Daytime MBA

The Western Washington University’s College of Business and Economics Daytime MBA is a fourteen-month intensive program for emergent professionals interested in a full-time/daytime MBA Program. A business-related undergraduate degree is not required. Our Daytime MBA is an interdisciplinary enterprise management program delivered over five quarters starting every September. Technical, managerial, and leadership curricula are combined with a startup, growth, and pivot focused consulting capstone to build a comprehensive foundation for career growth. WWU’s Daytime students benefit from dedicated career services, eligibility for Graduate Assistantships, internship opportunities, and the mentorship possibilities that our small class sizes facilitate.

Program graduates achieve an average starting salary increase of 8% to 65% higher than median salaries achieved by CBE undergraduates who enter the job market with only an undergraduate degree. Six months after graduating, Daytime MBA cohorts report a 95% to 100% job placement rate.

Achieve a high value MBA with affordable, state supported tuition to improve your professional prospects as a capable, hardworking, resilient, holistic driver of business progress and value.
