There are many places to pursue graduate education. Even with SPU’s School of Business, Government, and Economics’ highest AACSB accreditation and the unique offerings of the MAMSSM program, some might argue that you can pursue a Master’s degree in business anywhere. However, the opportunities that Seattle provides are irreplaceable.
Seattle’s thriving marketplace is an ever growing hub of opportunity. Well known for Microsoft, Amazon, Boeing, and Starbucks, this is just the tip of the iceberg when looking at business opportunities in Seattle and the surrounding area. The region is bursting with creative business as startups and entrepreneurs step into a receptive and active business environment.
This prime location for international exchange also highlights Seattle’s global reach and social conscience. Social enterprise and global health are built into the fabric of the city, with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, PATH, and World Vision being a few of many organizations leading the charge. For-profit companies take social issues and sustainability seriously as companies seek to consider how their work can address the many needs surrounding us.
If simply noting these industries and the benefits of their presence wasn’t enticing enough, the real gift of the program is this: MAMSSM professors and staff have connections to Seattle companies and opportunities to leverage this business landscape built into the program!
There is no better place for business relationships engaging in social and sustainable management. Since the program fosters professional development and teaches confidence in networking and interpersonal communication with the utmost excellence and success, this amazing city offers a world of connections. The relationships that can be built in this city through this program give MAMSSM an emerald glow that shines brighter than all the rest.
