The University of Washington Bothell MBA program is one of two programs in Washington state ranked by Bloomberg-Businessweek. 

“I enrolled in the UW Bothell MBA program to assist with a career change. Prior to enrolling, and until recently, I was employed as a Claims Adjuster for Allstate Insurance. Thanks to the education I have received at UW Bothell, and the support from my cohort, I started 2014 with a new career as a Financial Operations Analyst with The Boeing Company. The courses taught at UW Bothell - particularly Finance and Negotiations - will help me succeed in this new role. My new goal is to soak up all the knowledge I can and to climb the ranks to the Executive level.”
