Foster MBA students at Amazon.comThe Foster School of Business ranked #1 among the nation’s top business schools with 43 percent of graduating MBAs securing high-paying positions in technology according to Poets & Quants. The Foster School’s MBA talent and its location in Seattle is a major advantage for Foster MBA grads seeking tech jobs–Poets & Quants notes that Foster’s “corporate neighbors include two of the most aggressive consumers of MBA talent: Amazon and Microsoft.” However, thanks to the school’s relationships with a wide range of companies, the hiring opportunities were much more diverse: Foster MBA graduates took tech jobs at firms including EMC, NetApp, Samsung, Tektronix, and VMware.
