The Leadership Executive MBA Admissions Committee evaluates each application and makes decisions based on a candidate’s entire portfolio including past academic performance, recommendations, work experience, and a statement of intent. In addition, because the cohort model of this program requires significant group work, the committee looks for evidence of effective participation in team environments.

An Application for Graduate Admission must be completed and submitted by applicants along with a $55 non-refundable application fee (fee waived for Seattle University alumni). Requirements for admission are outlined below; international students should contact the recruiter regarding additional requirements.

The LEMBA program provided me with the foundation and the tools to be more effective in operations. It gave me the underpinnings to evaluate and help further develop our strategy as well as the leadership piece to carry that through the organization.
