Portland Hybrid MBA - Oregon State MBA

Portland Hybrid MBA

Our Portland MBA students are people looking for flexibility because they are putting in the hours to move the needle at work at the same time as they are pursuing their degree. As working professionals, they want to finish as quickly as they can in a rigorous program that they (and employers) can be proud of. That’s exactly who we built the hybrid program for.

Hybrid program format

The Portland MBA programs are delivered in a hybrid format, a flexible blend of online coursework and in-person sessions. Online coursework may include watching recorded lectures, working on group projects and/or reading case studies and other materials.

In-person sessions are an opportunity to meet with classmates and faculty to cover course material, learn from faculty and network with peers. The in-person classes are built to your advantage; we don’t believe in wasting time, so don’t expect these to be lectures (you can view lectures online). In-person classes are all about making sure you’re forging connections with your peers, meeting the right people (including alumni and other experts), engaging in discussions on advanced concepts, and presenting project work for review and feedback.

Portland in-person classes are held at the OSU Portland Center at Pioneer Square, typically on weekday evenings from 6 to 9 p.m.

Program Length

Our Portland hybrid programs are part-time and designed to be completed in 30 months. Students who qualify for the accelerated program can finish in 21 months.

We’re an aacsb-accredited college

We’re an AACSB-accredited college, and our Portland courses, like our Corvallis courses, are taught by Oregon State faculty members who are experts in their fields and have business experience. The prestigious AACSB accreditation is known worldwide as the longest-standing, most recognized form of specialized/professional accreditation an institution and its business programs can earn.

I hit the button to request more information, scheduled a call with a recruiter to learn more about the flexibility of OSU’s MBA program and that eased my worries about working and going to school at the same time. OSU made it easy to go back to school, and I’ve loved the MBA program and faculty. I’m a full-on supporter, and I’d recommend it to anyone. It definitely got me where I am today. The OSU MBA program is very flexible - not easy - but manageable, doable. And I’m glad it’s not easy. If it were, that would be an issue.
