Choices at Bellevue

ELC Applications Open for Autumn 2022

Join our Eastside Leadership Center (ELC) program in Bellevue to enjoy an easily accessible Eastside location and high-tech learning environment with personalized attention. Students in our ELC program can complete their Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration with a Supply Chain Management Option or Entrepreneurship Concentration. The ELC program boasts an innovative curriculum that offers excellent career preparation for working professionals and students alike.

After completing core classes, ELC students can transfer to the UW Bothell campus to complete one of the other options or concentrations available in our business program. Similarly, students in our UW Bothell business program can transfer to our ELC program in Bellevue to pursue the Supply Chain Management Option or Entrepreneurship Concentration. Please contact an advisor for more information.

The School of Business is in the process of updating our program options. In the meantime, we are pausing our ELC Leadership and Strategic Innovation and ELC Marketing Options and will not accept entry into these programs for Autumn 2022. These programs are available at the Bothell campus. If you have any questions or need any additional support, please contact Kathryn Hagy at
