Seattle Pacific University School of Business and Economics

Introduction

Welcome to the School of Business and Economics at Seattle Pacific University.

This is a strategic moment for students of business. With the ever-increasing globalization of commerce, business is poised to play a major role in shaping the character of our world for decades to come. In the recent past, however, many business schools have focused almost entirely on maximizing profits and have limited their instruction to the development of value-neutral skill sets. In my judgment, this one-dimensional education is simply inadequate to the challenges that lie ahead.

The School of Business and Economics at Seattle Pacific University is committed to providing a high-quality business education through the lens of Christian faith and values. We are committed to the principle that for a person to be good in business, he or she must be both a highly competent person and a person of high moral character. Nationally accredited by the AACSB, the School delivers a business education distinguished by its emphasis on applied learning and infused with an emphasis on ethics and values throughout. Rather than approaching business as just a means of generating shareholder wealth we ask our students to consider "another way of doing business" - an approach that sees business as a tool for service to the community and to the world.
