Weekly in-person instruction at our home in historic Pioneer Square in downtown Seattle.
The Metro MBA curriculum covers traditional business fundamentals—economics, accounting, finance, marketing, operations and strategy—all through the lens of sustainability. Students learn conventional and non-conventional theory, while working in teams on real-world applied projects in virtually every class. As a capstone sequence, students undertake a project in entrepreneurship or intrapreneurship. In the second year of the program, students also have a number of elective options, including study abroad, a residential program on creativity and innovation, concentrations in finance or cooperative management, or deeper engagement in organizational leadership through the ALP course sequence in the Seattle Hybrid MBA program.
Courses are conducted chiefly in person in weekly evening classes, with distance learning technology used as an additional resource where helpful for course management and inclusion of guest speakers. Students can also expect to take hybrid-format elective courses along with the Hybrid MBA students.
A two-year course on Leadership and Personal Development (LPD) rounds out the curriculum by helping students develop the leadership skills necessary to lead their organizations to a sustainable future.
The recommended course sequence for the Seattle Metro MBA Program:
Students complete two elective courses as part of the Seattle Metro MBA program. Students may elect to take electives of their choice, or to complete elective sequences in Cooperative Management, Finance or Organizational Leadership.
