Degree Requirements


from Seattle University's 2017-2018 Graduate Catalog

The program is designed as a 12 month, full-time cohort program requiring the completion of 48 credits including 14 three-credit courses and a six-credit capstone course.

I. Preparatory Work

Students must have completed satisfactory coursework in financial accounting, spreadsheet analysis (excel) and statistics prior to enrollment.

Typically once a student is accepted, they complete any needed prerequisites via Harvard Online courses.  The Bridge MBA program works with all incoming students to identify which Harvard Online classes they will need to complete. Proficiency can be established by previous credit course work in these topics with a grade of B (3.00) or higher, or successful completion of a statistics or financial accounting course offered by the Albers School. Please contact Christina Hughes at with any questions.
