EVERETT – Beginning next fall, Washington State University will offer a new bachelor’s degree program in business administration at the Everett campus.
The business degree track is one of the most popular in the Washington State University system, which includes campuses in Pullman, Spokane, the Tri-Cities, Vancouver and Everett, university officials said.
“The bachelor’s degree in business administration from the WSU Carson College of Business is an incredibly strong tool to propel a student’s career in a diverse set of industries that are growing locally,” Paul Pitre, WSU Everett’s chancellor, said in a statement.
“Now it is available to students who want or need to stay closer to home in Everett,” Pitre said.
The WSU system plans to resume mostly in-person classes beginning with the fall semester. Details are being worked out, officials said.
WSU Carson College of Business is among the 2% of business administration schools worldwide to achieve accreditation at the bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral levels from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, Pitre said.
“Offering the business administration bachelor’s degree on the WSU Everett campus moves the Carson College closer to our goal of becoming the first choice for undergraduate business education in the Pacific Northwest,” said Chip Hunter, college dean.
With the new degree, WSU Everett now offers eight bachelor’s degree programs.
The others are data analytics, electrical engineering, hospitality business management, integrated strategic communication, mechanical engineering, organic and sustainable agriculture and software engineering.
All bachelor’s degree programs are designed for transfer students, but students currently at a community college or participating in the Running Start or College in the High School programs are eligible to dual-enroll at WSU Everett.
