About Albers

Albers Connects

  • Opportunities for Relevant Experiences

    An Albers education extends beyond the classroom, connecting you with opportunities to learn from the knowledge and guidance of real business leaders. Our experience-based programs allow you to apply what you’ve learned in the classroom to real-world situations. This hands-on experience gives you a distinct advantage when you begin making decisions in the workplace and advancing your career.

    Our close association with the Seattle business community allows us to offer internships, mentorships, and an active alumni network, which you can use to build relationships and gain valuable experience. The programs and resources available through Albers also offer help with job placement, networking, and advising.
