Tuition includes a single room, some meals, and materials, along with administrative and faculty support for inter-session assignments. Admission to PCBS is granted after review of an applicant’s online or paper application, and receipt of the registration fee, which is non-refundable. Once an applicant is accepted and has paid the full tuition amount, room reservations will be secured and applicants will begin to receive other communications from PCBS.

All classes, meals, and rooms for PCBS students are located on the University of Washington campus, set in the scenic Pacific Northwest on the shores of Lake Washington. PCBS session attendees share a rich classroom experience while enjoying the natural beauty and excitement of one of the country’s most beautiful destinations.

Earn MBA Credits:

In conjunction with the University of Washington, a PCBS graduate can earn credits toward an MBA. This opportunity must be arranged at the time of graduation from the program.

Time Commitment:

There are three resident sessions, five written inter-session assignments, and one management report that are completed within an elapsed time of two years and two weeks. While each student is different, it takes an average of 30 hours to complete an inter-session assignment and approximately 100 hours to complete the management report. Inter-session work is completed between sessions, which involves completing assignments based on core class material and presentations.
