Pacific Lutheran University

Pacific Lutheran University was founded in 1890 in the Parkland area of Tacoma.  The PLU MBA is a structured program where cohorts of approximately 15 students will advance through five semesters, attending class two evenings each week.  The curriculum consists of 45 credits, 36 of which are core requirements and the remainder are electives.  The PLU MBA is AACSB accredited and has been listed by Princeton Review as one of the top 15 programs based on student opinion honors.
  Tacoma has a high population of military personnel and PLU is located just a few miles from Fort Lewis and McCord Air Force Base.  PLU offers “Yellow Ribbon” scholarships to military veterans.  Base tuition and fees for the entire PLU MBA come to roughly $48,000. 

The Life:  Pacific Lutheran University’s campus is marked by old brick buildings, pathways, and manicured gardens.  It has easy access to I5 and downtown Tacoma to the north.  Boating on Puget Sound and skiing on Mt. Ranier are two popular outdoor pastimes in the area.

Drawbacks:  South Tacoma, in general, hasn’t aged well.  Some of the nearby neighborhoods appear somewhat shoddy.
