Admission Requirements

Each June, the Michael G. Foster School of Business selects individuals for admission to the MS in Entrepreneurship program who are looking to hone their business skills, develop entrepreneurial expertise, and gain experience from Seattle founders. These applicants have demonstrated the greatest capacity for high-quality academic work and will contribute to the diversity of both the student body and the Seattle entrepreneurial community. Applicants will be selected not only for their potential to benefit from the program but also for the experiences and knowledge they can contribute to the class. Applicants are expected to demonstrate strong written and verbal communication skills and solid skills in quantitative analysis. All aspects of your application, including the fulfillment of the admission requirements, are subject to verification.

Degree Requirements

Foster MS in Entrepreneurship applicants must have completed the equivalent of a four-year U.S. bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited college or university. The minimum GPA is 3.0 for the last 90-quarter or 60-semester credits. Studies conducted outside of the U.S. do not need to be converted to a four point scale, but transcripts should be translated to English.

We review each applicant’s undergraduate history, taking note of the difficulty of the curriculum, the scholastic quality of the school, and the existence of any social or economic disadvantage that may have affected past academic performance. Your prior scholastic performance should indicate an ability to complete graduate level work.
