The Seattle U Bridge MBA has been a great way to further my education and develop a foundation in business. This program has made an enriched impact in conjunction with my degree in Communication Studies, and the course work has given me the knowledge and skills I was yearning to develop.Caroline Engs Bridge MBA Class of 2017
The Bridge MBA helped me build networks in the US. As an international student with a non-business degree, I don't really have connections to get me around the business realm. With the required networking events, I am provided with connections to easily navigate around this field.Janika Faye Le Penia Bridge MBA Class of 2017

I chose the Bridge MBA because as an undergraduate alumni of Seattle University, I wanted to continue learning in an atmosphere surrounded by leaders that employ the Seattle University mission statement: “[leaders]…dedicated to educating the whole person, to professional formation…for a just and humane world". This program was a perfect business fit to complement my undergraduate background in hard sciences!
The Bridge MBA program at Albers is focused on the endgame, which is for students to attain that first job . Some students have a position secured before graduation; others take longer to find the perfect fit. But Albers is dedicated to providing each Bridge MBA alum with the skills necessary to launch a successful career after graduation.
