Our students work in companies such as Microsoft, Boeing, Expedia, ICOS, Amgen and Phillips. We also have a facility, the Eastside Leadership Center in Bellevue, WA, that currently serves our undergraduate and graduate students. All faculty members in the School of Business should expect to teach at both Bothell and Bellevue locations.

The UW Bothell School of Business is accredited by AACSB and is deeply committed to the success of its faculty on both research and teaching fronts.
