In-Person and Virtual Admit Events

Admitted Student Welcome Weekend

Whether or not you have decided on Foster, we invite you to come to Seattle, experience the UW Campus and get a sense of what it’s like to be a part of our community. We also encourage spouses and significant others to attend with you as you make this important decision on where to pursue your MBA.

Two nights of accommodation will be provided for guests attending from outside of the Seattle area. We will also provide up to a $200 travel stipend reimbursement for each guest attending the event, $200 for the admitted student and $200 for their guest.

Welcome Weekend will provide first-hand knowledge about key features of our program: curriculum, career services, facilities, special programs and student organizations. You’ll also meet faculty, staff, and alumni, and begin to form relationships with both current students and your future classmates.
