The MBA is an accelerated management program with an experiential component and an emphasis on innovation, sustainability, technology and entrepreneurship. The program is designed to provide our graduates with the necessary skills to solve complex business problems and to successfully compete in the business marketplace. Foundation courses include such fundamentals as business law, accounting, finance, operations, management, and marketing. Advanced courses explore contemporary business topics in depth, with an emphasis on sustainability, technology, entrepreneurship and innovation in the global economy. Course work is completed in tandem with the experiential component of the program, the Integrated Business Project (IBP).

With the IBP, student teams are tasked with creating fact-based, research-driven business plans for the companies of their choice. Whether developing an entrepreneurial venture from scratch or providing an established business with new direction and growth potential, students become active in their own education. As the cornerstone of the College of Business MBA, the IBP program has a lasting impact, not only on students but on commerce and industry in Oregon.

The MBA program is an intensive, fast-paced program designed to guide students through a rigorous foundation and core curriculum while allowing them to pursue their interests and push their boundaries. Throughout, students learn to build teams, integrate disciplines, work under pressure and multitask. In short, the same skills they will rely on when they leave campus.
