About Albers

Leadership

  • Welcome to the Albers School of Business and Economics

    At Albers, we are committed to providing our students an integrated business education for ethical and socially responsible leadership, which is inspired by the Jesuit traditions of academic excellence, education for justice, and service to others.

    What does this mean to you as a student? It means that you will learn from faculty who are not only interested in teaching you the fundamentals of their subjects, but also in helping you develop as a person ready to contribute to society in an ethically and socially responsible way. Your coursework will include community service projects, ethics in leadership discussions, and multiple opportunities to learn and grow through connections with executives in the Seattle area business community, such as working with experienced mentors, speaker events, consulting projects, and internships.

    Albers’s small class sizes foster a welcoming and open environment. You will not only learn from your professors, but also from your fellow students. The diversity of the students and faculty at Albers encourages lively debates which allow you to see issues from different points of view. In addition, the low student to faculty ratio affords you the opportunity to work individually with your professors as needed.

    Please take a look at the information presented on our website to learn more about us. We are confident you will find the Albers School to be an exceptional community. We invite you to join us in our mission.
