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.
Sponsored by the dean's office, the Albers Executive Speaker Series is offered twice a quarter in the fall, winter, and spring. Executives from around the Puget Sound region are invited to speak on a topic of their choice and then respond to questions from a selected panel and the audience. These events are an excellent opportunity for students across the Seattle University campus to learn from the leaders in our region. The Albers Executive Speaker Series is free and open to the public.
