Make a New Home in Portland State’s Graduate Business Programs

The decision to close Concordia University is a tremendous loss for our region. Concordia students, faculty, and staff are known for their passionate approach to business practice and commitment to compassion in the workplace and Portland. As a similarly mission-driven institution, we believe that the faculty and staff at Concordia share our dedication to and passion for creating transformational experiences for students, and we are prepared to support the work they began by creating a path for Concordia students into our graduate business programs.

To best serve the needs of current Concordia students, our staff and faculty are working quickly to outline a comprehensive plan for those seeking to transfer into our programs.  

For newly admitted Concordia students, we are accepting applications for full-time and part-time Fall 2020 admission, and would be happy to assist you with the application and transition process through one of the informational or advising options outlined below.  

Within our graduate business department, we offer six top-ranked programs and six standalone certificates. We encourage you to explore all our offerings. In particular, information about transferring to and applying to The Portland MBA are listed below.
