    About Washington State University: Founded in 1890 in Pullman, WSU is the state of Washington's land-grant institution and one of the country's top public research universities. WSU has an enrollment of over 31,000 undergraduate, graduate, and professional students and approximately 6,500 faculty and staff at its five campuses (Pullman, Spokane, Tri-Cities, Vancouver, and Everett), and online through its Global Campus. Unlike most multi-campus systems, WSU operates as an integrated university; thus, regardless of campus location, all MISE faculty are full members of the MISE department. The business curricula at all five campuses are accredited as one curriculum by the AACSB (AACSB accreditation was renewed for five years in 2019).

    WSU is a premier research institution, ranked as a "very high research activity" (R1) by the Carnegie Foundation, with ambitions to grow. The university is currently pursuing its goal of becoming one of the nation's top 25 public research universities by 2030 through its "Drive to 25" or "D25" initiative. D25 is the University's highest strategic priority.

Recently, the department placed in the top-20 in the 2019 Global Entrepreneurship Research Productivity Rankings based on publications in JBV, ETP, and SEJ over the past 5-year period.  Across all campuses, the MISE Department includes 11 tenure-track faculty holding appointments in management and/or entrepreneurship with substantial plans to grow the department and its core strength in entrepreneurship.
