The UW Bothell MBA programs offered in Bellevue and Bothell are flex-cohort models. A cohort is a group of people banded together for a common purpose. Students complete required core curriculum as a cohort, creating a dynamic, interactive learning experience for working professionals. The MBA cohort experience begins each September and continues during autumn, winter and spring quarters. Elective courses, offered to all MBA students, provide students with the flexibility to select courses that fit their needs and allows incoming students to start spring or summer before joining the cohort in September.

Each MBA Program consists of 72 credits: 52 required credits and 20 elective credits. Most courses are 4 credits. Students may pursue elective credits through most quarters of the program.
