The Multicultural Business Program (MBP) is a diverse, inclusive, and multicultural community led by students for students where they matter, belong, and with professional support are connected with resources to persist to graduation and beyond.
MBP envisions an Orfalea experience where all students are prepared for personal, academic, and professional success in a diverse and multicultural world.
MBP seeks to increase the enrollment, retention, and graduation of traditionally underserved, historically underrepresented and marginalized students in higher education and business.
The MBP Center is open throughout the school year.
MBP Fellows join a cohort of students for BUS 100 and ES 112 during their first quarter at Cal Poly and can expect support from their first day on campus through graduation.
Transfer-Mation is a pilot support group for transfer students by transfer students that focuses on the unique experiences of transitioning to OCOB.
