Gonzaga's MBA students hit the ground running with a six-week pre-session in the summer that prepares them for the first-year core requirements. Students take their required classes in cohorts, creating a small learning environment. Gonzaga Business has nine concentration areas, including ethics, tax, sports management and finance. The school also hosts a specialized American Entrepreneurship MBA, designed for students who want to manage businesses on Native American reservations.
Gonzaga has limited graduate housing, so most student live around the university. The cost of living in Spokane is cheap, and MBA students form a close-knit community, gathering at local bars to blow off steam after class. Gonzaga's surrounding parks and rivers also make the school a hotspot for outdoors lovers, with easy access to hiking, biking and canoeing.
