Schedule

The Technology Management MBA Program kicks off with the Welcome Reception on Friday, November 6 followed by Program Orientation on Saturday, November 7. Students also undertake their first coursework during the Program Immersion Week from Sunday, November 15 through Saturday, November 21. Attendance is required at all of these program events.

Classes begin in January 2021 and end June 2022, with breaks between each quarter.

Evening and weekend classes let you work full-time

You’ll have class weekly on Wednesday from 6:00 p.m. to 9:15 p.m. We serve dinner at 5:00 p.m., so you can come straight from work and catch up with your learning team before class starts. You’ll also meet five Saturdays per quarter, with breakfast and lunch catered by us, and take one two-credit online course per quarter.

New Blended Format

Starting in 2020, TMMBA offers a new blended schedule, which includes a combination of our traditional in-person classes with one “remote in” online class per quarter. This new structure allows us to reduce the weekend schedule to five in-person Saturday classes per quarter rather than the current ten Saturdays per quarter.

One Online Class Per Quarter

Under the new blended schedule, one class per quarter is conducted online in remote format. This is comprised of one in-person session followed by online meetings in real-time, designated as “Foster Live” sessions. These are synchronous class sessions led in live by the course professor. The Foster Live platform allows instructors to field student questions, lead group discussions, and place students into simultaneous breakout groups.

Flexible Online

  • Live online lectures
  • Interactive and monitored discussion boards
  • Carefully crafted video content
  • Active learning assessments
Scheduled Online

  • Two to three Foster Live sessions on Thursdays per quarter with faculty and fellow classmates
  • Virtual team simulations
  • Real-time course discussions

Sample TMMBA Two-week Schedule

Sample two-week schedule with three in-person sessions and one online session every two weeks

Sample Quarter

Sample quarter with evening classes every Wednesday, full-day classes every other Saturday, and online classes 2-3 Thursdays per quarter

In converting one course per quarter into the synchronous online format, we focused on the quantitative-heavy courses which lend themselves to more skills mastery.

Same Content. More Flexibility.

While we are offering a new delivery model, TMMBA’s world class MBA curriculum will remain the same. No content will be cut under this new schedule. Rather, we are confident that the increased flexibility will provide students the space and freedom to further excel.

Program Immersions

In addition to your weekly class meetings, you’ll have up to three special events:

Prior to the first quarter you’ll take part in the Program Immersion Week. During this time you’ll take 7-8 credits of coursework in a condensed seven-day schedule. You will need to take time off work to participate. Classes take place at the Eastside Executive Center, and Seattle Campus.

Prior to autumn quarter, you’ll take part in a Leadership Immersion. Students participate in leadership and management simulations and delve into critical issues like team-building and motivating employees.

For a global business perspective, we also offer an optional International Study Tour in the spring of the second year.

Class attendance and work-related travel

Class attendance and participation are a required part of the TMMBA Program. A great deal of learning takes place in the interactive classroom environment; therefore, students are expected to be active in each class session. Because TMMBA students are also working professionals, we understand that unexpected travel may occasionally prevent class attendance. Students must attend 80% of each course in-person in order to pass a course.
