Every fall, a diverse Bridge MBA class gathers from throughout the Pacific Northwest and the world to experience the advantages of Albers’s unwavering commitment to developing ethical business leaders.

The Albers Bridge MBA is a one year, full-time, campus based program that not only provides you the strong academic foundation of an Albers MBA, but also the hands-on experience you’ll need to succeed in the next stage of your career. You’ll benefit from our deep network of connections in Seattle's vibrant business community and our proximity to the global headquarters of influential multinational firms. Upon graduation, you’ll be prepared for any job market.


The Bridge MBA was designed for you—a recent graduate with a non-business undergraduate degree and limited work experience looking to combine your undergraduate degree with a valuable business education to advance your career. Join Albers’ Bridge MBA to gain the business acumen that will fast-track your career journey and provide you with an important foundation of knowledge to serve you for a lifetime.

Bridge MBA Class Profile


Emily Barr, Bridge MBA '17

I chose the Bridge MBA because as an undergraduate alumni of Seattle University, I wanted to continue learning in an atmosphere surrounded by leaders who 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!
