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

Global Study Tours

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. We’ve met companies ranging from General Electric in Singapore and BMW in Munich to an e-home automation startup in Dubai. Participation in a study tour is optional.

Think like an entrepreneur

Beyond the classroom, TMMBA students can take advantage of a variety of entrepreneurial opportunities, speaker events, and business competitions, including the Health Innovation Challenge, Environmental Innovation Challenge, and Dempsey Startup Competition through the Foster School’s Arthur W. Buerk Center for Entrepreneurship. These competitions are platforms for student-led ventures. They provide student teams with mentoring from entrepreneurs and investors, the opportunity to tell their stories to the Seattle startup community, and the visibility they need to get going. In addition, as part of the required TMMBA coursework, students will create a business plan and investor pitch and take part in an annual Investor Expo.
