Class Schedule for Fall Semester 2014

First-year students will automatically be pre-registered for the fall semester core curriculum. Judy O'Neill, Associate Dean and Director of Admission, will contact students who have special registration options or needs based on their program format.

As a general guideline, most first-year Willamette MBA students will be enrolled in the following courses for a total of 15 semester credits.

  • GSM 5101: Managing Organizations: Individuals, Teams & Human Resources (1.5 credits)*
  • GSM 5102: Managing Organizations: Design and Change (1.5 credits) *
  • GSM 5103: Data Analysis, Modeling and Decision Making and Lab (3 credits)
  • GSM 5105: Accounting for Managers (3 credits)
  • GSM 5107: Marketing: Creating Satisfied Customers (3 credits)
  • GSM 5108 PACE I: Practical Application for Careers & Enterprises (3 credits)

Remember, that as a Willamette MBA student you will be involved in many meetings and sessions outside of class (experiential learning, client projects, career management services, professional organizations, etc.). We estimate you will be busy with the MBA program (classes, studying, meetings, events, organizations, etc.) approximately 50 to 60 hours per week.

*Note: GSM 5101 and 5102 share the same time slot.  One is taught during the first half of the semester and the other is taught during the second half of the semester.
