The Pamplin School of Business Administration at the University of Portland features some of the Pacific Northwest’s top-notch faculty and a curriculum “integrating professional experience into academic concepts.” The program administrator has made this “wonderfully run” program “extremely easy to do while working,” as many do, and the university even offers some tuition discounts to those who are seeking Nonprofit Management degrees (a notable program here), as well as scholarships for international students. The school is part of JEBNET, Jesuit Education in Business Network, which is a network of thirty AACSB-accredited universities nationwide that share similarly “strong mission statements” and provide students the ability to transfer credits and complete their MBA at another university.

The “good atmosphere within the classroom” is built on the foundation of “some of the most engaged professors I have had,” according to one student. They “seem to really enjoy what they are teaching and a majority do a great job engaging students,” and “are just as invested in your academic and career advancement” as the individual themselves. “Most of [the] professors treat me as their family or friends, and I’ve learned a lot of practical things from my school,” says a student. Varied experiential backgrounds help instructors to provide a well-rounded curriculum.

The school’s Catholic ties result in “an ideals driven environment,” one that also happens to be “understanding of students working while attending classes.” Most of the students are able to “work with professors one on one” outside of class. “The staff is amazing and the professors are intense, but it’s an MBA program, so what’d you expect?!” says one happy student.
