Noski Family Scholarship

Charles “Chuck” Noski has had a brilliant career – following nearly 20 years with “Big Four” accounting firm Deloitte & Touche, Noski went on to serve as the Chief Financial Officer of Bank of America, AT&T and Northrop Grumman, as well as President of Hughes Electronics Corporation. In recent years, he also served on the boards of directors of companies such as Microsoft, Morgan Stanley, Avon Products and Priceline. Noski earned his bachelor’s degree in business administration and a master’s degree in accounting at CSUN, and wants to offer accounting students the same opportunity to pursue their business education at CSUN. Both Chuck and his wife, Lisa, are CPAs, and both were the first in their families to graduate from college.
