Alumni Profile

Samantha Garrard, '16, '17, MBA

Bridge MBA
Albers School of Business and Economics

Fresh out of college, Samantha Garrard appeared to be headed for a career in public policy or government work—with a bachelor’s degree in public affairs and an internship with Sen. Patty Murray to her credit. But first, she wanted to round out her skill set. Seattle University’s Bridge MBA was the perfect opportunity. The one-year program broadened more than Garrard’s knowledge—it broadened her way of thinking. Now working for a nationally recognized health care company in Seattle, she credits Seattle U’s small classes and personalized teaching for helping facilitate her success.
