Business courses at UW Bothell were first offered in 1993, at the birth of the branch campus, then in Canyon Park. Courses of study were first offered in the current downtown Bothell location in 2000. The Eastside Leadership Center (ELC) in Bellevue, WA, was established in 2008. On March 26, 2012, the UW Bothell School of Business was officially launched.
BA and MBA programs are currently offered both at the Bothell campus and at the Eastside Leadership Center (ELC). We are proud to offer daytime as well as evening BA degrees in Business Administration. Undergraduate students can specialize in Accounting, Entrepreneurship, Finance, General Business, International Business, Marketing, Management, Management Information Systems, Retail Management, and Technology and Innovation Management. MBA students choose between the Technology MBA at Bothell and the Leadership MBA in Bellevue at the ELC.
The UWB School of Business is independently accredited by The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). This designation is the most prestigious business school accreditation.
The Entrepreneurship Center (TEC) is an integrated part of the UWB School of Business and provides students with an opportunity to launch their own businesses and to partner with the local business community. The Business Plan Competition is The Center's annual signature event.
