In just 18 months, you can earn an MBA degree from the University of Washington while working full time. The Technology Management MBA Program kicks off with a Welcome Reception in early November followed by an Orientation Night in mid November. Students also participate in Program Immersion Week November 26 – December 2. Attendance is required at all of these program events. Classes begin in January and end the following June, with time out of class between each quarter.
Evening and weekend classes let you work full-time
You’ll have class weekly on either Monday or Wednesday from 6:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. We serve dinner at 5:00, so you can come straight from work and catch up with your study team. You’ll also meet ten Saturdays per quarter, typically alternating between half day and full day classes, with breakfast and lunch catered by us.
Events offer immersion
In addition to your weekly class meetings, you’ll have up to three special events:
Prior to the first quarter you’ll take part in the Program Immersion Week. During this time you’ll take eight credits of coursework in a condensed seven-day schedule. Classes take place on the Eastside, UW Campus.
Prior to autumn quarter, you’ll take part in a Leadership Immersion. Students participate in leadership and management simulations and delve into critical issues like team-building and motivating employees.
For a global business perspective, we also offer an optional International Study Tour in the spring of the second year.
Class attendance and work-related travel
Class attendance and participation are a required part of the TMMBA Program. A great deal of learning takes place in the interactive classroom environment; therefore, students are encouraged to be active in each class session. Because TMMBA students are also working professionals, we understand that unexpected travel may occasionally prevent class attendance. Students are encouraged to notify the instructor and their study team in advance of an absence.
