Part-time MBA Costs and Return on Investment

Why earn an MBA? For many individuals, it's to build leadership skills, improve job prospects, expand career opportunities, and grow a professional network. The average MBA salary in Washington state, according to ZipRecruiter, is $95,694, the highest among all states surveyed and 15.7% above the national average which is $82,721.

Despite these promising returns, earning an MBA is still a serious financial commitment. That is why Albers built its MBA program to provide as much ROI as possible.

  • Our PMBA's fees are nearly half the cost of the evening MBA offered by a big Washington university.
  • Albers has a dedicated placement center with an acclaimed 31-year-old mentor program, professional development workshops, networking events, and more.
  • Our Innovation & Entrepreneurship Center's business plan competition and other initiatives provide aspiring startup founders valuable tools and contacts to validate their business ideas.
  • The Executive Speaker Series and The Leadership Playbook podcast are just two ways we bring the best of the Seattle business world to our students.
  • Albers alumni actively engage in the school's activities, including serving on advisory boards that help shape curriculum that current market needs.
