Strategic thinking, leadership, and global business underlie the Foster MBA core curriculum. In just under two years, the program offers five core courses, one leadership development course, and 11 elective courses. Year one curriculum offers an integrated core of fundamental business concepts, skills, and tools. Year two curriculum focuses on personal career objectives and developing greater expertise in areas directly related to a post-MBA career.

In addition to the core and elective coursework, each student must complete two activities that provide an international or global perspective.  Examples are MBA courses that focus on international topics, non-MBA courses with an international focus, study abroad, international study tours, or completion of an internationally focused internship or project.

Completion of three practical experience activities is also required in order to obtain the Foster MBA degree.  These are activities designed to expose students to actual business situations in new or established organizations and may include summer internships and consulting projects.

Ranking Analysis:

The University of Washington’s Foster School fell eight places to a rank of 40th in 2011 from 32 a year earlier in PoetsandQuants’ ranking of the top 100 MBA programs in the U.S. The decline in Foster’s standing can largely be attributed to The Financial Times which failed to include the school in its 2011 ranking. A year earlier, the FT ranked Foster 78 on its global list. The school also fell four places in U.S. News’ 2011 ranking, dropping to 37th place from 33rd in 2010.
