In addition to whether a student is an Oregon resident and enrolled in the standard or accelerated MBA, Corvallis (Part-Time) program, cost will also depend on:

Organizational Leadership Track

I understood the value of an MBA as a professional growth opportunity for enhancing my future career opportunities. The time and money needed to earn the degree, however, were a little harder to commit. I wanted a larger school with name recognition. I made some preliminary cost comparisons amongst all the MBA players in the metro area and found the OSU MBA in Portland to be the best value.
