Curriculum

Designed for the agile technology sector, the TMMBA curriculum focuses on relevant, evidence-based challenges, so students can learn a concept one day and apply it at work the next. Course content typically focuses on technology companies, products, and innovations, and is grounded in executive management, strategy and leadership principles, theories, and frameworks. Hands-on case analysis allows students to examine real-world business challenges and learn how to best evaluate a situation by applying concepts and strategies acquired throughout the program.

My study group is made up of six individuals with diverse professional experience. Our range of specialization has been beneficial to the learning experience because each individual has unique strengths to contribute to assignments and group discussions.

Students often cite their study groups as a key benefit to supporting the fast-paced nature of the TMMBA. Each study group consists of 4-6 students and is thoughtfully constructed with a diversity of positions, companies, academic backgrounds, and interests in mind. Geography is also taken into account so that convenient meeting locations can be more easily determined. Study groups offer support, expanding perspectives, lasting friendships, and professional contacts, and are critical to successfully completing this 18-month, full-course load design.

Go global on a study tour

The international study tour prepares you to think globally. TMMBA has traveled around the world from the Great Wall in China to Machu Picchu in Peru. We’ve met companies ranging from General Electric in Singapore and BMW in Munich to an e-home automation startup in Dubai. Participation in a study tour is optional.

Today’s cutting-edge companies of all sizes look beyond the status quo for innovative thinking. The TMMBA program equips you with classes such as:

Beyond the classroom, TMMBA students can take advantage of a variety of entrepreneurial opportunities, speaker events, and competitions, including the Health Innovation Challenge, Environmental Innovation Challenge, and Business Plan Competition through the Foster School’s Arthur W. Buerk Center for Entrepreneurship. These competitions are platforms for student-led ventures. They provide student teams with mentoring from entrepreneurs and investors, the opportunity to tell their stories to the Seattle startup community, and the visibility they need to get going. In addition, as part of the required TMMBA coursework, students will create a business plan and investor pitch and take part in an annual Investor Expo.
