Willamette University MBA faculty are comitted to the intellectual, professional, and personal development of our students, teaching and learning is their focus.  Each member of the faculty is an active contributor to his/her disciplinary field.  Their research influences scholarship, the practice of management, and the formulation of public policy.  Their managerial contributions impact government agencies, not-for-profit organizations, and commercial enterprises. Students know their faculty; the faculty know their students. We are not a high-volume, low-cost provider.  Our value proposition has been, and will continue to be, high-quality, rigorous, intensive teaching and learning, on a human scale.
