MBA for Professionals next Portland cohort begins January 9, 2012

We understand that competing passions -- career, family, community -- mean that timing is everything. We often first hear from talented professionals like you just 30 days before the beginning of the semester. If you or someone you know is ready now, there is still time to apply to the MBA for Professionals Portland cohort. The Willamette University MBA for Professionals program represents the University's tradition of achievement and action, focused on solving local and global challenges and helping you achieve your career goals.
