BusinessWeek has ranked the Albers School’s part-time MBA program among the top 25 in the nation. Albers is the only school ranked in the Northwest and number six among the programs in the West that made the list. It’s the first time Albers’ part-time program has been ranked in the publication. 

"The BusinessWeek ranking is a well-deserved recognition of the excellent work of our faculty and staff in our graduate business programs,” said Joe Phillips, dean of the Albers School. “Among the various rankings, it uses one of the more rigorous rating systems, which makes a strong statement about the growing reputation of Seattle University.”

The BusinessWeek rankings are based on a sophisticated set of metrics, which includes a survey of students, an academic quality score and a measure of post-graduation outcomes.

Earlier this year, the Albers program was ranked 24th by U.S. News & World Report’s “America's Best Graduate Schools 2010.”

Nearly 700 students are enrolled in the part-time MBA program at Albers.
