Why Seattle Pacific?
From its inception in 1977, SPU’s School of Business, Government, and Economics has upheld an unwavering dedication to excellence ― quality faculty and curricula, values and ethics, and readying students to impact their professional and personal worlds.
- AACSB Accreditation
Seattle Pacific was the first school of the nearly 100-member Council for Christian Colleges and Universities to achieve the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) distinction. AACSB International represents the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide — 5% of schools globally. As a member, we are part of a united movement to improve the quality of business education around the world, helping to develop the next generation of great leaders. Four out of five alumni from AACSB-accredited schools say their graduate management education contributes to improvements in their competitiveness, proactiveness, innovativeness, and creativity. Also, SPU is rated a Best On-Campus MBA Program and listed as a Best Business School in the West by The Princeton Review.
- Deep Ethics Emphasis
Built on an ethical foundation, the School of Business, Government, and Economics offers first-class business education through the lens of Christian faith and values. Ethical issues are integrated throughout the curriculum, and the SBGE also operates the Center for Integrity in Business.
- Flexible Format
Classes are smaller, and students interact with professors and fellow students in a cooperative and reciprocal learning environment. Responsive and caring faculty encourage students to reach their goals. Our evening courses are designed to accommodate students' work schedules, allowing them to pace their studies to fit their lives.
- Valuable Connections
Students in business programs at SPU have moved on to purposeful careers at local companies and top industries, including Boeing, IBM, Safeco, and the U.S. Coast Guard.
