Be a Foster Global Ambassador!

The Foster School of Business is proud to have 23 undergraduate university exchange partners around the world. To help inbound exchange students get the most out of their time at UW, a team of globally-minded Foster students called Foster Global Ambassadors (FGAs) partner with the Global Business Center (GBC) to lead the “Fostering Global Connections” program. Fostering Global Connections involves 2-3 events each quarter to help exchange students explore the beautiful campus and city, such as Mariner’s games or UW sporting events, company visits, and kayaking on the lake.

Why Become a Foster Global Ambassador?

Business is Global

Building intercultural competence is essential to success in business; establishing relationships with your peers from around the world is a great foundation.

Engage Yourself

The FGA Program is a great way to get involved globally while staying on campus. FGAs help the Global Business Center plan fun, cultural activities to welcome the Foster Inbound Exchange students, build connections between students, and help everyone get to know UW and Seattle. The program is called an ambassador program because that is exactly what the FGAs are, ambassadors for the Foster School! This program is integral to making sure the Foster Inbound Exchange students have an immersive and positive exchange at UW.

Have Fun
