Seattle Pacific University


Another fine option for prospective MBA students in the Seattle area is offered by Seattle Pacific University.  Located north of downtown and Seattle Center in the Queen Anne neighborhood, SPU’s campus is both picturesque and convenient.  The SPU MBA program is primarily designed for part-time, evening studies.  Consisting of ten core courses and five electives, there is plenty of flexibility for students to customize their education with a concentration in one of seven areas.
  Students interested in a more focused management program can look into SPU’s Master of Arts in Management (MAM) program.  SPU is a private, Methodist college and it uniquely offers two “faith-based business” tracks--the MAM in Faith and Business and a joint MBA/MA Theology.  Students in the MBA program itself can expect to complete the program part-time within two years at a cost of around $34,000.  The MBA program is AACSB accredited.

The Life:  Seattle’s Queen Anne district is a charming area of old, stately homes.  It’s a short distance to Seattle Center with its many exhibits and events.  Students will find the best that the Seattle lifestyle has to offer minutes from campus.

Drawbacks:  The SPU MBA is less highly acclaimed than the programs at UW and Seattle University (though it’s also significantly less expensive).
