Management Culture and Communication Program 2017

Welcome to the MCCP

The Management Culture and Communication Program is an experience designed to help both international and domestic students acclimate to management culture and communications.  All incoming students in the Early Career and Career Change MBA program are strongly encouraged to participate, incoming international students are required to complete the program. 

The MCCP exposes candidates to business culture in the United States while also providing insights into what to expect in the Willamette University MBA classroom.  In the 4-day program, participants will engage in team-building activities, take part in a sample class, explore case analysis strategies, learn expectations for research and writing with integrity, and visit local companies. The program is facilitated by Willamette University MBA administration, faculty, and staff. 

At the close of each day, volunteers will be on hand to help you get settled into the area; activities will be based on the needs of the group and may include trips to grocery stores and malls, local banking, DMV, and recreation sites.

Parking throughout the week will be available in the Atkinson Graduate School of Management (Seeley G. Mudd Building) parking lot.
