Albers is accredited by AACSB International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. As of July 2014, less than five percent of the world’s business schools and less than one third of U.S. business schools have achieved business accreditation from AACSB.
This selective program offers a Business and Law degree in six years. Freshman students apply for the BABA, major in Business and Law at the same time as they are applying to Seattle University. Students who are selected for this program are guaranteed admission to Seattle University Law School by meeting the median LSAT score and GPA of the previous entering class after completing three years in the Albers School of Business and Economics. Although not guaranteed admission to the School of Law, students with less than the target medians will still be considered for admission to the program. Students must also demonstrate appropriate temperament and character for success in the legal profession. Participants in the program must have a high-school GPA of 3.5 and maintain a 3.5 throughout their 3 year UG experience. In addition, they must apply to the law school by December of their Junior year with adequate LSAT scores.
