Undergraduate Leadership Program

You want to be a leader

On campus. In business. In your community. In athletics.

Albers Undergraduate Leadership Program

The Albers Undergraduate Leadership Program is a unique opportunity for Albers first and second years to explore theory, analyze cases, and propose solutions.

The program consists of two courses:

BUAD 2820: Leadership Development I (WQ, three credits)

A five-week intensive course for Albers students to explore leadership theories and cases and identify opportunities for personal leadership development

BUAD 2830: Leadership Development II (SQ, two credits)

A four-week intensive course for Albers students to craft a proposal for real change and to present it to stakeholders and decision-makers

Both courses must be taken for credit to be earned. Admission is competitive and enrollment is by invitation only.

After completing the series, you’ll enjoy further benefits:

  • Membership of a network of Albers students seeking and holding leadership positions on campus, in business, in their communities, and in athletics
  • Participation in the Albers Mentorship Program to connect you with an industry mentor in your junior year (rather than your senior year)
  • Special recognition at graduation for your leadership contributions to student life

The Undergraduate Leadership Program gave me the tools to unlock my full potential as a leader who encourages success on the pool deck, in the classroom, and in my greater campus community. The skills I developed from the program have helped me make an impact at Seattle U, and I’m eager to apply these skills to my professional career.

Participating in the Albers Undergraduate Leadership Program gave me the mindset and skills I needed to develop as an emerging leader and provided me with a community of peers who share a desire to become leaders to bring about change. I gained hands-on leadership experience and increased my career capital.

UGL has given me the opportunity to identify my strengths and work on my weaknesses within an organization of elite Albers students. For me personally, it has helped me immensely with my confidence to speak to superiors and network with community leaders.
