKILLS NINETY-ONE entrepreneurs from the Monterey Bay region applied for the 2017 Startup Challenge in three divisions: 1) Venture - businesses intended to grow into large enterprises, 2) Main Street - small businesses, and 3) Student - high school, undergraduate, and graduate school students. After applicants presented their ideas to a panel of judges on April 8th, twenty-four finalists were selected to expand their business idea and prepare a 10-minute presentation to judges on May 12th. The top three finalists from the Venture and Main Street categories competed in the Otter Tank, similar to the popular “Shark Tank” T.V. series. Aether, the Venture Division Winner, won the $20,000 cash prize plus $10,000 in legal and other business services. The company was created by Pavle Jeremic, Chase Armer, and Hannah Meyers (pictured right), with the goal of lowering manufacturing costs while accelerating pharmaceutical development by utilizing their Organism Design Software.
Other winners: The Lab Pros - Main Street Division, $10,000 cash prize; Cruz Foam - Student Division, $1,500 cash prize; Archer Components and IonDX - Venture Division Runners-up; Credo Studio and Ohana Shave Ice Main Street Division Runners-up. thestartupchallenge.org
GreaterVision2016 The Future of Labor: The Impact of Technology on Employment and Community Life in the Salinas Valley
gricultural production in the Salinas Valley and its environs directly added 11,374 jobs in the last four years, reaching a direct farm employment figure of 53,702 in Monterey County. This impressive growth in employment (and corresponding output) is positioning the Salinas Valley at the forefront of high-tech agriculture in the U.S. Greater Vision 2016 focused on the impact of technology and the practical issues and dilemmas that the Salinas Valley and the Monterey Bay region face as precision agriculture, robotics, and the Internet of Things (IOT) increasingly become ubiquitous.

The panel addressed how developments in precision agriculture, software, robotics, bio-engineering, and IOT will impact employment. Will farmers and agricultural workers in the Salinas Valley face the prospect of permanent elimination from the economic process? Managing the negative effects on the workforce, while reaping the benefits of technological advances, will require ongoing collaboration with all stakeholders. The Grower Shipper Association Foundation and the College of Business at CSUMB partnered to present this public event to foster an informed dialogue among students, faculty, community members, and policy makers on critical and transformational issues in the region.

ETHICS AND RESPONSIBLE BUSINESS FORUM
Freedom vs. Privacy
Has Big Brother gone too far? A debate about the erosion of digital privacy.
This year’s Forum provoked deep discussion and reflection on the ethics of digital privacy. After closing arguments were heard, moderator Bud Colligan asked audience members for their assessment. A clear majority concluded that privacy laws should extend into the digital realm and that individuals’ digital rights should remain protected.

make connections that may help open doors in the future. Students organizers gained hands-on experience in event management, as they held meetings, assigned tasks, confirmed speakers, navigated the process of reserving a venue, arranged for catering, and organized promotional materials and activities. It was a great opportunity for students to apply what they are learning on how to collaborate, network, and perform project management tasks. In addition to events like the Business Outlook Forum, each club has something unique to offer at its own individually organized meetings and events.

COMMUNITY PARTNERS|ENGAGEMENT be educated, not to work. CSUMB is training students the way they need to be trained, to be productive and make a difference.” Hospitality, he says, might be the fastestgrowing industry in the world and in very progressive ways – Airbnb is the largest hotel chain in the world, and it doesn’t own a single hotel room. It took a long time to bring hospitality into higher education, he says, but he has found a dynamic environment in CSUMB’s growing hospitality program, located in a hotbed of hospitality on the Peninsula. Ted and Velma Balestreri have donated to CSUMB’s Sustainable Hospitality Program with an endowed scholarship, and have given their name to the Sustainable Hospitality Director’s Office in the Joel and Dena Gambord Business and Information Technology Building. “I understand this university believes in being a Steward of Place,” he says. “I like that. It means do what’s best for the community. There are three main prongs to this place, among others – hospitality,agriculture and education. We cater to these areas, and they serve us well.” Balestreri believes in creating community through contribution. He gives generously to this community, with a commitment to those who wouldn’t have a chance to go to school—to move forward—without support.
... to Sustainable Hospitality Management
ED BALESTRERI was born in Brooklyn, but the Carmel High School graduate, who grew up to become Chairman and CEO of the Cannery Row Company, has appreciated the reaches of Monterey County for as long as he can remember. “In the most beautiful place on the planet, where land meets water, where the Carmel Mission, the Monterey Bay, Carmel-by-the-Sea and Cannery Row attract visitors, one of the other great wonders of the area,” says Balestreri, “is a progressive university known as CSU Monterey Bay.” Balestreri firmly believes one should never let school get in the way of an education. Actually, he means to make the most of the privilege and, rather than leaving the lessons in the classroom, take them out into the community, make something of them, and apply them to do good work. He has witnessed this through CSU Monterey Bay (CSUMB). “What I like about CSUMB,” he says, “is that students are not shackled by traditional learning. This university pioneers. It works with technology, and takes students out of the classroom and into the community, where they can move society forward.Most schools educate students to
“I appreciate art and music,” he says, “but no one ever died because they couldn’t go see a painting.” Balestreri believes in giving to those who need food, who need shelter, who need safety and security, and to those who can use education to cultivate their minds and pave a path to a productive life. “My father died when I was young,” he says. “When they read the will, I learned he left me in a great country, with a whole world in which to make a living. The point is, we need to help cultivate, not cripple, our youth. I’m the luckiest guy in the world because I was born in this country. Too many people look at what they can take instead of what they can contribute.” Education, he says, is the greatest resource we have to better ourselves and the world around us. But, it takes courage to go to college. “Courage is not fighting fear but overcoming it,” he says. “If you can do something a little outside your comfort level, you will get stronger. It’s like the story of the little boy who helped the butterfly break out of its cocoon. By not having to work its way out, it did not become strong enough to fly. You can get this at CSUMB; you can struggle and work hard, and build the strength and character to fly.” Written by Lisa Crawford Watson / Photo by Randy Tunnell Reprinted by permission from Foundation of CSUMB 2016 Annual Report.
