Program description


The Early Career MBA

The Willamette University Early Career MBA is an innovative program that allows students to begin their MBA without prior work experience. Ideal for career entry change or advancement, the Early Career MBA emphasizes experiential learning through class consulting projects, student professional organizations, and career services programs.

Willamette Early Career MBA students come from across the United States and around the world. Thirty percent are international students and 16 percent are members of minority groups. Undergraduate major areas of study include business, social science, liberal arts, economics, engineering, math, and science.

Willamette's size and collegial atmosphere facilitate a high degree of interaction between faculty members and students. The learning environment emphasizes excellent teaching, teamwork, and the practical application of knowledge.

Why the Willamette MBA?
The unique curriculum integrates business, government, and nonprofit management, resulting in more career opportunities. In addition, students may pursue their individual interests by exploring:
  • Accounting
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Finance
  • Human resources
  • Marketing
  • Operations, analysis, and systems
  • Organizational analysis
  • Public and not-for-profit management
  • Students interested in international management will also find an assortment of courses that support their career interests.

The Willamette MBA also adds valuable experience to your résumé through experiential learning where you 'learn by doing.' Internships, consulting projects, case studies, simulations, student investment fund, ethics in business awards, and the PACE Projects (where teams of students create and operate real organizations) build the knowledge and experience employers value.
