Founded in 1961, Gonzaga's Master of Business Administration (MBA) program has been producing outstanding business leaders for over 50 years and has the alumni network to match.

The Gonzaga MBA's focus is on quality of education, flexibility for students, and value to propel our graduates to future success. Our AACSB-accredited MBA is the only Top 100 ranked part-time program in the Inland NW. Evening and weekend classes fit the busy work and life schedules of our part-time students. While some top programs around the nation cost over $100,000, the Gonzaga MBA is on par with other local tuitions, at just $32,835 for the entire program.

 

Why Gonzaga? 

Quality - Through small class sizes, dedicated professors, and a challenging curriculum built on Jesuit values, Gonzaga offers an optimal learning environment and community where students develop personally and professionally. Gonzaga’s MBA program is accredited by AACSB, the most rigorous accreditation body in business education. Only 5% of MBA program worldwide achieve this distinction.

Reputation - Our reputation is evident in the fact that 90% of our graduates receive a promotion or a new position within three to six months of graduation. Gonzaga's part-time MBA program ranks in the top 100 (every year since 2009), and is the only top 100 ranked MBA program in the Inland Northwest.

Flexibility - Students choose between the full-time accelerated 1-year degree or part-time 2-year plan. Our program offers students the flexibility to succeed, offering classes in the evenings, on the weekends, and online in the summer. Approximately one third of courses are electives, creating a tailored program focused on each student's personal and professional goals.

Value - Gonzaga offers the least expensive top 100 ranked MBA program on the west coast. Students complete the entire program for less than $33,000, far below national average of $60,000 ($70,000 for programs ranked in the top 100). 

Location, Location, Location - Spokane is predicted by The Wall Street Journal to have the fastest job growth in the nation between 2010-2020 and was recently named by National Geographic Traveler magazine as one of 29 "Cities on the Rise". Large lakes, five ski areas, mountains and rivers, and outdoor recreation surround Spokane. The city offers plenty of new upscale dining options and a lively nightlife. 

Every MBA program is different.
