About Albers

Albers Serves

  • Applying Jesuit Values and Ethics to Business

    Following the Jesuit tradition of educating the whole person, our students work to develop strength of character and compassion in all aspects of life. This foundation of ethics and social responsibility goes beyond personal development, preparing you for ethical leadership in business and the community.

    At Albers, our understanding of social responsibility consists of more than just corporate accountability. Our Jesuit values and ethics, inherent to all coursework, encourage you to take a proactive stance toward resolving greater problems in society. This focus on service and social responsibility extends from the local community to national and global issues.

    The following values are the basis of an Albers education:

    • Honesty and integrity – in everything we do
    • Academic excellence – in teaching, scholarship, and service
    • Inclusiveness & collegiality – fostering a welcoming and open environment; treating others with respect and collaborating toward a shared vision
    • Jesuit mission – growth in persons, education for leadership and service, and commitment to justice
