Representative comments from students and alumni on what's best about this MBA program

The collaborative and supportive culture of our school builds strong relationships and keeps students engaged in the work, even when it can feel especially challenging.

The environment was incredibly collaborative, including with educators and guest lecturers (of which there were many; this connection with the local market was integral for many of our students’ success in their early careers).

Professors were fantastic, peers were collaborative, and I left with a real network of professionals I know personally (vs. a list of alumni that may/may not actually help with career opportunities).

I loved my time at Foster because of how collaborative the program is. It really felt like our whole class was pulling for each other and genuinely wanted each other to succeed.

The connections into every aspect of the Seattle business community. VC, Startups, Tech, Nonprofit, Logistics, Retail—connections everywhere.
