The LEMBA Experience

A Business Ethics MBA That Prepares You to Lead with Your Values

The Leadership Executive MBA program does more than prepare you for a promotion. With a business ethics MBA, you will take your leadership and values to a whole new level. Our faculty can not only teach you new skills but also help you identify your authentic strengths and values to lead with purpose and integrity.

When you are looking for MBA sustainability, the Leadership Executive MBA program has been ranked among the top Executive MBA programs in the country since its inception in 2006, and is consistently ranked the top EMBA program in the Pacific Northwest.*

Business Ethics MBA for the Whole Person

We weren't just being taught how to write a pro forma or how to do statistical regression; we learned how to be better human beings through our leadership. This program changed my life, truly. It made me a better person and a better professional.

Dayna Eden, LEMBA '16 Chief People Officer, Aviation Technical Services

This program gave me the tools and the confidence to step into more fulfilling leadership roles and pursue tough goals. It gave me visibility into how to think about an enterprise at a very broad level. I am now leading an organization as a Chief Executive and that is something I would not have pursued were it not for the LEMBA program.

More Than a Business Ethics MBA

If you’re looking to improve your business acumen and your leadership skills, and to gain confidence, I highly recommend the Seattle U Executive MBA program because that’s exactly what it did for me.

Orla Concannon, LEMBA '15, describes her experience in the Leadership Executive MBA program.

EMPLOYER PERSPECTIVE: At Expeditors we have seen a major change in our high-level managers evolving into true leaders after attending Seattle University's Executive Education Programs. It is not just about leading your company, but about being a leader in your community.

Dan Wall, LEMBA '08 President, Global Products, Expeditors International of Washington, Inc.

EMPLOYER PERSPECTIVE: Costco employees who have graduated from the LEMBA program have learned to integrate core business concepts. However, their ability to do so with broader notions of global connectedness, social responsibility and the interdependence of nations, industries, and people in mind has made them stand out as leaders within our company.

Pat Callans Executive Vice President, Costco Wholesale

What I gained personally from my LEMBA experience far exceeded my initial expectations and goals. In addition to a greater sense of my own efficacy, I found an indelible sense of belonging to a “commons” of fellow learners who, as alumni, still support each other in our personal and professional endeavors.

Heather Flanagan, LEMBA '17 Executive Coach and Cultural Strategist

The EMBA program at Seattle University is more than just a business degree. This program will teach you about leadership, provide a new sense of self, and define purpose with amazing clarity.
