New program designed for those without a background in business

The Albers School of Business and Economics at Seattle University has announced plans to launch a new one-year MBA program for recent graduates.

The new program is called "Bridge MBA" and caters to recent graduates with limited work experience who do not have a background in business. The program does require students to have a  knowledge of statistics, spreadsheet skills, and financial accounting, but these requirements can be fulfilled by taking summer classes or completing self-study modules before the start of the program.

The curriculum is divided into four holistic thematic areas, with one covered each quarter: Language of Business, Analytical Process, Decision-Making, and Integration.

For more information, please see this Seattle University press release announcing the Bridge MBA program.
