Opportunities for Concordia MBA Students

The Willamette University community is saddened by the news of Concordia University's closure. Concordia has been a leader in service-oriented education in our region, and its students, faculty, and staff have made impactful contributions to our community for decades.

Willamette University shares many of the values and cultural attributes of a school like Concordia: we are a private, liberal arts university with a service orientation best described by our motto, Non nobis solum nati sumus, Not Alone Unto Ourselves Are We Born. In this spirit, we are working to support Concordia students however we can. To that end: 

• All currently enrolled Concordia MBA students who meet our admission criteria (MBA for Professionals and Early Career & Career Change) will be guaranteed a minimum scholarship covering 25% of the tuition cost to attend Willamette MBA, with the opportunity for additional scholarship.

• The GMAT/GRE exam requirement will be waived for all currently enrolled Concordia MBA students who have completed at least 12 graduate credits with a 3.25 GPA or higher. Please contact us to request an exam waiver.

Every situation is different, so the best place to start is with an individual conversation. Our admission specialists are available to talk with you at any time.

• Join us for a webinar on Tuesday, February 18 (details TBD)
