Global Technical Leadership at Boeing

University of Washington modules

Executive Education at the UW Foster School of Business is collaborating with the Ed Wells Partnership at Boeing to deliver targeted, specially-designed sessions to support each of the four modules of the Global Technical Leadership at Boeing Certificate Program.

Each of the four sessions offered by UW Foster School of Business takes place at the UW main campus in Seattle on Fridays from 6:00-9:00pm and Saturdays from 12:30-5:30pm at the Bank of America Executive Education Center. Tuition for each Friday/Saturday session is $1,750 and does not include parking or meals on campus. You must register for each session separately.

Credits for Continuing Education (CEU) are available. You will receive 1 CEU for every 10 hours of class time. Successful completion of all four sessions at UW equates to 3.2 CEU credits.

To have tuition billed to Boeing Learning Together Program (LTP), you must attach an approved Boeing LTP voucher when you register for the session. The information required for LTP registration is below. After satisfactory completion of the program, we will provide you a certificate of completion to submit to LTP.
