Portland State University is a nationally recognized urban university, where the community is more than just where you live, it's where you learn. With a student body of 29,000, Portland State is selected by more students than any other Oregon university. The location in Portland, "America's Best Big City," truly puts students and faculty in the middle of it all. Home to forward-thinking people who cherish the city for its culture, surrounding natural beauty, and livability, Portland is the heart of the Pacific Northwest. The University's urban setting and many community partnerships act as a "living laboratory" that provides diverse opportunities to live, learn, and gain the real world experience that students need to succeed.
The School of Business Administration at Portland State is the largest and most diverse business school in Oregon and also in Northwest, with nearly 3000 undergraduates and 475 graduates studying business. It was ranked 22nd in the world and 15th in the US by Beyond Grey Pinstripes for its emphasis on social and environmental stewardship within the MBA curriculum. The location of the school puts Portland's business community in its backyard, resulting in better career networking, more internships and richer real world classroom experiences.
