The School is AACSB-accredited, has a strong commitment to both research and teaching, and serves over 3,400 students. The School was recently ranked by the Princeton Review as “one of the best universities to major in business,“ and in 2015, Portland State University was ranked by U.S. News and World Report in the top 20 “most innovative” universities in the nation. The university is dispersed over 49 acres of greenspace amidst the cultural and business center of downtown Portland. Portland is a thriving city of natural beauty considered to be a model for livability, environmental stewardship, and new urbanism principles. Portland is consistently ranked as one of the “best places to live” in the U.S., and is located within a 90 minute drive of mountains and the Oregon coast.
