Experiential and Consequential Learning

Our suite of hands-on programs and opportunities makes the Early Career & Career Change MBA best in class.

 

The Willamette MBA is specifically designed to provide you with the new professional work experiences employers look for when they hire MBA graduates. Willamette MBA provides this work experience through its emphasis on high quality experiential learning. You will do real consulting projects with real clients through PACE (a first year core course) and experiential electives. You will also have the opportunity to experience the highest level of experiential learning available—"consequential learning."

Consequential learning means you will make real managerial decisions with real money and real organizations, implement those decisions to meet organizational goals, respond to the results of the decisions you made to better meet goals, and present your results to a governing board—all within the safety net of the Willamette MBA program.
