George Fox University

George Fox University is located in Newberg, Oregon and is a private Christian college founded in 1885 by Quakers.  Its longevity and accreditations (ACBSP) give the George Fox MBA its clout in the Portland area.  The Portland Business Journal has ranked it #4 in northern OregonForbes Magazine calls George Fox one of the top ten Christian colleges in the west.
  The program is offered full-time at the Newberg campus and part-time in Portland near Interstate 5 and Highway 217—a highly convenient location for many commuting professionals in Multnomah and Washington counties.  The full-time option can be completed in just 11 months and the part-time option will take 24 months.  Either way, the total cost for a George Fox MBA will run approximately $30,000.  Prospective students must be able to demonstrate a 2.7 GPA in their undergraduate work, but the GMAT exam is not a requirement. 

The Life:  Newberg is a congenial town in the midst of Oregon wine country.  A 30 minute drive east will bring you to everything the city of Portland has to offer, while a slightly longer drive to the west will bring you to the Oregon Coast.  The campus itself is located a home-run hit from downtown Newberg, an idyllic turn-of-page with many restaurants and shops to peruse before or after class.

Drawbacks:  George Fox does not accept any transfer coursework as progress toward its MBA.
