The University of Washington Bothell's nationally ranked MBA programs identify and educate the next generation of leaders in the Pacific Northwest and beyond. Our students plan on becoming intrapreneurs who will revitalize existing businesses with state of the art knowledge and skills as well as entrepreneurs who will help create new businesses and services. The programs emphasize analytical thinking and problem solving grounded in business theory and best practices. Our core curriculum focuses heavily on critical thinking, teamwork, and communication skills.
A decade ago, UW Bothell became the first school to offer an MBA program focused on technology management in the Puget Sound region. In 2009, we started offering a Leadership MBA program in Bellevue, at the Eastside Leadership Center, to meet the needs of professionals and businesses in the Bellevue-Redmond and adjoining areas. In a recent ranking of part-time MBA programs across the nation, our program was ranked 51st in the nation and 3rd in the Pacific Northwest.
Is the Leadership MBA for you?
Have you met colleagues who attribute the failure of an organization to the poor quality of leadership?
Do you know a person who is extremely smart, but cannot find a way to inspire a team to achieve great success?
Do you know managers who simply do not understand the strategy and vision for their organization?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, the UWB LMBA program is designed for you.
The Leadership MBA is built on these ideas-
1. Leadership is a central challenge in today’s corporation.
2. Leadership matters in every functional area and every career stage.
3. Leaders come from diverse backgrounds- young and old, men and women, all ethnicities and cultural heritages.
4. There is no one formula for leadership. What is important is that you develop and practice a clear, coherent and thoughtful leadership philosophy.
5. Communicating effectively across different cultures is vital.
6. Mentoring and being mentored are vital leadership elements.
The UW Bothell Leadership MBA is a one-of-a-kind dynamic program that attracts a diverse student population eager to develop as leaders. The students are passionate about their goals and like to challenge one another to achieve ever greater heights.
