The right mix of rigor and relevance

TMMBA classes are cultivated and taught by world-class faculty. The UW Foster School of Business is ranked #4 in world for research and productivity. Our faculty do a remarkable job at bringing their rigorous evidence-based research down from the 40,000-foot level and present it in a relevant and real-world context. Designed so students can learn concepts one day and apply them the next. Lively discussions, stimulating readings and case study analyses focus on real-life business challenges, products, and innovations. The overall course content is grounded in executive management, strategy and leadership principles, theories, and frameworks.

To complement your executive management education, we offer a variety of workshops to complement the academic experience. Topics in public speaking, presentations, teamwork and personal branding position students to take the next step in their careers.

Varied approach to teaching and learning

Recognizing students synthesize concepts and frameworks differently, faculty utilize a variety of methods to energize and deepen student learning, including:

  • Dynamic class discussions
  • Individual and group projects, presentations, and case analyses
  • Real-world case studies connecting theory and application
  • Faculty-endorsed business articles, books, and other reading materials
  • Informative video content as foundational material
Classroom experience

World-class instructors develop students with evidence-based research and practical application of business principals.

Students often cite their learning teams as a key benefit to supporting the fast-paced nature of the TMMBA. Each learning team consists of 4-6 students and is thoughtfully constructed with a diversity of positions, companies, academic backgrounds, and interests in mind. TMMBA learning teams offer support, expanding perspectives, lasting friendships, a strong professional network, and are critical to successfully completing this accelerated, 18-month, MBA program.

The international study tour prepares you to think globally. TMMBA has traveled around the world from the Great Wall in China to Machu Picchu in Peru.
