Concordia University

Located in Northeast Portland, Concordia is one of ten Concordia University System campuses in America and the only member of these private, Lutheran colleges in the Pacific Northwest.  The Portland campus has over three thousand students.  Concordia offers an evening MBA program that is popular for working professionals in the city.
  Through a hybrid on-campus and online format, students attend class one Saturday each month while engaging in online coursework and discussion groups.  The flexible format makes it a popular alternative for students with busy lives to earn an MBA.  Through this format, students can complete the program in two years or less at a total cost of around $28,000.  Recently Concordia University earned ACBSP accreditation for its business program.

The Life:  There is plenty of “Portlandia” charm to Concordia.  Northeast Portland is an old residential neighborhood with many houses dating back to the early 20th century.  Students can enjoy many nearby restaurants and pubs when they come to campus.  Concordia is also easily accessible to downtown Portland and Portland International Airport

Drawbacks:  Concordia’s MBA is not much more affordable than nearby University of Portland, which is AACSB accredited.
