Registration and Fees

This program is designed for owners and senior leaders of businesses owned by individuals who are people of color, women, veterans, disabled, LGBTQIA+, and other minority groups. Businesses with at least $500K in annual revenue will benefit most from the program. Prior participants have come from wide-ranging company types and sizes with annual revenues up to $35 million.

This program requires advance preparation and study, therefore early registration is highly encouraged. Assignments will be sent to participants prior to the program. In addition to live synchronous class time, there will be additional asynchronous sessions to be reviewed at your own pace prior to the live class sessions, and 3 days at the UW Seattle Campus. It is expected that participants will be free of other duties and will devote their full time during the course of the program.

Registration is now open for the 2022 session. Application deadline is August 22, 2022.

$4,950 program fee includes instruction, learning materials, and a Certificate of Completion from the University of Washington’s Michael G. Foster School of Business. The program fee does not cover any travel expenses related to attending the in-person class sessions in Seattle, such as airfare, hotel, meals outside of what is provided during the program schedule, or ground transportation.

Payment must be made by check, credit card prior to the start of the program or submit a purchase order for later invoice.
