Identity> Jewish Business Students Association (JBSA)

The mission of the Jewish Business Students Association (JBSA) is to build and sustain a community that enhances the professional, social and educational experience for Jewish and interested students at Anderson. Our goal is to provide a supportive environment in which students can interact and practice with the Jewish community on campus, in Southern California and beyond. Our priorities include recruiting, social events, alumni relations, mentoring, academic performance, career development and community involvement. To accomplish these objectives, the JBSA continues to build strong relationships with corporate and community partners.
