Alumni Referral Program

As a Willamette MBA alumnus, you are the greatest advocate for our program. We appreciate your continued support of our recruitment efforts and thank you for sharing the Willamette MBA story with your co-workers, friends, and family.

Our goal is to recruit exceptional students just like you. To do that, we ask for your help in identifying high achieving individuals who will benefit from the personal attention offered in both our Early Career and Career Change MBA and our evening MBA for Professionals programs in Salem or Portland.

When you make a referral to the Early Career and Career Change MBA or the MBA for Professionals program, if that candidate is admitted, enrolls, and remains enrolled through the first semester, we’ll credit $1,000 to his or her tuition balance during the student’s second semester in your name. It’s a great way to empower someone to make a solid investment in his or her future and allows you to extend your legacy as a successful Willamette MBA alumnus.

Thank you for supporting the Willamette MBA and continuing our tradition of excellence and service!

  • Any graduate from the Atkinson Graduate School of Management (regardless of program format) is eligible to make a referral.
  • The referred student must enroll in the Early Career and Career Change MBA program in Salem or the evening MBA for Professionals program in Salem or Portland for the tuition credit.
  • The referrer must complete the online form (below). This form will also serve as a letter of reference to the MBA for Professionals program (mba-p@willamette.edu). The letter and/or e-mail must be received prior to candidate's matriculation into the Willamette MBA program and will be a part of the candidate's file.
