Evening MBA Resources

This page contains links to some important resources you’ll need as an Evening MBA student in the Foster School.

The Evening MBA Current Student website provides a broad picture of degree requirements, policies, and procedures of the Evening MBA Program. More detailed information pertinent to specific MBA programs and class years is available in the MBA Student Handbook and the Elective Registration Handbook.

MBA Student Handbooks
Each incoming class of MBA students receives information about their MBA Student Handbook at orientation. Updated annually, the handbook provides detailed information on:

  • Degree requirements for your MBA class
  • UW and Foster School of Business policies and procedures
  • Support services within the Foster School of Business and the larger UW community

Student Scholarships

Student scholarships are made possible due to generous donations to the Foster School of Business and are awarded based on specific criteria designated by the donor. The predominant scholarship considerations include MBA academic merit, financial need, leadership, and demonstrated participation in the Foster MBA Program, the UW, and/or the community. 

Evening MBA Students are currently eligible for three scholarships: 

  • Evening MBA Fellowship 
  • African American Heritage MBA Endowed Scholarship 
  • Ernest I.J. Aguilar MBA Endowed Scholarship 

The steps to apply for these scholarships are below. 

Scholarship Opportunities

Foster Evening MBA students can take advantage of financial support through the following opportunities. 

Evening MBA Fellowship – This fund was established by former Evening MBA students and is designed to support a 2nd or 3rd year student who is actively involved in the Foster community and is receiving less than 1/3 tuition support from their employer. 

African American Heritage MBA Endowed Scholarship – This fund awards an annual scholarship to an African American student at the Foster School of Business. The scholarship recipient will work with the Consulting and Business Development Center to provide consulting assistance to support the growth of African American-owned businesses in Washington. The criteria for selection are academic merit, with a preference for students with financial need (as demonstrated by the FAFSA). 

Ernest I.J. Aguilar MBA Endowed Scholarship – Named after the founder of the Washington State Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, this scholarship was established as a partnership between the Latino community and the University of Washington. It is the first endowed scholarship for Latino MBA students in the nation. Scholarship recipients will work with the Consulting and Business Development Center to provide consulting assistance to support the growth of Latino-owned businesses in Washington. Recipients are selected based on academic merit and financial need (as demonstrated by the FAFSA), and this is available to students who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents. 

You may apply for these scholarships using the 2024-25 Evening MBA Scholarship Application

Team Room Information
Rooms are Open 24/7

The Foster School of Business uses the EMS system for Foster facility reservations. MBA students can book team rooms on this system here. Current MBA students can find this information on their course Canvas page.

Team Room Scheduling Guidelines:

  • You can reserve team rooms up to 7 days in advance.
  • These rooms are to be reserved only for group study, not for individual use. Groups have priority to use the room over individual students. Individual students should use the Foster Library study carrels.
  • All students are required to wear a mask within the rooms at all times and sanitize the room upon completion of your reservation. Sanitation supplies are supplied in each room. If there are not adequate supplies please reach out to the facilities team at [email protected].
  • On weekdays, there is a 2-hour time limit per group reservation. Note that teams should NOT book a room for back-to-back time blocks.
  • On weekends, there is no time block restriction. Only book what you honestly think your team needs (1 hour, 3 hours, 6 hours, 10 hours, etc.).
  • 3rd floor PACCAR team rooms are unlocked 24/7: you should still make reservations for these rooms. Note that you may be approached by the building managers to verify you are indeed an MBA student and that you are following the UW’s health and safety guidelines. Please comply by giving your name and showing your Husky card.
  • If you do not arrive at your room by 10 minutes after your scheduled start time, your reservation may be cancelled and the room used by walk-up customers.
  • MBA students have priority access to the 3rd-floor PACCAR team rooms. However, if the rooms are not reserved for MBA student use, other students (e.g., undergraduates) are allowed to use the rooms on a walk-up basis. You are also allowed to use unreserved 2nd-floor PACCAR and 1st-floor Dempsey team rooms on a walk-up basis.

The MBA Program reimburses students for two types of travel related to the program: Career Services Sponsored Travel and Case Competition Travel

Career Services Sponsored Travel

Unsponsored MBA students in the Evening, Full-time, and Global MBA programs are eligible to receive up to three reimbursements per year for travel to and from Foster School of Business Road Shows, the NSHMBA/NBMBAA career expos and other approved conferences, or Student-Led treks.

Each reimbursement will not exceed $300, and only qualified expenses will apply. Students must visit companies in geographic regions outside of Washington State, in which they are actively and seriously pursuing relocation post-graduation, in order to be eligible for reimbursement.

Career Management will reimburse students for the following travel expenses up to a total of $300 per trip. We do not reimburse students for hotel expenses, meals, rental cars, or other incidentals.

  • Airfare
  • Rail travel
  • Mileage for trips not involving air or rail travel

Procedures for obtaining approval and reimbursement for Career Management sponsored travel

Case Competition Travel

The MBA Program Office sponsors certain students who have been chosen to participate in select case competitions. We are currently redesigning our sponsorship program; the new policies and procedures will be posted in September. Contact Emily Warren with any questions.
