You will learn from peers who represent diverse industries and academic backgrounds. Whether you come with a bachelor's degree in business, the sciences, or some other field, your experiences and perspectives will add valuable insight to the classroom.

PLU MBA students come to campus two evenings per week. Classes meet from 6:00 - 9:30 p.m. You will begin the program by taking the MBA core, a set of strategically developed courses built around global awareness, innovation and ethical responsibility. You can choose elective courses to fulfill a program emphasis area, or pursue a general MBA. The PLU MBA Program is designed to be completed in five terms (20-22 months), but you may take longer. You can start your MBA in Fall, Spring, or Summer term and set your own pace.
