Like our in-person courses, online courses from Executive Education are designed and led by Foster School faculty and taught using the same evidence-based research and application. Students will participate in discussions, breakout sessions, and direct interactions with our faculty. Courses are conducted via Zoom, which facilitates real-time interface between students and faculty via webcam and text-based chat.

Prior to the live class sessions, you will receive information about any pre-readings, assignments, or case studies that need to be completed before class.

In addition to the faculty, each course has an assigned Program Manager who will provide guidance throughout the course.


This program has both an online and in-person component. Live online classes will take place from September 19 – 28, 2021. In-person classes begin at 3:00 p.m. PT on September 29 in the Bank of America Executive Center on the University of Washington campus. Travel and hotel expenses are not included in the tuition for the program. We urge those who are outside Washington state to plan their travel to Seattle early to be on campus for the September 29th in-person afternoon session. On September 30, we will gather for a full-day, in-person leadership workshop, followed by a graduation dinner and ceremony.
