New Partnership with Bellevue College

University of Washington Bothell Announces Collaboration with Bellevue College


Starting this Fall of 2022, the University of Washington Bothell School of Business will be bringing two new undergraduate programs — Entrepreneurship and Supply Chain Management, to the School of Business' Eastside Leadership Center (ELC) on the beautiful Bellevue College campus. UW Bothell's collaboration with Bellevue College expands resources, opportunities, and creates an environment to help students reach new levels of personal and professional success. 

The city of Bellevue is a global innovation hub fueled by a highly educated, entrepreneurial, and diverse workforce. On top of that, more than 17,500 new jobs were created in Bellevue over the past five years, deeming it the benchmark city that added the most jobs during this period. With growth plans centered on local education and technology giants, ELC students have boundless opportunities to gain professional experience on a global scale to set them apart from other job market candidates. 

The School of Business' ELC will offer a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration in a cohort model. Students can earn an Option in Supply Chain Management (SCM) and Concentration in Entrepreneurship. If ELC students are interested in additional options and concentrations, they can transfer to the UW Bothell campus, after completing their core courses, to complete one of the other options or concentrations available in the School of Business.

The Entrepreneurship program aims to help students commercialize innovations, launch their own ventures, and understand business ownership. Students will gain the knowledge and opportunities to develop a business idea, test their ideas in the market, build a business model, and pitch their new ventures. 

The high-demand SCM program prepares students for materials management, purchasing, supply chain analysis, production management, and logistics. Students will learn about acquisition of materials, production and distribution of products, inventory management, process improvement, and other crucial aspects of supply chains. The program is industry vetted and offers international students with up to three-years of optional practical training.
