Undergraduate Profile and Employment Outcomes

Employers tell us they choose Foster graduates for their education, strategic thinking and entrepreneurial spirit. Our students are capable of leading teams and, ultimately, organizations and can roll up their sleeves to solve complex, unstructured, real-world problems.

Internship Guide

Opportunities to learn outside the classroom are a critical component of a college education. Internships provide a powerful mechanism for students to learn and for employers to guide and evaluate future talent.  When done well, internships are truly a win-win!  Download this Internship Guide for tips and resources for establishing and enhancing internship programs.

UW utilizes the online recruiting platform Handshake to facilitate employer and student outreach — think LinkedIn for students! Hundreds of colleges and universities use Handshake, making it easier for companies to post jobs, internships, and events to a massive pool of potential candidates. Companies can connect directly with individual students, too. 

Learn more from Foster’s Handshake Guide or visit Handshake’s Employer Help Page.

Registered Student Organizations

The Foster School of Business encourages participation in student activities and organizations as an excellent way to experience personal growth, meet new friends, share common interests with other students, faculty, staff, and employers and have some fun outside the classroom. Through participation in these organizations, students can enhance leadership and engage in experiential learning while working to fulfill organizational goals. Click here for contact info and to learn more about each of these Foster-specific (business-minded) RSOs.


The Foster School of Business is committed to recruiting and retaining a diverse student body by creating a culture of respect which values diversity, equity and inclusion. Foster is home to many organizations, programs, clubs, and scholarships committed to these values.
