The Atkinson Graduate School of Management

The Early Career and Professional MBA programs have a tradition of sustainability.

At the Atkinson Graduate School of Management, students are unique in many ways – especially their desire to inspire positive change and serve organizations across sectors. Our faculty, staff, students and graduates all embody an approach to management that crosses sectors to make a lasting impact on the organizations they serve.

The Design Thinking course (pictured at right) is an opportunity for students to work “outside the box” and participate in hands-on, experiential projects.  Students are encouraged to see things differently, generate new ideas and tap into their creative side.  They take initiative and think like innovators to become successful entrepreneurs or managers.

To continue enriching the Willamette MBA program with these cutting edge projects and helping our student grow, our faculty and staff rely on your support.
