Visiting Executive Program

“One of my objectives was to have the chance to study the foundation of business theories and methods systematically. I was able to do this through the Executive Development Program, part of the Management Track of VEP.”

— Summer 2011 graduate from Japan

The Visiting Executive Program (VEP) is designed for the international professional who desires an individualized program of study in management education at the Michael G. Foster School of Business at the University of Washington. Since 1985, the Visiting Executive Program has welcomed more than 100 executives from large and small companies around the world into this flexible, easily customized executive education program.

Unique among the international offerings of UW Executive Education, VEP is especially useful to professionals for whom a degree program does not provide enough flexibility to study a particular subject area in depth, or for whom a three- to twelve-month certificate program is preferable to a two-year MBA program.

The Visiting Executive Program provides participants with a J-1 visa and all the privileges a Visiting Scholar receives, including UW library and computer database access; use of an office with computer, internet and phone; transportation and parking passes; membership to the UW Club for private on-campus dining, and other University-related benefits.

Upon finishing the program, the participant is awarded a VEP Certificate of Completion from the Foster School of Business.
