A Great Education in a Great Environment!
It was a prominent group of regional bankers and educators from the University of
Washington Graduate School of Business Administration who created the Pacific Coast
Banking School back in 1938. Since then, the University of Washington has continued
to be a key player in the success of PCBS. Members of their distinguished faculty
have contributed to the development and delivery of our outstanding curriculum and
classes have been held each summer for 78 years in the ivy-covered halls which surround
the beautiful UW campus here in Seattle.

Famous mountains are just the beginning! Founded in 1861, the University of Washington is the oldest state university in the west. On 660 acres of park-like grounds overlooking scenic Lake Washington and magnificent Mt. Rainier, students can wander through the noteworthy Henry Art Gallery and Burke Museum or Seattle's renowned Arboretum.
