Seattle University

Seattle University is located a short distance from downtown in the city’s Capitol Hill district.  Like Gonzaga, Seattle is an old Jesuit Catholic university with a distinguished reputation.  The Albers School of Business and Economics offers full-time and part-time MBA options which require 55 to 73 credits to complete depending on student qualifications and the specific curriculum chosen.
  The college offers a “Bridge” MBA program for early career professionals and a “Professional” MBA program for mid-career students, as well as an Executive MBA and Health Care MBA.  Concentrations are offered in Accounting, Business Valuation, Sustainability, Leadership, and Entrepreneurship.  The wide variety of program options is a benefit to students seeking a more highly customized business education.   Seattle University also boasts some impressive rankings, including being the #2 part-time MBA program in the Northwest, according to Business Week

The Life:  Location!  Location!  Location!  For a working professional who spends his or her days in downtown Seattle, this is as good as it gets.  Capitol Hill restaurants and markets are a bonanza for students on the go.  Downtown entertainments are close within reach.

Drawbacks:  Seattle University is expensive compared to its closest cousins in our MBA ranking, Gonzaga and University of Portland, though still less than UW.  Tuition, books, and fees for a 55 credit MBA will cost in the neighborhood $45,000 and take between 18 and 24 months to complete.

  1. Choosing a finance specialization for a Btech (IT) graduate is not a problem at all. In the industry, such a combination of Engineering in IT + MBA in Finance is considered as one of the best career paths.
