Earning your MBA in the United States is a big move. Living and learning with the Willamette University MBA community is the right move.
Few places are as visually stunning and welcoming as Oregon. And our main campus in Salem is about an hour away from almost anything! Portland, in all its weirdness and glory, is around 1 hour due North. Head West and you'll find some of the most striking coastline you can experience. A short drive South puts you around Eugene, rich in arts and culture surrounded by beautiful outdoor opportunities. And East of Salem lies some of the most awe inspiring mountain ranges on the planet (and much more beyond)!
At Willamette, international students choose our Early Career and Career Change MBA for a few reasons, including:
The program is designed to provide the experience needed to succeed in your career.
Where there are gaps - either informational or cultural - in your experience, we address those with a very personal, one-on-one approach. You don't need extensive professional experience to succeed in our MBA program.
We are the top-ranked program in Oregon.
Rankings are a great way to get a quick sense of an MBA program, but there's so much more to it.
