WSU has an enrollment of over 29,000 undergraduate, graduate, and professional students and approximately 6,500 faculty and staff.

About Carson College of Business:

The Carson College of Business is AACSB accredited at the undergraduate, MBA, and Ph.D. levels. The Department of Management, Information Systems, and Entrepreneurship conducts high quality research and provides world-class education to students on four campuses (Everett, Pullman, Vancouver, and Tri-Cities) and online through our Global Campus. The Carson College of Business (CCB) enrolls 2,200 undergraduate students and houses the US News and World Report 13th ranked online MBA in the country, which enrolls over 700 students. The college has 92 full-time faculty across its campuses and 75 staff. The CCB has invested in and executed successful growth strategies. As a result, the CCB has run budget surpluses every year since 2013, accumulating significant reserve funds held at the college and department level.

Our faculty are nationally and internationally recognized researchers and dedicated teachers who bring a great deal of skill, enthusiasm, and commitment to the classroom. We are also fortunate to have a dedicated network of alumni that mentor students, offer internship opportunities, and recruit our students into high quality full-time positions in Washington and beyond.

WSU Everett is one of four campuses, located in Everett, Washington. The Everett campus establishes close relationships with industry nearby including Boeing and Fluke that offers unique opportunities for world-class teaching and research.
