Among the best things about working at Willamette University are the opportunities for professional development and personal growth. The Graduate Tuition Benefit for Employees is our most valuable benefit for accessing the power of a Willamette University education.
The MBA for Professionals is an accelerated, evening program designed to fit into your busy schedule. Classes are offered two evenings per week, right here on campus, in Ford Hall. The all-inclusive structure of the program provides all your textbooks and catered meals on nights you have class. You'll learn alongside business leaders, not-for-profit professionals, and public servants, in a small cohort of about 20 students.
