See what students say:


The Albers School of Business and Economics at Seattle University is a “unique” and “well-structured” program with a strong “Jesuit tradition” on a “beautiful campus in an economically thriving city.” In short, it is a “diamond in the rough.” Located “in the heart of Seattle Metro Area,” Albers “has a diverse cultural set of faculty, students, and staff.” The Seattle location is especially attractive for MBA students as many major American companies like Amazon, T-Mobile, Microsoft, and Starbucks are based here. The Albers MBA program builds a “strong sense of community,” and its unique “focus on social justice” and “strong core values” are baked into “every aspect of the school.”

Students praise the “convenience and flexibility” of the program and call it a “great program for working professionals.” For example, “classes [are] offered at night in two locations” and students are allowed “up to five years to finish coursework (which helps for students that work full time & have families).” The school also has a new “Bridge MBA” program that “has classes during the day.” The Bridge MBA is a twelve-month program aimed at helping non-business undergraduates get a jumpstart on their business careers.

The professors at SU “are amazing” and “willing to spend time with you so that you understand the materials.” “I have been happy with every professor I have had, and many of them have been outstanding,” one student attests. Most of the teachers here “have worked in business so can relate real world experiences to classroom work.” Students say that the administration is “very open and willing to help,” and provide “abundant” “opportunities to tweak the program” to student needs. Students also praise the school’s efforts “helping students network.” “They often host events outside of school and off campus to help students get together and network and socialize,” one student explains. Another sums up his experience at Albers: “The actual academic program at Seattle U has exceeded my expectations, and I truly believe I’m getting a great return on my investment.”
