STUDENT STORY

Adrian Mandujano

ADRIAN MANDUJANO

Adrian Mandujano had long wanted to open his own business. Which is why he turned to MiraCosta College’s entrepreneurship program when he went looking for the marketing and management skills to help him succeed. As media arts and technology major at MiraCosta College, Mandujano learned how to build a website. He interviewed local business owners and went behind the scenes at Legoland to learn how to treat customers right. And he also picked up pointers on crafting a business plan and staging cultural events. He is among the reasons MiraCosta College alumni are responsible for generating more than $252 million in added income to the region each year.
