For more than seventy years, the Albers School of Business & Economics has graduated thousands of notable Albers alumni. These alumni are known for their inspiring professionalism and dedication to transforming the world for better, both in their companies and in their communities.
Here you’ll find many ways to stay connected and get involved with Albers alums in celebrating and sharing in the stories of our collective success and citizenship. Whether you are seeking to mentor the next generation of Albers students toward successful careers, participate in an advisory board role, or are looking to attend our next annual Crab Feed–an alumni-favorite get-together and fundraiser— we look forward to connecting with you.
If you only knew Jerod Pierce (‘08 BABA finance and business economics) as an adult, you would be surprised to learn that he had a very rough childhood. But with the support of many people throughout his early years, he went on to graduate from Seattle University and Harvard Business School and own a very successful business in Tacoma. Read more about his success story in the Spring 2019 issue of the Albers Brief.
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 of current and former students and the audience. Many alumni attend the Albers Executive Speaker Series to learn from the speakers, network, and see old friends and colleagues.
Join the Albers Alumni Board at our delicious annual fundraiser that supports the Albers Alumni Endowed Scholarship Fund: providing assistance to bright and motivated Albers students who will become tomorrow’s ethical business leaders. We raised nearly $100,000 in 2019. Help beat that record at the upcoming Crab Feed on Friday, April 3, 2020!

Whether for an internship or a full-time job, with an Albers graduate you will get a dedicated employee who will become a leader not only in your organization but also in your community.
