The Atkinson MBA: What You Need To Know

Willamette’s Early Career and Career Change MBA fosters cooperation, not competition. Throughout the 21-month program, students build a resume of hands-on experience through internships, consulting projects, and experiential electives, including a student investment fund, a venture capital course, and a philanthropic investment course. The school’s MBA program holds a dual accreditation in business (AACSB) and public administration (NASPAA), a rare feat. 

Willamette MBA students master the fundamental principles of management through the B-school’s core curriculum. A hallmark of the Willamette core curriculum is PACE (Practical Application for Careers and Enterprises). The PACE course involves students in a six-month consulting project for not-for-profit clients. It begins with practical management concepts, which students utilize as they begin their consulting services. Throughout the program, students receive guidance, reflect on their knowledge, and define their steps toward the future.

They can then develop career-specific knowledge by selecting electives from 10 functional areas of interest, including Entrepreneurship, Management Science & Quantitative Methods, and Public & Not-for-profit Management, among others.

The B-school also offers an evening MBA for Professionals program tailored to students with three years’ or more experience, as well as a new certificate program in Data Science. Willamette students with an interest in law can pursue an MBA/JD joint degree.
