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 sessions to support each of the four modules of the Global Technical Leadership at Boeing Certificate Program.

Each of our workshops will be offered twice per year – once in person on UW campus and once online, via Zoom. In both the online and in-person versions, the material covered and total number of class hours will be the same. Participants are free to choose the date and format that best suits them. Tuition for each session is $1,750. 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 letter of completion to submit to LTP.

*Note – you must be an active Boeing employee at the time of the class and meet all LTP eligibility requirements in order to use LTP benefits. If LTP determines that you are not eligible at the time of class (i.e., on LOA or terminated), you will be responsible for tuition costs.

Registration will open 60 days prior to the start of each program. Email Program Manager Allison McCarty at [email protected] with any questions.
