The UW Bothell MBA program offered in Bellevue and Bothell is a flex-cohort model. 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. The MBA Program consists of 64 credits: 44 required credits and 20 elective credits. Most courses are 4 credits. Students may pursue elective credits through most quarters of the program.  Applying to begin with early electives allows incoming students the opportunity to start in winter, spring, or summer before joining the September cohort.

International applicants

International applicants who need an F1 visa to study and who are in the U.S. will need more time for the process to obtain the F1 visa. Therefore, international MBA applicants needing an F1 visa may apply only for autumn quarter each year.  Applicants needing an F1 visa are encouraged to apply by February 10, however applicants can submit after the February 10 deadline.

International applicants who are currently in the U.S. on other visa types, and who will continue to stay on that same visa type, may apply for winter, spring, summer or autumn quarters for the MBA program.
