Foster School of Business – University of Washington - Technology Management MBA

University of Washington Technology Management MBA Program Structure

The University of Washington Technology Management MBA (TTMBA) at the Foster School of Business takes 18 months to complete. Classes take place either Monday or Wednesday from 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., as well as 10 Saturdays per quarter. The program is designed to be compatible with students who are working full-time. There is more than one way to earn an MBA from the Foster School, but all ways lead to earning a Foster MBA. The TMMBA Program is built on the same platform as the full-time MBA program, so you can expect your professors, learning resources, student activities and the promise of the Foster brand are all delivered at the highest level.

In addition to your weekly class meetings, you’ll have up to three special events:

Prior to the first quarter, you’ll take part in the Program Immersion Week. During this time you’ll take 7-8 credits of coursework in a condensed seven-day schedule. You will need to take time off work to participate. Classes take place at the Eastside Executive Center and Seattle Campus.

Prior to the autumn quarter, you’ll take part in a Leadership Immersion. Students participate in leadership and management simulations and delve into critical issues like team-building and motivating employees.

From a global business perspective, Foster also offers an optional International Study Tour in the spring of the second year.

Class attendance and participation are a required part of the TMMBA Program. A great deal of learning takes place in the interactive classroom environment; therefore, students are expected to be active in each class session. Because TMMBA students are also working professionals, we understand that unexpected travel may occasionally prevent class attendance. Students must attend 80% of each course in-person in order to pass a course.

Curriculum at the Foster Technology Management MBA

The University of Washington Technology Management MBA requires 66 credits to complete, with eight program immersion credits, followed by six quarters of classes. The program is designed for technology professionals and entrepreneurs to learn relevant business management techniques. Courses cover topics such as Negotiations, Microeconomics, and Decision Modeling.

Starting in 2020, TMMBA offers a new blended schedule, which includes a combination of our traditional in-person classes with one “remote in” online class per quarter. This new structure allows us to reduce the weekend schedule to five in-person Saturday classes per quarter rather than the current ten Saturdays per quarter.

Under the new blended schedule, one class per quarter is conducted online in remote format. This is comprised of one in-person session followed by online meetings in real-time, designated as “Foster Live” sessions. These are synchronous class sessions led in live by the course professor. The Foster Live platform allows instructors to field student questions, lead group discussions, and place students into simultaneous breakout groups.
