UW Hybrid MBA Expands U.S. Reach


UW’s Foster Hybrid MBA is growing in size and reach

UW Foster’s Hybrid MBA format is thriving (and bucking national MBA trends) with its unique delivery approach.

Launched in 2017, the University of Washington’s Hybrid MBA program offers a unique format, 95% online and 5% on campus. It allows students to engage in the renowned UW Foster academic experience from wherever they live across the United States while joining their classmates and professors quarterly on campus.

Since its inception, the Hybrid MBA program has attracted applicants from 21 different states. The first year of the program, six states were represented in the student body. Every year, there is an increase in state representation, as the program grows and builds national recognition.

What makes the Hybrid MBA an attractive option?

Unique Format

  • Each quarter, students come on campus for 3-5 days for in person class, to meet their professors for that quarter, and to network with each other and other Foster MBAs. Then course work going online with synchronous classes held weekly by Foster’s World Class Faculty, along with optional review sessions.

In Person Component. In Seattle.

Online. From Anywhere.

  • Students can log on for their “live” classes from wherever they are in the world. We’ve asked students “Where Did You Hybrid?” And the answers circled the globe from Cuba to Hungary to Japan and many places in between.
