Upcoming EMBA events

Class Visits

One of the best ways to truly appreciate the level and intensity of interaction and discussion in the Executive MBA classroom is to experience it yourself through an EMBA Class Visit.

We suggest requesting a class visit two weeks in advance so that we can ensure you receive driving and parking information and class materials. While we do our best to accommodate each request, we are limited by classroom seating capacity, current EMBA Student Host availability, and professors’ daily teaching agenda.

For visitors from outside Seattle, we also offer overnight accommodations (when available) at our partner hotel, Silver Cloud Inn – University District (near the University Village). Please make sure to inquire about accommodations when scheduling your EMBA Class Visit.

Recurring events

On a Saturday morning, Seattle traffic and UW campus parking are less hectic. Take an hour for yourself and learn more about the Foster EMBA in a relaxed conversation with admissions staff. Chats include coffee, refreshments and an overview of the program. Bring a resume, or send in advance, to learn how your career trajectory can be even better.
In these small group (limited to 10) sessions, participants meet the director, learn about the Foster EMBA experience, and enjoy breakfast/lunch. The event includes an EMBA Class Visit.
Experiencing an EMBA class is one of the best ways to understand the EMBA program. Class Visits are offered during the academic year (September through June). We recommend visiting when your preferred program, North America or Regional, is in session. However, you will experience the same dynamic, invigorating learning environment in either class. View a sample North America or Regional class day schedule.
With a hectic life and work schedule, it is not always easy to attend an in-person information session. We offer you the opportunity to participate online.
The Foster School offers three MBA options designed for full-time working professionals. These events include an overview to understand which programs might be best suited to your personal and professional goals. The programs represented include the Evening MBA, Executive MBA, and Technology Management MBA programs.
Designed for potential applicants who have attended an information session or met with an EMBA admission representative, attend an informative one-hour session to learn how to submit your best application.
Is an EMBA right for you? A quick resume evaluation will help you decide.

Executive MBA students enter the program with a great variety of professional experience in a wide range of industries, and that’s great – but it sometimes makes it hard for prospective students to tell if the program is a good match for their background and career goals. If you’re unsure whether you’re a good fit for EMBA, just submit your resume for a quick review. EMBA Admission Director Randell Hernandez will review your professional background. Following the review, we will arrange for a one-on-one meeting or phone conversation with either the Admission Director or Executive Director.

To get started, send us your resume as an email attachment. We’ll take it from there.
