Washington State University (WSU) and the Washington State University Foundation stand on the cusp of an era of unprecedented success. Through its multi-campus, statewide locations and online presence, WSU is transforming lives through education, research and community outreach. In the environment of an economically booming state with an enviable corporate presence — think Boeing, Amazon, Microsoft, and Costco, among others — and a compelling land-grant mission focused on the STEM disciplines, WSU is well poised for a robust future. The University strives to ensure that higher education is accessible at an affordable cost — a decades-long WSU commitment to the state’s residents.

The Carson College of Business equips undergraduate and graduate students to lead enterprises successfully. In classrooms that simulate enterprise environments, in the organizations of corporate partners, and in locations around the world, Carson students learn by doing. The curriculum bridges disciplines and cultures. Successful business leaders travel to campus to share their expertise. As undergraduates, students gain first-hand career experience and emerge as capable decision-makers, ready to take the reins of leadership.
