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 74 years in the ivy-covered halls which surround the beautiful UW campus here in Seattle.
The University of Washington
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.
After-class recreation includes tennis, racquetball, baseball, swimming, sailing, canoeing, movies and golfing - all conveniently located on campus or nearby. Seattle's fascinating communities offer plenty of opportunities for photography, shopping, or simply kicking back and taking in the fresh air and ideal summer weather of the incredible Pacific Northwest.
