Washington State University - Tri Cities

In the heartland of Washington, WSU Tri Cities offers an MBA program for working professionals.  Due to the amount of federal government employment in the area, it is a popular program for the public sector and military, as well as the rich agricultural industry.  Unlike many states where regional campuses in the university system offer separate programs, the WSU MBA is administered from Pullman and all campuses share a common core curriculum.  Students graduating from Pullman, Vancouver, or Tri Cities receive the same degree from Washington State University.
  Each WSU campus has its own specialized concentration for the MBA and at Tri Cities students will focus on Technology Management.  Classes are offered once a week in the evening, so a student taking two classes per semester can complete the WSUV MBA in two years at the total Washington resident cost of approximately $20,000 including books and other fees.  Another benefit to the WSU MBA is that it is compatible with WSU’s top ranked online MBA program, meaning that students who experience life changes that prevent attending some classes in person may take those classes online—a real benefit to government and military professionals.

The Life:  The “Tri Cities” are Richland, Kennewick, and Pasco—three town in the breadbasket of WashingtonYakima, Walla Walla, and Pendleton, Oregon are three additional cities of significant size located in this region.  Located on the banks of the Columbia River, WSU Vancouver is a commuter campus in fairly rural part of the country.  Outdoor recreation abounds.

Drawbacks:  WSU Tri Cities is located close to Hanford Nuclear Reservation which is the site of much federal research, but also home to aging storages of Manhattan Project and Cold War nuclear waste.
