Founded in 1961, Gonzaga's Master of Business Administration (MBA) program has been producing outstanding business leaders for over 60 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-ranked part-time program in the Inland Northwest. While some top programs around the nation cost over $100,000, the Gonzaga MBA is comparable to other local tuitions, costing approximately $37,000 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 programs worldwide achieve this distinction.
  • Alumni consistently identify our faculty as the program’s greatest strength. Students gain knowledge from over 40 tenure or tenure-track faculty members. While active in research and consulting, our faculty members’ primary passion is teaching.
  • The MBA Alumni Advisory Board regularly reviews the relevance of programming and seeks to build relationships with current students. 

Reputation

  • Gonzaga's MBA program has ranked in the top 100 by U.S. News & World Report every year since 2009, placing it in the top 20% of programs nationwide. Our program is the only top-ranked MBA program in the Inland Northwest, currently ranked 57th in the nation.
  • Gonzaga also ranked #29 in the Corporate Knights "Better World MBA" Ranking. Only seven programs in the United States ranked higher than Gonzaga. Our MBA program is one of the top programs in the world instilling holistic purpose in business leaders.  

Flexibility

  • At Gonzaga, we don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all MBA program. While our core curriculum provides students with a comprehensive foundation in business management, students take approximately one-third of their coursework in electives. Students may choose to pursue a general MBA or a concentration in Project Management or Finance
  • Our program provides students with the flexibility to succeed. We offer two options, on campus or online (coming fall 2023). The online program allows students to study on their own time. In the on-campus option, we offer evening courses, hybrid courses, weekend-intensive courses, and optional online courses in the summer.
  • Students may elect to pursue their degree full-time (12-15 months completion time) or part-time (2-3 years completion time).
  • In our most recent alumni survey, 97% of graduates reported the program provided the flexibility they needed to balance work, family obligations, and personal life. 

Value

  • Students complete the entire program for approximately $37,000. We are able to provide students with a top-tier education at an affordable cost.
  • In our most recent alumni survey, 85% of graduates reported they received a raise or found a new job with a higher salary within 5 years of graduating, and 87% say new job opportunities have opened up for them since earning their MBA.
