Director's Message

The Washington State University College of Business is accredited at the bachelor, masters, and doctoral levels by AACSB-International, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Housed in a land-grant, research institution, the College conducts scholarly and applied research, and offers degree programs in a variety of business disciplines. Building upon WSU’s land-grant traditions, we are proud that our quality graduate programs are now available in an innovative online format for a broader audience.

As we all know, fast-changing market conditions force business professionals to think creatively and react strategically to gain and sustain competitive advantages. Thus, broadening horizons and enhancing skills is key for you to make a difference as a global leader. The Washington State University MBA equips you with the knowledge to function in a variety of areas and cope with diverse and challenging environments. Our program provides the analytical and conceptual skills to master challenges in globalized, dynamic and increasingly competitive markets.

Based on our expertise and market demand, we are proud to present concentrations in three major areas: Marketing, Finance and International Business.  In addition to adding concentrations, I am excited to share that MBA students now have the opportunity to participate in a 10 day faculty-led international program.  The program offers students a global business perspective with visits to businesses, but also incorporates local cuisine and sightseeing tours.

Washington State University’s online master’s degrees are distinctive because of the many important advantages we offer, such as the versatility needed to meet the demands of busy working students. Also, our impressive network of accomplished business alumni represents WSU and its students throughout the world. Their involvement provides WSU students with valuable support and networking throughout their professional lives.

I encourage you to explore this website and contact WSU to learn more about the online MBA programs. I am confident that our programs will meet your needs and exceed your expectations.
