Bellevue Chamber, UW Bothell Announce Eastside Mini-MBA Program

Press Release,

The Bellevue Chamber of Commerce and the School of Business at the University of Washington Bothell are proud to announce the Eastside Mini-MBA, a pioneering online executive certificate program that enables leaders, managers, and professionals to grow their fundamental business acumen, manage people and projects, and deliver sustainable business value.

The program is focused on developing the next generation of business leaders in the Eastside community. The Mini-MBA allows small and medium-sized businesses throughout the region to develop business leaders with more flexibility than a traditional MBA at a more affordable cost.

The Eastside Mini-MBA will cover areas like Business Acumen (e.g., Strategy, Finance, Marketing) with a focus on business value; Leadership; Diversity, Equality and Inclusion; and Digital Skills. Classes will be taught by distinguished faculty members that teach in the School’s MBA program. Every student will be mentored by a senior business leader drawing from the boards of the Bellevue Chamber and the School of Business at UW Bothell. Students will be provided a regional challenge by a community leader.

We are delighted to welcome Falco Sult as a founding corporate sponsor.

“We are excited to partner with the School of Business at UW Bothell to educate future business leaders on the Eastside,” said Kendall Anderegg, Chair of the Bellevue Chamber Board of Directors. “The Eastside Mini-MBA will be a valuable asset to the business community throughout the region.”

The classes will be held virtually on Monday evenings beginning March 28. In all, there will be 17 three-hour segments that will continue until mid-July. All courses will be taught online.

Program tuition for Bellevue Chamber members is $4,500 and $5,000 for non-Chamber members.

Applications are due by March 1, 2022, at 11:59 PM PT. You can apply online here.
