Class Profile

The Foster MBA is one of the 20 most competitive programs in the nation in terms of admissions standards. The students like it that way. They know that individual success depends on having high performers on the team. Here, students are chosen not only for work and life experience, but also for their ability to transcend personal interests and contribute to the team. Those high standards pay off: the caliber of students in the program and their average six years of work experience enrich the learning for everyone.
