Burst Your Bubble

  • Most Foster EMBA students have been with the same industry or company for a long time
  • Foster EMBA gives students the opportunity to break out of their respective bubbles
  • Garrett Hodgins (EMBA 2015) shares his perspective expanding his world business view



At first, I thought that it would be difficult to travel, to leave Boise, but part of what I really wanted was to get outside of the bubble. I think that everyone builds their business and their lives in a community. And it's very easy to get caught up in that. So not only are you furthering your education, but you're doing it outside of the world and bubble in which you live.

So for me, getting out of Boise was part of the education itself. Coming to Seattle, a very dynamic city, lots of different industry here, very solid industry and there's a lot of depth. And you really feel that when you get to campus. You feel that when you get to Seattle. And I think that was really part of what I wanted and part of what I got out of this education.
