Its goal is to promote economic growth in the state by providing a thorough and objective discussion and analysis of the issues and trends affecting Alaska's business sector; and by featuring stories on the individuals, organizations, and companies that shape the Alaska economy.

Alaska Business Monthly emphasizes the importance of all enterprises, from the large multinational corporations that do business in the state to the numerous sole proprietorships. It stresses a statewide approach to business coverage with stories from all regions of the state and offers topical diversity just as broad as the Alaska economy itself."
