Diversity Scholarships for MBA Sport and Entertainment Management
MBA SEM is one of five MBA programs offered by Seattle University’s Albers School of Business and Economics. This is a new graduate program in Albers which prepares students for careers in the sport and entertainment industry. Our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) is a hallmark of the MBA SEM, and we are proud to be the first program of its kind to prioritize DEI as a core philosophy. The program is focused on developing professional business leaders from diverse backgrounds, and scholarships allow us to attract and retain diverse students.
The 24-month program aims to develop leadership skills and business acumen and offers an authentic experiential immersion curriculum. Students benefit from the MBA SEM with:
- Close contact, real-world projects with multiple levels of organizational leadership
- Leadership skills and business acumen preparing them for the sport industry professional workplace
- Understanding of venue management and operation, venue sustainability for sports organization and music/entertainment tours, and DEI and anti-racism in sports
Our current cohort is 34% BIPOC and 22% female. Our goal by 2023 is to have 50% BIPOC and 50% female. Gifts to this fund provide scholarships aimed specifically at increasing diversity by assisting BIPOC (or underrepresented) students who are enrolled in the program.
