Lewis & Clark and Portland State Pathway Program

Students majoring in international affairs, history, economics, and world languages and literatures can take advantage of a partnership with Portland State University, which offers an accelerated track for students looking to earn their MBA degree in finance or international management. This program allows students to apply as early as their junior year, securing a place in the graduate program and waiving the GRE and GMAT, as well as the application fee. The program supports successful candidates in their pursuit of career opportunities and provides them with job placement assistance. Many of Portland State’s MBA students go on to work internationally, presenting a unique opportunity for graduates to put the critical-thinking skills and global literacy they develop at Lewis & Clark to good use.

Early Leaders Award Program: Simon Graduate School of Business at the University of Rochester

Regardless of your major, if you are a Lewis & Clark College student who is mature, academically strong, and interested in earning an MBA degree after receiving your Lewis & Clark BA, you have a special opportunity. Through an agreement with the Simon School of Business at the University of Rochester, Lewis & Clark students receive priority consideration for admission to the full-time MBA program. 

As a Lewis & Clark nominee, your application fees are waived, and, if accepted, you receive a minimum $10,000 per year merit-based scholarship. Students are encouraged to apply by the end of their junior year, in part so that pre-MBA internships for accepted students can be provided.
